Jethro Tull - Rocks on The Road

There's a black cat down on the quayside.
Ship's lights, green eyes glowing in the dark.
Two young cops handing out a beating:
know how to hurt and leave no mark.
Down in the half-lit bar of the hotel
there's a call for the last round of the day.
Push back the stool, take that elevator ride.
Fall in bed and kick my shoes away.
Rocks on the road.

Is the first vers from todays tune by the British progressive rock group "Jethro Tull". Their music is characterised by the vocals, acoustic guitar, and flute playing of Ian Anderson, who has led the band since its founding, and the guitar work of Martin Barre, who has been with the band since 1969, after he replaced original guitarist Mick Abrahams.

Formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967, initially playing experimental blues rock, they later incorporated elements of classical music, folk music, jazz, hard rock and art rock into their music. During a career that has spanned more than forty years, Jethro Tull have sold more than 60 million albums worldwide.

Todays tune "Rocks on The Road" is taken from the 18th studio album "Catfish Rising", released in 1991. It is the first Tull album to feature keyboardist Andrew Giddings.

Hmm, inser nu att det var allt för länge sedan det lyssnades på Jethro här hemma... Blec riktigt sugen på lite Aqualung nu.
