The Greenhornes Visit Rolling Stone

Jan 3, 2011 at 3:04 pm

The local boys done good. The Greenhornes capped off their “comeback” year — which saw the critically-acclaimed release of new material on Jack White’s Third Man imprint after years in limbo due to the rhythm section’s projects with White — with an acoustic session in the offices of Rolling Stone. The magazine has released video of the sessions (find the link below), which, quite literally, span the group’s entire discography.—-

The video — which features drummer Patrick Keeler banging away on a cardboard box — includes songs from the new album, ****, as well as “Hold Me” from the band’s 1999 debut, Gun For You, and “But I Ain’t Got You,” a cover of a song by ’60s Boston Pop/Rock cult faves The Remains.

You have to watch a Honda commercial, but the crisp video and strong performances are worth it. Dig in here.

Bonus: Below is another video piece about the band from the magazine, shot before its appearance last year at the All Tomorrow’s Parties fest in New York, featuring some live footage and an interview with the members.
