Jesse Malin made a video for “Whitestone City Limits,” playing his debut LP in full in NYC, reissuing ‘The Heat’
Last year, Jesse Malin released two new albums, New York Before the War and Outsiders. The latter includes the song "Whitestone City Limits," and a new video for that song premieres in this post. About the song, Jesse says, "I wrote this song fooling around at a soundcheck in Memphis after hearing an old Ike and Tina tune [“Nutbush City Limits”] covered by AC/DC (with Brian Johnson not Axl :)) I’ve always loved songs about leaving. I also felt I needed a little Chuck Berry in there, without the cameras in the toilets." Check it out below.
Jesse has other stuff coming up too. He's giving an expanded 2xCD/2xLP reissue to his 2004 sophomore album, The Heat, on July 29 via One Little Indian (pre-order). He's also performing his 2003 debut album, The Fine Art of Self-Destruction, in full at NYC's City Winery on June 17. There's an early show which is sold out, and a late show which is still on sale. His only other solo shows are in the UK (all dates are listed below).
Also as previously mentioned, Jesse's old band D Generation are back with their "classic" lineup -- Jesse with with Danny Sage, Howie Pyro, Michael Wildwood and Richard Bacchus -- and they're releasing their new album Nothing is Anywhere on July 29 via Bastard Basement Records. They'll play a release show on July 30 at Irving Plaza with Biters and Jeremy and The Harlequins. Tickets for that show are on sale.
