Street Sweeper Social Club and Trent Reznor cover MC5's "Kick Out the Jams"

For those as far out of the loop as myself, Street Sweeper Social Club is The Coup's Boots Riley and RATM/AudioSlave guitarist/Nightwatchman, Tom Morello. They're currently filling the opening slot on the Jane's Addiction / NIN tour. (Pictured below playing the May 9 show at Ford Amphitheatre; photo taken by Phil Bardi.)

I saw Boots last year while he was out on the road with Galactic and he totally stole the show. The idea of him collaborating with Tom Morello has me extremely excited. Unfortunately, the three tracks of theirs that my buddy supplied me with last night have done little more than disappoint.

None the less, last Sunday, Boots and Trent Reznor shared the stage and mic duties on a cover of MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams” and I think it turned out pretty awesome.
