Last summer, as we were road trippin, we were listening to Pretty Lights.
Finally Moving came on and Pete (Peter Di Stefano of Porno For Pyros) said it sounded like JImi Hendrix. He grabbed his guitar and started strumming All Along The Watch Tower as it played..
“No reason to get excited,”
The thief, he kindly spoke
“There are many here among us
Who feel that life is but a joke…
We struggled with the Etta James sample…. To be honest, it’s played out, over-used and we spent months over-thinking it. We worried the over-use of it would take away from the beauty of two legendary musicians singing to each other from the grave. As we stood on the stage at Wakarusa last summer watching Pretty Lights with our team and friends.. Derek played Finally Moving. Watching the crowd singing “sometimes I get a good feeling” together in the beautiful Ozark mountains we knew we had to leave it in.

Almost doing things we used to do
