If all Michael Jackson musical tributes were this good, I would be OK with the steady stream of MJ covers to keep popping up for the rest of humanity. If you like this, you can also check out a good take on Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin from the same show. Randolph & The Family Band play the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan on Friday, and their next USA gig is August 7th in Kansas City MO.
We’ve also got the rare opportunity of supplementing Last Week’s Audio with Last Week’s Video, same track – same show, and you gotta check out the five minute mark, there’s some serious break dancing.

As this song starts, you can hear Son Volt front-man Jay Farrar say that this song is for Keith Richards. Of course it is, because the song is about how Richards supposedly made a powdered concoction that was one part his father’s ashes and one part Colombian Marching Powder. According to recent remarks made to Spinner, Farrar was inspired by this. Son Volt plays a double-bill with the Cowboy Junkies tonight in Seattle.
