Matt “MV” Valentine – “Thirteen” (Big Star Cover)
Matt “MV” Valentine — one of the brains behind MV & EE — will release a covers compilation titled HEAP ZONE which includes his rendition of songs by Davy Graham, Spacemen 3, Wilie Nelson, Nikki Sudden, the Grateful Dead, and more. The CD will only be available at the merch table during his forthcoming Blazing Bird road trip with the Doozer. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there are probably a shitload of people on this earth who remember the exact situation they were in when they first heard Big Star’s “Thirteen.” It’s an inherently nostalgic song, and Valentine adds a dream-like quality to it.
