Song of the Day: Helmet's 'And Your Bird Can Sing'
Helmet, led by guitar wizard Page Hamilton, will perform at the Depot in November, and on the band's latest album, he covers one of my favorite Beatles songs, "And Your Bird Can Sing," off of "Revolver." (Don't ask me what the song is about.) It doesn't top the original, but it's a look at a fun side of Hamilton, who otten sings about dour subjects. I will be talking to him later today.
