Day 7

July 13th 2018
Friday 13th – New Moon

It’s Day 7 of the SydArthur Fes­ti­val, the New Moon, and Fri­day the 13th – unlucky for some. Ah, but for we rock’n’roll hea­thens stomp­ing in the sum­mer heat, dows­ing our World Cup blues in the idiot dance of the moment, it’s time to sum­mon ‘Fire Spir­it’ by the Gun Club. ‘Fire Spir­it’ invokes the ignis-fatu­us, the fool­ish fire, the Kun­dali­ni-esque thrill-spir­it that snaps at us and whips us in the rock’n’roll of our dervish dance. Sung and intoned by the late Jef­frey Lee Pierce, here­in his low-key Cal­i­for­nia hill­bil­ly drawl nev­er falls below the buz­z­saw ramala­ma gui­tar lev­els of his Gun Club, despite at times bare­ly horse-whis­per­ing his lyrics. “I will be cheat­ing, the whole ritual!”
