FlinterFile: Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats- S.O.B.
In 2015, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats made their debut. The group was formed in 2013, after two solo records from Nathaniel Rateliff, which were more Americana based. With his group, he plays more a sort of R&B, and they made their debut this year. It is about alcohol, and more specific: about a man who wastes his life drinking. It was more a joke than a real song, but luckily decided to record it after positive feedback from others. In the US, it had made the Top 5 of several charts, even number 1 on the Adult Alternative chart! Enjoy

FlinterFile: Pacific Gas And Electric- Are You Ready?
In 1970, Pacific Gas & Electric recorded their only song that made the charts. John Hill wrote the song together with drummer and the later singer Charlie Allen, and made quite some references to gospel: the first line is a reference to Matthew 24:4, there’s a reference to a sort of gospel song and a classic riddle… all together it brought them to number 14 in the charts, a spot they would never make again. The band dissolved in 1973. Enjoy

Song of the day: Les Humphries Singers- Mexico
1972 ment a big hit for this popgroup, or should I say gospel? However, they had a huge hit with a swinging (feeling like disco…) song which is just to good to leave behind in this account. Besides, it gives a perfect reflection of the time. The strange thing, however, is that it was a huge hit in the Netherlands, but I really can’t find it in the end chart of Billboard. Different opinions, maybe? Enjoy
