"Gin and Juice", The Gourds

Here at IBL Central we enjoy a cover version of a song that puts a new spin on the original.  Previously in these pages we have presented several of these change-ups, including Buddy Miller's take on Roger Miller's hit Dang Me (9/2/2011), White Stripes covering Dolly Parton (Jolene, 12/10/2011), Oak Ridge Boys covering White Stripes (Seven Nation Army, 1/14/2012), and, just yesterday, Warren Zevon's version of Raspberry Beret.

And, so, I give you The Gourds covering Snoop Dog's Gin and Juice, and I will make the leap of faith that you are familiar with the original.  I will also acknowledge that, you know, this song could be a little problematic; please feel free to discuss that if you care to...

In any event, looking forward to seeing The Gourds open for James McMurtry on the 18th at the Neptune here in Seattle...
