MP3: Black Math Experiment's "Wicked Game"
David Arquette’s H-Town BFFs Black Math Experiment are the first to get with the program here at new and improved Houstoned Rocks. They sent along this droll rendition of Chris Isaak’s haunting 1990 top ten hit “Wicked Game”:
Few can sing match Isaak’s soaring Orbisonian tenor, so Black Math’s singer Jef With One F was wise to give it this stentorian, actorly, damn near Nimoyesque reading. Backing is good, despite organ a little too hot in the mix. I dig Christy Lain’s cooed backing vocals. Grade 85.78 – John Nova Lomax
