The Smoking Flowers :: Let’s Die Together


Het echtpaar Kim & Scott Collins uit Nashville laat zich niet uit het veld slaan door de borstkanker van Kim. Integendeel, hun nieuwe CD Let’s Die Together is een ultieme liefdesplaat. Daarop zijn ze de punky versie van Gram Parsons en Emmylou Harris en de Everly Brothers, geduchte concurrenten van Robert Plant & Patti Griffin en Gillian Welch & Dave Rawlings, soortgenoten van Shovels & Rope en The White Stripes. Prachtliedjes, prachtzang, prachtspel. Wat een energie, wat een rebellie. Dit is rootsmuziek zonder grenzen.

Musically speaking, Kim dances between drums, accordion, acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, shimmering tambourine and her own sensual, simmering vocals. Scott plays electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, and delivers his vocals with the voice of a feisty, gin-battered, heart-on-sleeve, hardscrabble troubadour. They have influences that range from Led Zeppelin to Gillian Welch and The Ramones to Neil Young. Kim was ironically considered by one of those very influences when she was up for the female vocalist spot in Robert Plant’s “Band of Joy”. Unbeknownst to Kim, Mr. Plant had been listening to some of her recordings and loved her voice. But as fate would have it her friend Patti Griffin got the role. “The job was clearly destined for Patti. I mean look at her and Robert now! I do believe in a good love story, after all” says a sighing Kim.
