Mp3 of the Week: Bullseye

MP3 of the Week: Bullseye, "Mick Jagger's Birthday Bash"

DOWNLOAD: Bullseye, "Mick Jagger's Birthday Bash" (mp3)

As imagined by a bunch of Pioneer Valley pre-teens, the party in question appears to take place in the future, and in Heaven: there’s a cool guest list (Dylan and Johnny Cash, Art Garfunkel and the Clash) and cooler party favors (guitar picks by Hendrix, a song by Stevie Nicks), but kind of a creepy vibe (the Stones sneak them ice-cream cones, Dee Dee Ramone phones home). The Bullseye line-up (average age: 11) includes the 10- and 12-year-old offspring of veteran musician, booking agent, one-time Donnas producer, and film-music consultant Greg “Skeggy” Kendall — which explains why the riff sounds closer to Smoosh than to Kidz Bop and more “Gimme Shelter” than either. The kids have already opened for soft-alt-pop megastars the Fray, and on August 11 they’ll open for Kristen Hersh's reunited Throwing Muses at the Middle East [Click for show details].
