MP3 of the Week: The Fatal Flaw "Narrow Hours"

The Fatal Flaw

There’s already a bunch of songs written about Alzheimer’s disease, but they’ve all been generally forgettable. Perhaps the catchiest ditty of dementia is now the FATAL FLAW’s new single, “Narrow Hours,” which singer/guitarist Joel Reader penned about the residents of a local assisted-living community for Alzheimer’s patients, and especially a healthy elderly man who visits his sick wife each day despite her increasing memory loss. The bum-out storyline notwithstanding, Reader — formerly of San Francisco punk beacons the Mr. T Experience and the Avengers — maintains his uncanny ability to write a melody, and the song’s upbeat drop-D tuning belies its sad-face lyrical content. The lead track off an upcoming album of the same name, “Narrow Hours” gets the live treatment March 19 at Great Scott in Allston. Commit it to memory in advance by grabbing the MP3 below.
