13 Aug Jim White On Breaking Bad
Congratulations to Jim White, whose song Wordmule is featured in the latest episode of big hit TV show Breaking Bad, which aired in the US this weekend. We wouldn’t wish to be responsible for giving away any spoilers, so we’ll let you check it out for yourselves.
Wordmule is taken from Jim’s 1997 album Wrong-Eyed Jesus, released through David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label, whilst Jim’s latest album Where It Hits You is out now and available right here, through the Loose shop. Visit Jim’s Facebook page to discover the story behind the song.
In an interview with Vulture.com last week, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan calls for a shout-out to Jim White: “He is a wonderful musician who is very underappreciated, and everyone should be listening to his stuff because I think he’s brilliant. The lyrics in “Wordmule” were perfect.” Read the full interview here.
Take Vince’s fine advice and check out Jim White when he visits next month for a full UK tour.
