The Original artists were pioneers of the post punk movement. They emphasized mood and expression as lead by their tormented lead singer who eventually took his own life. Another band formed from the remains of the original that had a brighter sound and achieved greater commercial success.

Today’s song paints a picture of a broken marriage.

Our Shadow version has the direct opposite feel, the sadness is played in an upbeat Jazz Funeral style which makes sense for this New Orleans group that has played many second lines. They are not the best known in that genre so we’ll try for word clues; warm, number, the type of group can also be a “military” or “concert style” band.
