    Kiss the bottle is a jawbreaker song. not quite good to judge him on a cover in my opinion, although he does do it well!

    i like the lawrence arms and all, but i am pretty burnt out on brendan kelly. he is just not good by himself. joe from smoke or fire did so much better on the split and brendan kelly and the wandering birds is just so bad.

    This cover of Kiss The Bottle is second only to the Lucero cover.

    It's because the song is based on the McCarthy Novel Blood Meridian: The Last Pale Light In The West...
