The Loaded Poets - "Lock On Your Head"

Guest Post by Jim Wood of The Loaded Poets:
 

Written during Loaded Poets' 10-year anniversary jam, Lock On Your Head is a spirited blues crawl bemoaning the imprisonment of the human mind, and is more relevant today than it was when first written.

 

Loaded Poets perform it with gusto at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York, where they celebrated the digital release of the feature film The Front Man, which focuses on Loaded Poets. Guitarist John Kayne is in his element and at his best during his scorching solo.
