Leather Girls: Security

Garage rock and soulfulness have always been two ingredients that mix together really well. Call to mind how soulful garage rock was in the mid-sixties or flash forward many years later and think about how skillfully bands like The Dirtbombs and The Detroit Cobras epitomized the merging of those styles. Return to present day and play loud this excellent rendition of a classic Otis Redding song from his brilliant debut studio album, Pain In My Heart, from 1964.

Security has been previously covered from Etta James, Mavis Staples, and many others, while the most garage punk-oriented versions of it have been those by The Saints in 1978 and The Lyres in 1995.

Texan four-piece, Leather Girls, fresh off a very well received full length, have now unveiled their previously unreleased studio version of Security, and it sounds as raw and gritty as you would have expected from them, while maintaining all of the song's original soulfulness.
