. . . Because that’s what Roger Daltrey keeps calling it. Pete and Roger are back together for a new album and I can’t be more excited – not because they’re back together (because they’ve been touring together as The Who for quite a few years now) but because I’ve heard a number of songs here and there from Endless Wire and they’re all surprisingly excellent. (I’ve heard “It’s Not Enough,” “Tea & Theatre,” and the Wire & Glass EP, which is just snippets from the album proper, and now the following . . . )

The pair showed up on David Letterman last week to play an acoustic version of “A Man in a Purple Dress,” Pete’s scathing attack on organized religion written after watching The Passion Of The Christ, a performance which I completely missed because I didn’t even know they were going to be on, but I found it on YouTube and share it here so hopefully you too can enjoy it now:

There’s a whole bunch of information in the official album press release on Pete’s site to whet your appetite. Just don’t get turned off by the cover:

Endless Wire

What is this, 1983, and we’re at a motivational speaking gig? Awful.
