What would the Fourth of July be without, well err, X’s “Fourth of July”? This song is an American classic. It’s taken from the band’s 1986 album See How We Are and was was written by the Grammy winning Dave Alvin. He’s well known for being the driving force behind L.A.s roots rock band The Blasters as well as from his time writing and performing with X and The Knitters.
As we reported a few weeks back, you can see X on tour this September with Blondie.
Happy Fourth of July!
