“The Search for Cherry Red" by Jonathan Fire*Eater, covered by the Kills
There’s nothing like the validation one gets from influential friends.
Music legend-in-the-making, Stewart Lupton (of the defunct mod-rock band Jonathan Fire*Eater) has seen a resurgence of interest in his brilliant songwriting skills after buddies Jamie Hince and Allison Mosshart (of the Kills) covered “The Search for Cherry Red.”
The tune is creepy and mysterious -- think of it as the musical equivalent of a Bret Easton Ellis novel. While other members of Jonathan Fire*Eater have gone on to success with the Walkmen, it is Lupton who is still influencing acts such as Interpol, Cat Power and the aforementioned British duo.
