Garland Jeffreys Vs Chuck Prophet says
Chuck Prophet & the Mission Express are thrilled to be backing Garland as well as doing our own thing on these shows. Garland came to see us at the Bell House in Brooklyn and we worked up some songs for the encore. It was a blast and we made big plans to do more. What can I tell you about Garland? (People get a kick out of hearing he was Lou Reed's college roommate. Who swept the floor? With who?)

Garland Jeffreys recorded "Wild in the Streets" with swamp-boogie grand wizard Dr. John, but its hot-summer-asphalt beat and back-alley-hiss chorus are NYC through and through — just like Jeffreys himself. Born in Brooklyn in the 1940s, half black and half Puerto Rican, he went to college with Lou Reed and was an early protégé of John Cale. If you go into a jukebox bar NYC and Garland Jeffreys ain't on the jukebox, turn around. You're in the wrong bar.
