“Everybody in the band are such exceptional musicians. Everybody does their homework, so we didn’t rehearse for this song,” Smash Palace member Steve Butler admits in the latest In The Pocket video documentary. “We actually just made the decision to record it two days ago.”
But the latest track from David Uosikkinen’s In The Pocket project sounds as if the band has been practicing together for months. Featuring Uosikkinen on drums, fellow Hooters member Fran Smith Jr. on bass, Steve Butler on guitar, and singer/songwriter Cliff Hillis on vocals, In The Pocket brings attention back to Todd Rundgren’s 1972 single “I Saw The Light” and everything it stood for. Watch the mini documentary below to find out why each member wanted to cover this track. Listen to the full song via Soundcloud to get ready to In The Pocket’s live show at Colonial Theater this Saturday. Tickets and details can be found here.
