Song Premiere: Left Lane Cruiser, "The Pusher" (Hoyt Axton cover)

Beck In Black is a collection of songs from Left Lane Cruiser’s first albums for Alive, hand picked by original drummer Brenn “Sausage Paw” Beck (now replaced by Pete Dio), lovingly remastered. It was originally released this spring as part of an exclusive Metallic Gold Vinyl pressing for Record Store Day, and will now be available July 8 on CD and digital formats for the first time, with an additional three previously unreleased songs, including an awesome cover of Hoyt Axton’s classic “The Pusher.”
Trashed-out punk/blues duo Left Lane Cruiser has been making records for over a decade, and along with their music being featured in many hit television series such as BansheeBreaking Bad, and Nashville, they have been receiving critical acclaim across the globe. Left Lane Cruiser have toured relentlessly over the years, sharing the stage with artists such as Robert Balfour, T Model Ford, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Bob Log III and many others.
To celebrate the release, Ghettoblaster has the pleasure of sharing “The Pusher,” a cover of Hoyt Axton’s classic song, today. Freddy J IV of Left Lane Cruiser had this to say about it:
“We had a blast recording this track. Hoyt Axton is an amazing songwriter. I’m also a big fan of his work in the Gremlins movie. We chose to cover this song because we truly respect Mr. Axton’s perspective on the difference between marijuana and narcotics. The difference between the dealer and the pusher. Basically, marijuana is beautiful and medicinal, while narcotics are evil and toxic.”
