Citizen Cope – “Let the Drummer Kick”


Citizen Cope – “Let the Drummer Kick”

Citizen Cope is the pseudonym of Clarence Greenwood. off his self-titled debut LP in 2002, “Let the Drummer Kick” is a good example of how solid music will remain relevant. synched on So You Think You Can Dance, an Acura commercial and many others 6+ years after it was released, Greenwood is clearly an early proponent of the licensing that so many today seek. is that a bad thing? as Iggy Pop puts it, “If people want to use my songs to sell sausages, that’s fine because they weren’t made for sausages.” will this song be used for sausages? only time will tell.. but the good news is “you don’t even have to wait”
