That was a bit of a surprise. Mick Jagger new solo pandemic defying single ‘Easy Sleazy’  is sprightly noisy affair that sounds like Wire first album’s deadpan concrete punk but with added Grohl-grunge and a whiff of inevitable Stones. It’s pretty good and noisy with tongue in cheek lyrics about the lockdown with a list of the mundane time killing activities that even Sir Mick seems to much around with. The 77 year old singer seems to be denying age though and the song is full of explosive energy driven by Dave Grohl’s ever fantastic drum explosions and also his guitar and bass racket – a return to ribald form for him as well.
