JazzTimes is honored to present the premiere of “The Pink Room” by mssv, a new group consisting of guitarist Mike Baggetta, bassist Mike Watt (former member of punk-rock legends the Minutemen and fIREHOSE), and drummer Stephen Hodges (who played on Watt’s 1997 solo album Contemplating the Engine Room and who has also been a sideman for Mavis Staples, Tom Waits, and many more). The track, originally written by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti for Lynch’s 1992 film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me, appears on the trio’s debut album Live Flowers, to be released December 1 on Striped Light Records. 

Although the reasons for the title Live Flowers are that a) the album was recorded live and b) much of its material originally appeared on Baggetta’s recent studio album Wall of Flowers, the band here is not quite the same as on the earlier disc, which featured studio great Jim Keltner on drums.
