Iggy Pop and Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast duet on a song called “Let’s Boot And Rally,” written by KCRW’s Gary Calamar and James Combs for “True Blood.” It’s a classic rocker and quite a treat hearing Pop and Cosentino trading verses.
As Calamar writes:
Now, I have always been a weekend songwriter. I can bang out a handful of chords and I must say I’ve written a few stone classics over the years….in my mind anyway. Back at my office I break out my trusty rhyming dictionary and I start thumbing through it….mmm, one thing leads to another and I started getting, how you say, inspired. At this point I called my very talented friend and brilliant songwriter, James Combs and asked him to collaborate. We got down to business and came up with a song “Let’s Boot and Rally“. As many songwriters say, “the song just wrote itself”, “I was just a vessel”. That’s what happened, kinda.
