Singer Gavin Blair's Barrett-like voice and Russ Tolman's insistent, psychedelic guitar leanings made the band the perfect candidate to cover the Floyd, and they did on a fine rendition of "Lucifer Sam." "Hollywood Holiday" was a sort of signature tune for True West, encapsulating the band's lowdown, California aesthetic. A fine intro to the band, as it includes their debut EP, True West, produced by Tolman and the Dream Syndicate's Steve Wynn.
