The Spin Doctors: If The River Was Whiskey: They aren’t best known for being a blues band – but if the Spin Doctors had their way, that’s how things would have gone. The video for If The River Was Whiskey, title track of their most recent album, demonstrates their blues roots. And singer Chris Barron says it’s the record they would have made if the big-time hadn’t come knocking via 1991’s Pocket Full Of Kryptonite. He explains: “Every note feels dangerous. It’s like this ramshackle, broken carriage running down a cobblestone hill with pots and pans, and a screaming baby…” The Spin Doctors play London’s Garage on September 25.
