Bonnie “Prince” Billy helped The Black Cab Sessions ring in their 100th session, which was released online today. Billy—also known as Will Oldham—and the trio that accompanied him played “Black Captain,” which Oldham referred to as “Black Cab-tain” on the session.
Maybe the most entertaining moment is watching Oldham look worried at the noise of a police car in the background — with the four piece crammed into the back of the cab, the band’s means of transport didn’t look very legal. You can watch the morose, seven-minute cut below.
