Alice in Chains’ “Man in the Box” is a staple of ‘90s hard rock that no musician has dared try to genre bend – until now. Featured on the upcoming album Four Foot Shack, Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang has created a rootsy, banjo-filled rendition of the track that completely turns the original version on its head. Listen + share it via SPIN HERE.
Upon listening to Four Foot Shack you’ll quickly discover that Les and Bryan made it a point to keep things as live-sounding as humanly possible. “It was very live,” admits Les. “In fact, it was a little difficult, with all the bleed of the stomping and the bass and the vocals. Every now and again you can hear the studio refrigerator come on or the dog barking at something outside in the background. Once it was there, you had to kind of leave it.”
