Intrepid Undercover watchers already noticed that Huey Lewis' "The Power Of Love" had been scrawled on our wall, autographed by awesome shredder Marnie Stern, for a couple of months. In the first (and hopefully last) case of Undercover technical difficulties, that session basically turned out unusable. We apologize to Ms. Stern and her band. But in stepped The Hold Steady, who you readers angrily insisted we get in here for a session anyway. They felt the power, they felt the power of love, and now they've passed it along to you. Ladies and gentlemen, The Hold Steady.
