The Cribs Let You Inside Their Mobile Crib

August 17, 2007 7:50 PM ET

The Cribs, a melodic punk trio of brothers from Yorkshire, England, released their third album Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever last month, and it's quickly become one of our office favorites. When the band came through New York City on tour we hung out with them before their show at the Bowery Ballroom. Check out this video in which the boys chat about the rigors of the road, their influences, and growing up as bandmates and brothers. After you watch the video, click through this snazzy Cribs photo gallery here.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
