Graham Nash’s 1971 classic, “I Used To Be A King” Cover
Of the making of “I Used To Be A King,” Oldermost’s frontman Bradford Bucknum expands on their choice to cover it: “Songs for Beginners is not necessarily a unique find in a record store bin, but the record still feels like a special discovery when you first set on eyes on the simple and somewhat lusterless album cover. “I Used To Be A King” starts with a tempo just slow enough to hold the listener in a state of suspension. You think: there is a release on the horizon. And then Nash sings “It’s alright …” and the song picks up, but only to build more tension and then there is the most rewarding part of the song at the tail end of the chorus—”No one is going to break my heart again”—where the listener experiences that sweet release. This track also seemed like a great opportunity to highlight the string arrangements that have helped make our musical output stand apart. There’s also a sweetness and a melancholy to the song and it takes a healthy dose of both to mix up an Oldermost song.”

Eventually this became a method of fun and engaging escape that expanded without limits. This pure joy for music, a world where anything is possible, is the founding element of his music.
