RANDY NeW­mAN

UNCUT - - Iron & Wine Omd Steven Wilson Kd Lang U2 Sly Stone -

There are, it seems, lim­its for even the great­est satirists. “I did write [a song about Trump], but it was just too vul­gar,” Randy New­man tells us on p22. The mind bog­gles at how vul­gar it must have been, given this grandiose farce about Rus­sia’s bare-chested supremo. A 70-piece orches­tra, turn­ing on the old Broad­way ritz, makes “Putin” one of Un­cut’s most dra­matic open­ing tracks to date.
