Foul Deeds

Album: Foul Deeds (2010)
  • Pegi Young is Neil Young's wife. She released her first album in 2007, and Foul Deeds followed in 2010. Pegi has been married to Neil since 1978, but she waited until their kids were older to focus on her music. In our 2010 Pegi Young interview, she told us that most of her songs come to her from random moments of inspiration. Explaining this title track, she said: "That's one where I woke up out of a dream. I was actually dreaming of something else completely. I was dreaming about this guy, Reverend Ike, and this venue up in Harlem called the United Palace. It's a big beautiful old church they've converted into a musical venue. But it's Reverend Ike's church. And I was just thinking about Reverend Ike, and I woke up and I started to write this one song, and then this other one just arrived. I started thinking about foul deeds and I don't know, maybe when you go to church that's something you're supposed to think about. I was raised Catholic."
