[ROCK’N’ROLL] The murder of San Francisco politician Harvey Milk isn’t exactly the cheeriest narrative to frame a song around, but a peppy melody and a little ’50s doo-wop go a long way. “White Night, Big City,” inspired by the assassination of the country’s first openly gay politician, is one of 12 stripped-down, punky cuts off singer-songwriter Chuck Prophet’s latest full-length ode to his dear hometown. Entitled Temple Beautiful, it’s structured around quirky hooks, a mélange of strings and slashing Kinks-esque guitars. But the aforementioned ironies easily belie the former Green on Red guitarist’s outwardly superficial Lou Reed-y underbelly.
