New name to me but looked interesting and worth a punt on a quiet Wednesday. Did some discogs research and got drawn in to a world- as you/I do. He’s been around a while (as I’m sure you knew) and sounds it. Looks a bit like a younger Elvis Costello (alright he’s got short hair, glasses & guitar) and sounds like a gnarled Western old-timer, but his songs are strangely sweet and golden at the same time. A life of pain and woe and nasty accidents and heartfelt songs to match. Gothic country anyone?
Usual Thekla – hipsters and hip replacements. No Jeff tonight.
It made me think..
God I need cheering up – today especially – so Meilyr Jones next week. Make me smile.
