In Honor of Philadelphia Beer Week

I'm not from Philadelphia. And the band that sent me this, Jesus H. Christ & The Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse, is from New York, not Philadelphia. And the video was shot in Massachusetts, not Philadelphia.

But what the Hell. It's Philadelphia somewhere.




Here's some info Risa from JHC sent me. I normally hate press release stuff, but I liked this.


"Alcoholics In My Town" is Jesus H Christ and The Four Hornsmen of The Apocalypse’s take on an ode to small town life, crossed with a great American drinking song that actually calls out the alcoholism looming under both genres.

“Let’s party like we’ll never get old,” the message seems to be, “And then let’s run our van into a guardrail on the way home and become paralyzed from the waist down and not have health insurance.”

The band wanted to write a song that celebrated small town life, in the vein of John Cougar Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen: songs about the people they grew up with: the good times and the good buddies.

But, growing up in small towns, they knew, from personal experience, that most of these Good-Time-Charlies-and-Charlenes were usually alcoholics. The band doesn’t condemn, or exclude themselves, from this state of affairs- they just wanted to be medically accurate.

Mose Allison Plays This Year's SF Bandstand

It's true. The great Mose Allison will play on the Plaza for free Tuesday July 19 as part of the Santa Fe Bandstand program.

Zimbabwe music giant Thomas Mapfumo also is part of the program this summer, as is Cracker, who I saw do a fantastic show in Albuquerque a couple of years ago.

And for you fans of Treme,  New Orleans voodoo blues badass Coco Robicheaux is scheduled for Tuesday August 9. (Will he sacrifice a rooster on stage? You'll just have to wait and see.)

Also on board are loads of my favorite local groups. there's zydeco, Cuban music, western swing, jazz, blues, mariachi, reggae, native American music and more.

The schedule is below.

Steve Terrell is proud to report to the monthly Freeform American Roots Radio list

R.I.P. GSH

I just learned of the death of Gil Scott Heron.

NPR, which first reported his death, says he died Friday afternoon in New York at the age of 62.

The influential poet and musician is often credited with being one of the progenitors of hip-hop, and is best known for the spoken-word piece "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
His 2010 album I'm New Here was one of my favorites of the year. I reviewed it HERE 

I'll do a special set for Gil Sunday night on Terrell's Sound World.

TERRELL'S TUNEUP: An Outbreak of Dengue Fever

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican
May 27, 2011


Whenever a band is based on an unusual concept — say, re-creating and building upon a suppressed style of music from several decades ago from a faraway land — there are inherent dangers.

First of all, said band might become too stuffy and scholarly, drifting away from being a creator to being a curator. Or, such a band might get a whiff of success and yield to the temptation of distancing itself from its original mission. And, of course, with any musical act there’s always the danger that what sounded fresh and innovative a couple of years ago will eventually sound dated and stale.

I’m happy to report that my favorite psychedelic Californian/Cambodian band Dengue Fever has avoided all those pitfalls. Dengue’s latest album, Cannibal Courtship, is a glorious blast from start to finish.

Short primer for newcomers: Dengue Fever came about after a trip to Cambodia in the ’90s by keyboardist Ethan Holtzman, who became an enthusiast of the crazy, psychedelic music that flourished there in the pre-Pol Pot years. Returning to his native California with cassette tapes of this music, Holtzman and his guitarist brother Zac got a band together to play it. But the sound wasn’t complete until they found Cambodia-born singer Chhom Nimol, who had a gig at a joint called the Dragon House in the Little Phnom Penh area of Long Beach.

The title song, which kicks off the album, starts as a slow soul groove. But the music slowly builds up in volume and intensity and, by the time Nimol is shouting the refrain, “Be my sacrificial lamb!” listeners know this album is going to a wild ride.

The next tune, “Cement Slippers,” is a funny dialogue song between Nimol and Zac Holtzman that reminds me of “Tiger Phone Card” on Dengue’s previous studio effort, Venus on Earth. “My girlfriend loves everything at the beach/Except the water, the sand, and the sun,” Holtzman sings. Nimol responds, “My boyfriend loves everything about me except the endless hours of therapy.”

THAT'S A REAL FARFISA
Dengue in Santa Fe 2007
But the best part of this song is a maniacal, it, sax solo by horn man David Ralicke. Nimol reverts to her native tongue, Khmer, in the following song, the slow-moving, exotic “Uku.” Ethan Holtzman’s Farfisa organ shines on this one.


Actually, I wish the song “2012 (Bury Our Heads)” was sung in Khmer or some other language I don’t understand. I think the group is actually making fun of the New Age-y reading of ancient Maya prophecies that next year will bring the end of the world. After the recent “rapture” idiocy, I’m getting tired of this doomsday crap. But the song is a decent little rocker, so not all is lost.

A better topical tune is “Family Business,” which is about a girl caught up in some weapon-merchant business — it sounds like a Nicolas Cage movie in the making. The instrumental “Kiss of the Bufo Alvarius” reminds me of Henry Mancini’s score for the early ’60s John Wayne flick Hatari. I can’t listen to it without images of rhinos chasing jeeps haunting my brain.

Cannibal Courtship will probably induce lots of crazy visions for listeners.

Also recommended:


*Dengue Fever Presents Electric Cambodia. Had Mick, Keith, and the boys ever released a compilation called “The Rolling Stones Presents Chicago Blues Favorites,” it would have been to them what this collection is to Dengue Fever. The music here represents the basic DNA of the band.

Electric Cambodia, released last year, contains 14 Cambodian rockers from the late ’60s and early ’70s. The sound is lo-fi, because the original recordings — as well as the original artists — were destroyed by the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime that ruled that country in the mid-to-late ’70s. The only surviving recordings were on old cassette tapes kept and hidden by fans.

But you have to love the basic sound of the electric organ playing off the fuzzy guitars (sometimes straying off into the same cosmic territory Carlos Santana pioneered) and the singers who seamlessly bring together Cambodian folk melodies, Asian pop, and American rock ’n’ soul of the ’60s.

All but two of the selections here are by the three biggest stars of Cambodian rock — female singers Pan Ron and Ros Serey Sothea and a man named Sinn Sisamouth, who was such a super-stud, he recorded duets with both Ron and Sothea. “Jasmine Girl,” a Sisamouth/Ron duet, is a soft romantic tune that starts off sounding almost like an Asian bossa nova.

A couple of these songs were covered by Dengue Fever on its first album in 2003. There’s the slinky, sexy “Flowers in the Pond” by Sothea (Dengue did a slower version, just calling it “Flowers,” on its own album). And even better is “Shave Your Beard,” another Sothea song.

“Snaeha” has a melody you might recognize. Sung by Ron, it’s a Khmer version of the old Cher hit “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).”

This album is available from the usual online places. And if you like these old songs, let me also recommend the Cambodian Rocks series, currently available on the Khmer Rocks label. At least three of the four volumes are available from Amazon at reasonable prices.

TERRELL'S TUNEUP: Happy Birthday, Old Man Zimmerman!

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican
May 20, 2011



Bob Dylan turns 70 years old on Tuesday, May 24.

Seventy years old.

I’m not going to gush here about what Old Man Zimmerman’s music has meant to me — how hearing the riddle-ridden, six-minute “Like a Rolling Stone” and The Byrds’ version of “Mr. Tambourine Man” on AM radio in Oklahoma in 1965 was like hearing the call of oracles; how hearing him sing “Girl From the North Country” with Johnny Cash in 1969 filled me with optimism for a divided nation; how the bartender used to always play “Baby Let Me Follow You Down” by Bob Dylan and The Band every Sunday at the end of my set when I used to play in a local bar called Faces in the late ’70s; how spooky it felt the time I walked into the old Lincoln County courthouse and someone was playing an instrumental song from Dylan’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid soundtrack; how I laughed when Dylan had to cut short a show in Albuquerque because dozens of teenagers, including my daughter, spontaneously joined him onstage to help him with the chorus, “Everybody must get stoned.”

Naw, I’m not going to get into all that.

I’m just going to say happy birthday, Bob, and share my list of a dozen of my favorite Dylan covers by a whole mess of artists who surely have their own Dylan stories to tell.

The Dylan dozen: my favorite Bob covers

1. “Blind Willie McTell” by The Band. This is one of Dylan’s greatest tunes. A wise critic once wrote that it’s “one of those weird Dylan tunes that, a listener might suspect, contains the entire mystery of America secretly encoded in its lyrics.” Originally recorded for his 1983 Infidels album (and left off, perhaps because it didn’t fit the level of mediocrity Dylan was shooting for with that record), it wasn’t released until his first Bootleg Series box set in 1991. Three years later it appeared on The Band’s first album without Robbie Robertson, Jericho. New Orleans blues great “Champion” Jack Dupree sat in on piano while Levon Helm and Rick Danko shared lead vocals.

2. “Every Grain of Sand” by Giant Sand. Dylan released a higher percentage of crap in the ’80s than he did in any other decade. But there were some jewels among the garbage, and this song, from his 1981 album Shot of Love, is one of them. Howe Gelb and his Arizona cohorts are known for getting goofy, but here, backed by the band Poi Dog Pondering, Howe played it straight with this near-8-minute gospel-tinged opus, and it’s nothing short of soulful.

3. “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” by The Byrds. Dylan covers made up a huge chunk of the early Byrds’ repertoire. Their first hit was an abbreviated version of “Mr. Tambourine Man.” And their version of “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” is the definitive version. But their greatest Dylan song was “Baby Blue.” They did a jangly folk-rock version in the early days, but they got it right with the slow, mournful take on their unjustly overlooked Clarence White-era 1969 album The Ballad of Easy Rider. (Runners-up on this song: 13th Floor Elevators, Them.)

4. “Stepchild” by Solomon Burke. “Anything you ask, I’m willin’, I just can’t beat Bob Dylan,” Burke ad-libs in this song on the late soul giant’s 2002 masterpiece Don’t Give Up On Me. I bet Dylan disagrees. This Dylan blues rarity never appeared on any of his own releases.

BILLY'S HEADSTONE
5. “Billy 1” by Los Lobos. This song, originally on Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, becomes a drunken cantina stomp in the hands of David Hidalgo and the boys. You can find it on another soundtrack album, the I’m Not There soundtrack, which is full of fine Dylan covers. This track is a good companion for “Señor (Tales of Yankee Power),” another Mexican-marinated song on that soundtrack, performed by Willie Nelson and Calexico.

6. “Absolutely Sweet Marie” by Jason and The Scorchers. This is country rock with an emphasis on the rock. A close runner-up is C.J. Chenier’s zydeco-flavored take on this song on Blues on Blonde on Blonde.

7. “I Pity the Poor Immigrant” by Richie Havens. Backed by a sweet steel guitar, Havens pours his guts into this song. Nobody, including Dylan, ever did it better. It’s on the long-out-of-print album Richard P. Havens, 1983 (which was actually released in 1969.)

8. “Saved” by The Mighty Clouds of Joy. I didn’t appreciate Dylan’s much-reviled late ’70s-early ’80s “born again” era until I heard the excellent 2003 compilation Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan. The Clouds’ contribution is probably the most energetic track on the album.

9. “Like a Rolling Stone” by Johnny Thunders and Wayne Kramer. Ex-New York Dolls Thunders teamed up with former MC5 member Kramer (who was fresh out of prison on a drug rap) to form a punk-rock supergroup. They made this Dylan classic bleed. Runner-up: the version by Drive-By Truckers.

10. “Lily, Rosemary and The Jack of Hearts” by Mary Lee’s Corvette. Back in 2002, this New York roots-rock band performed all the songs from Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks from start to finish and released it as a CD. This 10-minute romp captures the spirit of the original. On the first verse singer Mary Lee Kortes let a drunken audience member do a bad Dylan impersonation. She wisely took back the mike.

11. “My Back Pages” by The Magokoro Brothers. Yes, Dylan is big in Japan. This tune, sung in Japanese, is from the Masked and Anonymous soundtrack.

12. “Wallflower” by Doug Sahm. This country waltz is a highlight from the 1973 country-rock classic Doug Sahm and Band. Sir Doug is joined by Dr. John on organ, David Bromberg on dobro, and Dylan himself on harmony vocals and lead guitar.

Oh, did I mention that this is a baker’s dozen?

13. “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix. This one’s so obvious I almost didn’t list it. Dylan liked Hendrix’s version better than his own. I do too.

* My own Dylan birthday tribute: Hear some of the music mentioned above and more. A whole lotta Bob! 10 p.m. Sunday night on Terrell’s Sound World, Santa Fe public radio, KSFR-FM 101.1 and streaming live at www.ksfr.org

UPDATE: My former colleague Jason, who's even more learned in Giant Sandlore than I am, pointed out that it's the group Poi Dog Pondering backing Howe Gelb on "Every Grain of sand." So I added that above.

Tuvan Group's Instruments Stolen In Albuquerque



How's this for western hospitality. Some cowardly prick (or pricks) in Albuquerque smashed into the van being used by the band Alash -- Tuvan throat singers in town for the Festival of Asian Cultures. The thief or thieves stole instruments, passports and costumes. This happened on Sunday.

Here's from the group's website:

Alash's instruments and costumes were stolen in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Sunday, May 16, just before the band was to appear at the Festival of Asian Cultures. Some of their passports, visas, and clothes were also taken. The missing instruments are all handmade, and some are quite old. Although devastated by the loss, the group performed at the Festival, using only their voices. One fan wrote of the performance, "This was one of the most amazing moments in my life. These men, the depth of the talent, were inspiring."


Despite their successful performance at the Festival, the band needs instruments to continue their tour. And authentic Tuvan instruments are hard to come by outside of Tuva. Luckily, a friend and supporter in the U.S. has a few to lend. So Alash will be able to make all their concert dates, albeit with a few changes to the repertoire. The musicians are taking it in stride. Sean Quirk, their manager and interpreter says, "We can use this as an opportunity to push our creativity."


Anyone who wants to help can contact the group at alashensemble@gmail.com or the webmaster at jbb@kovitzsystems.net.

Here's a story in the Albuquerque Journal.

And here's Alash in action in Texas a few years ago.

TERRELL'S TUNEUP: Farmageddon is Upon Us!

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican
 May 13, 2011


One of my favorite record companies — one that I hadn’t even heard of until a few weeks ago — came into being because a music fan in Montana got sick of having to drive hundreds of miles just to see the bands he liked.


Farmageddon Records is the brainchild of Darren Dorlarque, a Bozeman guy who loves alt-country, “underground” country, whatever you call it (just please don’t call it “Americana”) and took it upon himself to start booking shows in Big Sky Country for bands he liked. There were some quasi-famous folks like Wayne “The Train” Hancock, but mostly they were artists that few had ever heard of. With a growing stable of under-appreciated 21st-century hillbilly singers from all over the country, a record company seemed like the next logical step. And thus, Farmageddon was born.

A wonderful introduction to the Farmageddon universe is a new compilation called Danielle Colby Presents the Music of Farmageddon Records. Fans of the History Channel show American Pickers should recognize Colby. She runs the Antique Archaeology store in the series, which features a couple of her friends going around the country  finding antiques and collectibles. She’s also a former roller-derby girl and a burlesque dancer, but that’s another story. The important thing is she has great taste in music.

Like lots of the independent labels I love, there’s a family feel with Dorlarque’s rogues’ gallery. Check the credits and you’ll see members of various Farmageddon bands playing on one another’s tracks.

Much of the music on the compilation could be classified as country punk. There’s The Goddamn Gallows from Michigan, whose “Broken Man” features a twitchy repeated blues lick and distorted vocals. High Lonesome, a Milwaukee band, does a fierce minor-key stomper called “Headhunter.” Black-Eyed Vermillion, from Austin, almost reminded  me of The Waco Brothers with the sing-along chorus on their song  “Fare Thee Long.” But frontman Gary Lindsey’s vocal chords are far more shredded than Waco’s Jon Langford’s ever will be.

There is also lots of good retro-style country here. Jayke Orvis sings a snazzy little tune called “Thunderbolts and Lightning” that has a rockabilly rhythm (and a cool doghouse bass) as well as a banjo. Orvis, for the record, was the very first to record a record for Farmageddon.

Walker & The Texas Dangers, who indeed hail from the Lone Star State, have obviously listened to a lot of Wayne the Train. Their song “Love My Baby” contains the lyrics “No, we don’t make love, we don’t call it that/It’s such a euphemism for a violent act.” Meanwhile, “Delia Rose,” by a Kansas group called The Calamity Cubes, has a Dixieland feel with a muted trumpet and banjo.

Of the 14 artists on this collection, I was familiar with only one. That’s Graham Lindsey, not to be confused with Sen. Lindsey Graham. This one’s a country-flavored singer-songwriter from Wisconsin. I reviewed his first solo record, Famous Anonymous Wilderness, in this column in 2004.

As a pre-teen Lindsey was a member of a grade-school punk rockers called Old Skull, which somehow got a recording contract. They were great, if your idea of great is a bunch of 9-year-olds screaming about the C.I.A. Lindsey is much better as a solo artist. His song here, “Big Dark World of Hate and Lies” is stripped-down country — fiddle, bass, and acoustic guitar. It sounds like some long-lost Hank Williams tune.

Lindsey also is a member of The Perreze Farm, which does a catchy little fiddle-driven tune called “Lay Me Down.”

But for my money, the star of this record is a singer named  Rachel Brooke. On the compilation, she does a rocking tune called “Mean Kind of Blues” which sounds like classic outlaw country — I can easily imagine Waylon Jennings doing this song — except for the addition of loud, distorted guitars that add a weird counterpoint to Brooke’s yodeling.


Brooke is kind of like the Wednesday Addams of country music. Her voice is sweet, almost cute. On most songs, the accompaniment is spare and simple — mostly just her guitar. But listen to the lyrics on some of the songs on her recently released Farmageddon album Down in the Barnyard, and you’ll realize she’s got a twisted, evil side.

The song  “The Barnyard” is the tale of a jealous, murderous lass who tells in graphic detail how she takes revenge on her boyfriend and best friend. Then there’s “Me and Rose Connelly.” Fans of old murder ballads will recognize Rose’s name as the tragic victim of the song “Down in the Willow Garden.” That song is told from the perspective of the murderer. Brooke sings it as a girlhood friend of the victim.

Even creepier is “The Legend of Morrow Road,” a haunting, seven-minute song done as an acoustic dirge with fake record scratches. It’s the story, apparently derived from a Michigan folk tale, of a woman who gets pregnant by a man (not her husband) and then disappears without a trace — except her ghost is occasionally seen down on Morrow Road.

So You Don't Think They Do Anything Worthwhile in Washington, D.C.?

Then you're WRONG

The Library of Congress has just launched what they are calling The National Jukebox, which, as The Washington Post explains "allows listeners to stream a vast archive of more than 10,000 pre-1925 recordings of music, speeches, poetry and comedy. Much of it hasn’t been widely available since WWI."

You can find it HERE.


You can hear cool scratchy recordings of Al Jolson, Enrico Caruso, old jazz recordings, opera, great old crooners, "Crocodile Isle" by Billy Murray, Bob Roberts 1912 version of "Ragtime Cowboy Joe," "Red Hot Mama" by Coon Sanders & The original Nighthawk Orchestra and thousands more.

You can create playlists and share them on Facebook, etc. (I'll take advantage of that when I get off work tonight.)

And here's a tantalizing tidbit: There's actually a disclaimer regarding offensive recordings.
These selections are presented as part of the record of the past. They are historical documents which reflect the attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Library of Congress does not endorse the views expressed in these recordings, which may contain content offensive to users.
That's probably due to some of the overtly racist songs recorded back in the early part of the past century. However I checked and some of the more offensive tunes, like the ones I wrote about in my music column a few years ago, aren't there. But some others made the cut, such as "Pickaninny Polka" by Charles P. Lowe.

At least they don't have "Kung Fu Fighting"

One little technical glitch: I tried to copy the embed code on a couple of songs to inclunde here, but it wouldn't let me copy. Hope they clear that up. I'm going to have some fun with this.

eMUSIC MAY

* The Best Of 1954-60 by Hylo Brown & The Timberliners. He never got to be as well known as his former bandmates Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, but Frank "Hylo" Brown is a bluegrass titan.

Brown got his nickname because of his vocal range -- he could sing high or low. His first hit was a cry-in-your moonshine bluegrass waltz  "Lost to a Stranger," (included here) recorded in 1954. That got him a recording contract with Capitol Records.

Three years he hooked up with Flatt & Scruggs. Then for awhile, Hylo Brown & The Timberliners became basically a B-Squad touring unit for Flatt & Scruggs for several years.

While the high-and-lonesome is his foundation, this collection shows that he could slip the surly bonds of bluegrass. A couple of songs here, featuring The Jordanaires on background vocals, show evidence of the early "Nashville Sound." His song "Stone Wall Around Your Heart" has an electric guitar solo, though I don't think anyone would argue that it's not pure hillbilly.

My favorite tracks here are "In the Clay Beneath the Tomb," about a guy who finds the grave of his sweetheart and "Get Lost, You Wolf"  in whih a country Romeo gets his comeuppance.


Cajun Fais Do-Do. Hitchhiking Flashback -- August 1975. I was just outside Lake Charles, La., thumbing my way to new Orleans. A beat-up old station wagon stops to give me a lift. I did a double-take. The driver looked so much like Doug Kershaw, it was frightening -- dark hair, dark eyes, long sideburns, wearing a straw cowboy hat bent to come down between the eyes and accent his long nose.

His car radio was blasting a local station playing Cajun music. I told him I liked it. He smiled and said, "This is nothing. You should have been at my house when I was growing up. Every Saturday night after dinner, the neighbors would come over. And my parents and my grandparents would go get their instruments. And they would BOOGIE!"

I bet it sounded a lot like this album. 

* No Time For Dreaming by Charles Bradley. Here's the latest album offering from the mighty Daptone label. Bradley is a late bloomer, but I like this flower. His voice is rough and gritty and more than a little world-weary. His band is a tight little group that seems to be well-versed in the records of Otis Redding and Al Green.

I reviewed this fine album in Tune-up a couple of weeks ago. You can read the whole thing HERE.


PLUS 

* Five tracks from The Day The Earth Met The Rocket From the Tombs. These are lo-fi live recordings by the classic Cleveland band that had future members of Pere Ubu and The Dead Boys as well as the late self-destructive punk icon Peter Laughner.

My initial batch of downloads include the Rocket take on "Sonic Reducer" (which later wold become the Dead Boys' best-known anthem), a cover of The Stooges' "Raw Power" and a near six-minute slow burner called "Ain't It Fun," which sounds like a lost Dead Moon treasure. (I don't think Fred and Tootie ever covered this one, but Guns 'n' Roses did.)

More on this album in next month's eMusic report.

* Six tracks from Sun Recordings by Carl Perkins. I was astonished to learn that I didn't have these rockabilly classics in any form -- except on an old cassette tape I found in a local bargain bin about 25 years ago. My favorites here are "Right String Baby (But Wrong Yo Yo)" and "Her Love Rubbed Off," which sounds even spookier than the version by The Cramps.

Steve Terrell is proud to report to the monthly Freeform American Roots Radio list

Radio Joe!

I've just become brothers-in-radio with Joe West, one of  my all-time favorite Santa Fe songwriters.

Joe's new show, The Intergalactic Honky Tonk Machine can be heard 1 a.m. (yes, that's a.m.!) Thursdays on KSFR . And if you're not a night owl, Joe is archiving his shows on his website.

Joe West & Mike the Can Man sing "Okie from Muskogee"
Joe West with Mike the Can Man at Frogfest '09
It's not just another music show. His first episode is a musical character profile of a singer named Dona Dylanschneider. Check it out.

In other Joe West news, he's got a new album coming out in June called Aberdeen, South Dakota. Joe says it's "my own personal "nod" to the memories, the relics and the debris of yesterday and was created using antiquated recording equipment and found thrift store instruments."

It'll be available on CD as well as cassette. (Get ready for the cassette revival!)

And there's more! Joe is following the Butch Hancock route. He'll be the special musical guest on rafting trips down the Chama River by Santa Fe Rafting. Joe will  be playing campfire concerts on these trips. (I still say that the best concert I ever went to was a Butch show one night during a Rio Grande raft trip. It was raining, so the concert was under a tarp held up by us in the audience.)

(I haven't posted my rafting photo with Butch in a couple of years, so check it out)

TERRELL'S TUNEUP: Go Rimbaud!

A version of this was published in The Santa Fe New Mexican
May 6, 2011


Just what the free world needs: another blues-rock band from Austin, Texas.

But Churchwood is different. To start with, instead of idolizing Stevie Ray Vaughn, this band names the late, great Captain Beefheart as its guiding spiritual light. No, Churchwood doesn’t exactly sound like the Captain on its new self-titled album. It just shares his ability to take the essence of primitive blues and mutate it into something new.

And the group doesn’t sound like all those trashy, lo-fi blues-punk groups — many of which I love — like the ones who populate Voodoo Rhythm’s roster. Churchwood is a little more refined, though it is still far from slick. For the record, the band doesn’t share many musical similarities with one of my favorite bluegrass punk bands, The Meat Purveyors, even though one of its guitarists, Bill Anderson, played in that group.

These guys are downright literate. Singer/ harmonica-honker Joe Doerr might sound like he spends every night chugging Budweisers in biker bars, but he’s a published poet and is a professor of English at St. Edward’s University in Austin. Churchwood’s literary bent is most obvious in the song “Rimbaud Diddley,” a tribute to Elias McDaniel and his famous beat as well as to the French Symbolist poet.

(There is rock ’n’ roll precedent here. Bob Dylan namechecked Rimbaud in the song “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go,” and Patti Smith began her career shouting “Go Rimbaud, go Rimbaud” on the song “Land” on her first album, Horses.)

And then on “Ulysses,” Churchwood cleverly mixes references to the hero of the Odyssey, the hard-drinking Civil War general, and James Joyce.

And wake up, fans of Hermann Hesse and Carlos Santana. There’s a song called “Abraxas.” This is a spoken-word piece with a bluesy backdrop and a beatnik vibe. Doerr recites, “I only speak in tongues now/ I wrangle serpents because they rankle me/ I do sleep well in the arms of dragons/Blind drunk on poison with the will to see.”

My favorite Churchwood song is “Car Crash,” despite its grim lyrics. The narrator prophesies and describes in detail his own death on some lonesome highway:

 “The road is wet and the hills are steep/I’ve miles to go before I sleep/A tractor trailer blows its horn at me/A stream of headlights makes it hard to see.”

But the music is so upbeat and rocking that you get the feeling it’s been a pretty fun joyride until the moment of impact.

Hear “Rimbaud Diddley”in its entirety on the latest exciting episode of The Big Enchilada podcast.

Also recommended:

* Kicking It With the Twits by The Hickoids. I never would have guessed that long-time Texas cowpunkers The Hickoids were Anglophiles. But they are, and this album, which has a Union Jack-themed album cover, consists of tunes from the British Invasion.

Actually from more than one British Invasion.

The liner notes of this CD (Note to MP3 generation: ask your parents what liner notes are) explain the weird trans-Atlantic musical ping-pong game between American and British rock ’n’ roll, from early blues and R&B to the Beatles era, West Coast psychedelia, British glam rock, and the rise of punk rock in New York and London.

“Our look and sound has always owed at least as much to England as it does to the United States,” The Hickoids declare, “so this is our own little tribute to the sexually deviant rockers of the British Isles.”

Come to think of it, singer Jeff Smith is known as “the thin white Duke of Hazzard.”

Among the selections here are songs by The Stones and The Who as well as by Mott the Hoople, Brian Eno, The Damned, Slade, The Move, and Elton John. Elton John? Why not. I like The Hickoid’s cover of “Bennie & The Jets,” with its steel guitar, better than Elton’s original. (And at least they avoided “Tiny Dancer.”)

The Hickoids did a great job of choosing at least slightly lesser-known songs from their English heroes. For instance, the Rolling Stones cover is “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?” It’s not exactly an obscurity — it was played on the radio all the time when I was in junior high — but not one overplayed on “oldies radio.” I like the tacky electric organ sound The Hickoids put on it.

The Hickoids add some subtle country guitar licks to The Who’s “Pictures of Lily,” Pete Townshend’s early ode to porn. Mott’s “Whizz Kid” is good and rocking. But I’d also like to hear a Hickoids version of “All the Way to Memphis.”

My only real complaint is that the album is just eight songs long. Come on, Hickoids, where are the covers of songs by The Animals, The Zombies, and — especially — The Fall? “Big New Prinz” with steel guitar would be a real treat. Maybe a “Twits Part 2” is in order.

By the way, both The Hickoids and Churchwood are on the Saustex Media label — as are cool bands like Piñata Protest and T. Tex Edwards & Out on Parole. Visit www.saustexmedia.com.

The Hickoids in Santa Fe: Synchronicity alert! I had just finished writing the above review when I checked my email and learned The Hickoids are coming here June 24. It’s their first time in Santa Fe. They play the Underground — that’s the basement of Evangelo’s — with Santa Fe’s beloved The Blood Drained Cows.
 

A Gentle Folk Song Marks a Historical Moment

The singer's name is Bob Cheevers. According to his website, his songs have been recorded by Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. In the late '60s he sang the theme song for a tv comedy called Love American Style.

Now Cheevers is giving some of his American love to the late Osama Bin Laden in a song called "The End of Bin."

It's a sturdy minor-key folk tune. Nice melody, but somehow I can't imagine Peter, Paul & Mary singing, "I hope his death was painful and slow ..."
