Product Notes

A Bloody Compilation of great American singer/songwriters singing original songs about Murder, Death and Prison. Review from 'Guitar Player' mag: Murder Death and Prison This stark, minimalist collection of rebellious acoustic troubadours singing about the travails of life of the wrong side of the tracks won't exactly thrill GP readers looking for Kaki King- or Tommy Emmanual- inspired flat-top histrionics. While the artists- which include Eric Wolfson, Ron Pubcrawler, Dave Dalton, Jeff Crane, and Lewis the Swan- have more in common with Woody Guthrie than Guthrie Govan, the atmosphere they conjure absolutely convey desperation, loss and blind, angry craziness. Although I'm not typically a great fan of singer/..songwriter fare, these tortured bastards really mean it man, and they've tossed little quirks in each tune- distorted textures, moody keyboards, steel guitars and so on- to keep your ears tingling. And don't miss former GP editor Darrin Fox's edgy slide performance on "Borstal Boys"- which he recorded direct into his Mac Powerbook's less-..than-..audiophile 1/8" output. It's that kind of brutish, "make-do" attitude that transforms this compilation into something beautifully flawed and disturbingly real.-Michael Molenda.
