After letting the blues linger on life support as a museum piece by
humorless musicological geeks or mutated into a beer commercial soundtrack
by whiter-than-Pat Boone guitar zeroes, it's time for weirdos to reclaim
a genre of music that should be full of piss and vinegar, sex and violence.
To that aim, Dogfingers has convinced 16 strange and diverse artists
to reinterpret (or in some cases deconstruct) Delta blues classics
by artists ranging from Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson to Bukka White
Blind Joe Reynolds. The results, we're happy to say, are fun, strange and
dangerous. With a lineup including Dogfingers stalwarts Pseudo Buddha
Satan along with troublemakers Immortal Lee County Killers,
The Heroine Shieks, Porch Ghouls, The Crack Pipes, White Hassle, Double
Clutch, Viva Maxitone, Rev. Vince Anderson, Memphis Playboys, Crab
Lady, Loraxx, The Starkweathers, Los Mescaleros and Rube Waddell, you
know the results will be anything but conventional.
