I've seen good men going wrong
I've seen bad ones get it right
As that river rolls along
I'll be stepping out tonight ...
As of 2011 this blog is about american old timey and roots musics as they pertain to having a fine night out in Ireland. Gigs, new releases, old ideas, songs and so on. Before that it was mostly about whatever I was interested in at the time.
I am endeavouring to further the spread of Enlightenment through Music, Images, Words, etc that are well, Enlightening. If you own any of this enlightenment, and want to keep it for yourself, or your own site, then Feel Free to Enlighten me about that and I will remove the offending Inspiration as Quickly as is Humanly Possible. Which is Pretty Damn Quick most evenings, and ASAP at weekends.

Take care, take a leak, get laid, get a haircut trek on down to your general store, tell them the Man at The Door said, we gotta do it, we gotta get it done .. before ... we gotta buy, we gotta buy, we gotta buy what we're needing some of that EVIL Rock'N'Roll.
32-20 Blues by Robert Johnson. Who owns this stuff these days? I gotta complete recordings on PLATCD 278 for five quid. Sacriledge. Go get.
Sam Hall by the Sumner Brothers who I've mentioned before ONLY NOW they have a CD (at CD Baby) More of which later. (Mine's on order). These guys are the future of Rock'n'Roll. Damn Your Eyes.
Neighbors MP3 by Swank who wil do you right if you ever got to see them grab it with both hands and order up two Bowls of Chilli. You Be daffy, I'll be Dilly get down to their Myspace site and listen To HEY JEB!! (download it even). Oh and about this track, Neighbors. They're Canadians, right. SAY NO MORE.
Rusty Cage MP3 by Johnny Cash from Unchained (at Amazon.co.uk). This is slowly becoming one of my favourite Cash albums. I had to get past the mix and into the music, but it's all there stingin where you least expect it. Rusty Cage, tho' ... well you hear it coming a mile off.

Love Like This by The Drive By Truckers. This is some of the most poignant sharply observed lifescapes I ever heard. It's been a tough month and this is part of the reason. Gird Your Loins.
Sweet Olive Tree By Langhorne Slim is my other fave track right. As the recording shows. At the end someone says "Fuck! That was ..." well we don't know what they thought. But by that time we already agree. This is your salvation.
There. My job is done. Halloween is over. The Door is officially open for business. Get those Souls moving y'all.
