Seen him live a few times, he's a funny chap.
and saw him live around the time that was released and he was ace. Not followed him much since. Will maybe look him up.
Talkin' Honky Blues might just be a masterpiece. Square is fabulous. Situation is dreadful. I'd forgotten how much I love this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8FlMdsJEmg
..after Secret House Against the World (which was no bad record) but recently I checked out the latest album 20 Odd Years and completely fell for this song -
20 odd years is also hit and miss but has some great stuff on it. Would like to see the man live again soon for sure.
and he was great as ever... hopefully he'll come back soon
bike for three!
even though his recent output has been a bit spotty. Saw him live at the Jazz Cafe a few years ago, was absolutely hilarious. Talkin' Honky Blues is a classic.
His recordings are great but his live shows are amazing. He has to be one of the greatest storytellers. His two spoken word sets at Truck a few years back were some of the most entertaining things I've heard. Even his one line comments/jokes at the London show I went to last year were enough to send the audience into hysterics.
One of the greatest artists on the planet and also seems like a really nice guy.
