WEFT is playing some FUCKING COOL blues right now. Tune in.
It's this high energy, reverb drenched, stripped down, electric and acoustic boogie slide guitar stuff...if there was punk delta blues this would be it.
Oh hell. Just as I finish typing that they go into some boring BB King crap. I mean I love BB and all but that other stuff they were playing was Beautiful. Three songs worth. I'm going to have to call in and get a playlist.
I guess the first two songs were the Mississippi Sheiks, a band from the 20s and 30s recently reissued on an album called The Essential Mississippi Sheiks. Then he played a garage band calld Jawbone from an album called Dang Blues.
I'm so jealous that my parents are going to Oxford, Mississippi this week and they're stopping in Clarksdale and Memphis and Vicksburg. Sadly I'd have to miss our awesome political performance at Saturday's Clamor Music Festival and my date with cassiopia this week if I went to Mississippi with them.
