Eugene Chadbourne

July 20, 2006

Vermin of the Blues

The good doctor joins forces with one Evan Johns and his H-Bombs for a rollicking country-tinged rock and blues album. This is Chadbourne at his most accessible; he is being backed by a battle-hardened Texas bar band led by hot-shit guitarist Johns. Late eighties US foreign policy is lampooned via Johnny Cash, Bo Diddley and others. Eugene also does one of the most straightforward (albiet a little creaky) covers of his career (My Mother’s Eye’s), with some beautiful Dobro work. Also the mystery of the Rake is demonstrated on some podunk country radio program with callers responding. Hilarious fun.

Obey the Rake!
