Burnside Album Details
Dowd, Johnny, A Drunkard's Masterpiece
Four musicians. Eight tracks. Eight microphones. Three days. Johnny Dowd is back. The songs, welded and mangled together, fondle every style from metal/weird country to jazz to instrumental funk. "I wanted to do an album that was a combination of variety show and soul revue. In the mix of styles, you can see my take on American music. Also, by running the songs together rather than having silence between them, I was trying to make the album as close as possible to our live show," says Dowd. The band which includes Willie B (drums and bass pedals), Michael Stark (keyboards), and the official return of Kim Sherwood-Caso (vocals).
