I'm sure this guy just sang "God never gave me a shoulder blade" which is an awful sounding disability, I haven't got a clue how he's playing guitar and that with a floppy arm but he certainly deserves our respect for it. Anyway Larry Jon Wilson is his name, I'm not familiar with him but apparently he's been recording for decades, he's on Drag City and it's immediately apparent he's got a bit of a Johnny Cash thing going on with his deep baritone and sparse country arrangements. Maybe a bit of Leonard Cohen, early solo Mark Lanegan or Smog.. This eponymous effort sounds cool from what I've been able to hear of it on this busy Price Slice Wednesday.
