8/10 Li'l Biz 18 December 2009
Bonny Billy is up to his old tricks again, rejuvenating the extensive back catalog via alternative styles and musicians. In this case the bonny one teams up with The Picket Line, a youthful and highly skilled group of bluegrass players. 'Funtown Comedown' is probably the best Oldham album title I can remember and besides his covers album with the members of Tortoise, this is sounding like the best of his collaborative efforts. The Picket Line bring youthful enthusiasm and vigor to a bunch of classic Oldham cuts with 'May it always be', 'Wolf among men' and 'Idle hands are the devil's playthings' sounding particularly sweet. All recorded live at 'Funtown' (not just a place but a state of mind), these reworking's really benefit from a fresh lick of bluegrass paint. Certain revisiting of previous works have fallen flat for me but, in the case of 'Funtown' William Old Ham is on to winner. Long live the confederacy!
