Johnny Dowd: Wrong Side Of Memphis
Buy! - (Checkered Past)
This 49-year-old moving-truck operator from Ithaca, NY upholds the dark side of American folk tradition on his powerfully unsettling debut album. Dowd writes harrowing tales of murder, mayhem and general depravity shrouded in a dark pessimism, and delivered with a creepy, noirish lo-fi sound that's steeped in old-time country, blues and folk. 1/15/1998 - Don Yates
