Editorial Reviews

Give Scissormen's Ted Drozdowski and Matt Snow a guitar, a drum kit and an audience and they will do something you don t expect from summoning the ghosts of the Mississippi Delta and hill country to casting a psychedelic trance to standing on top of your table and using every glass, knife, fork, cell phone and dinner plate to play six-string slide and percussion. Scissormen's incomparable energy and playful spirit are
captured for the first time in BIG SHOES: Walking and Talking the Blues, a two-disc set featuring acclaimed roots music documentary film maker Robert Mugge's movie starring the band and a live audio disc recorded during the February 2010 filming at the historic Key Palace Theater in snowy Red Key, Indiana. The 90-minute feature DVD is a blend of concert film, road movie, blues history and state-of-the-genre report by the director of such classics as Gospel According to Al Green, Saxophone Colossus (starring Sonny Rollins), Deep Blues and
New Orleans Musicians in Exile. BIG SHOES: Walking and Talking the Blues debuted at the 2010 Starz Denver Film Festival and has screened aboard the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise, at the Gasparilla Film Festival in Tampa and at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.
The BIG SHOES CD is Scissormen s fifth album. Among the new songs debuted in the disc s 15 tracks are the movie s theme song ''Big Shoes,'' which Scissormen frontman Drozdowski describes as a ''blues protest number.'' The tune is also a musical journey, starting with basic country blues licks and traveling to a place were the sounds of Africa, the late Junior Kimbrough and Pink Floyd are equally at home. Another new entry is ''R.L. Burnside,'' a true story of a night Drozdowski spent with the musical mentor who inspired him to found the band 10 years ago performed as an electric country blues. And there s ''Delta Train,'' a ghost story set to a riveting Mississippi stomp. Drozdowski has been on the American blues scene for 30 years. His writing has appeared in Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Musician and dozens of other publications. He has also consulted on film projects including 2003 s ''Martin Scorsese Presents: The Blues'' PBS-TV series. All the while he
was an active musician and developed a stunning and unique command of slide guitar playing that straddles the provinces of Elmore James and jazz guitarist Sonny Sharrock, thrilling a broad demographic of fans who ve seen Scissormen perform anywhere from clubs, coffee shops and theaters to the stages of the Bonnaroo, Cognac Blues Passions and Memphis in May music festivals. A 70-minute concert CD plus famed roots music film maker Robert Mugge s 90-minute documentary DVD both in a single CD-sized package capture the contemporary live energy and deep American traditional music roots of Scissormen on tour.

I highly recommend Big Shoes,
As a fan of Scissormen I was excited to find this DVD/CD. Scissormens live performances are a blast so being able to cue up a DVD created by Robert Mugge
featuring Scissormen was something I had to have! If your into Bands that bring it 110% on every night, play raw Blues inspired music, then buy this! Robert
Mugge is a famous Documentary film maker and he certainly crafted another fine movie.
