Product Description

Fell a brand new heartache coming on? It's the master of internal disaster, Alejandro Escovedo back with a loaded deck of newly recorded songs for you listening pleasure. But be careful! Before you know it, this combination of new tunes and cover favoriteswith twist your guts into neat little knots and lwave you smiling on the outside, crying on the inside.

Amazon.com

When No Depression magazine declared Alejandro Escovedo "The Artist of the Decade," the decision must have baffled everyone except the handful of people who had actually listened to his records. On his three studio albums and 1998's triumphant live album, he blended violin, cello, and buzz-saw guitar to fashion an utterly distinctive chamber-punk sound. He needed such a sound to accommodate songs about the stillness and terror of those early morning hours when you can't hide from the "what's it all for?" questions. Bourbonitis Blues isn't as epochal as its predecessors because it has been cobbled together from three different sessions and offers only three new originals. But Escovedo's one-of-a-kind arrangements are as haunting as ever; his remakes of songs by Lou Reed, John Cale, Gun Club, Jimmie Rodgers, and Ian Hunter are revealing, and the three new numbers are very good indeed. Contributions are made by past and current members of the Mekons, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Jody Grind, and dB's. --Geoffrey Himes
