CD Reviews

Catham Jack strikes Reverie into the ideals of many a-promis
Bodhidarma | 04/19/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Well, it's not every day you stumble across not only on an artist such as Childish but an album such as this. Billy Childish (1959-) has left an obscure and weathered footprint on the face of culture. Besides this recording has done many full-length records, books, and produced a great many paintings. This album highlights aspects of 40s era blues and timeless folk. Its opening track also resounds free-form jazz (with an accordian seconded to none.) Childish gives all he has into everything he does, and this is a fine example, though I now realize credit must be given where it is due, and this record is not by Childish exclusively but with his group The Black Hands. The only other records I know of by the black hands is one entitled "Captain Calypo's Hoodoo Party" and "Live in the Netherlands" but he has a vast catacomb of works with groups including Thee Milkshakes, Thee Headcoats, The Mighty Ceasers, recordings with fellow musican/poet Sexton Ming, and a lucrative solo career."
