“Strippers, Down & Outs, & Other Ne’er-Do-Wells”
[Review in PluggedIn Brighton, published September 26, 2019 by Chris Hibberd]
Strange Pictures? What does it mean? Half remembered memories of what you thought you saw. Did you? The new release from Caaw opens a window into a world of bourbon-soaked memories with jazz-inflected avant-garde music playing and burbling in the background. Captain Beefheart and Tom Waits are having a tussle over a perfume filled top hat whilst Dr John watches on from the bayou distractedly.
“Quirky, whimsical, melodic lines in the tradition of great storytellers, French Quarter benders, trickster music, broken glass drunken poetry of lovers and thieves…” – Margaret Garrett (Mr. Airplane Man)
