Hoosier Pete wrote, spoke, played, and recorded it (except for "I Can't Be Satisfied", written by McKinley Morganfield). All tracks recorded on a BlackBerry between February and May 2013. Warning: ultra low-fi.
Hoosier Pete wrote, spoke, played, and recorded it (except 4' 33", composed by John Cage). All tracks recorded on a Motorola Karma cell phone between May and September of 2010.
This is the first in a series of "field recordings" - essentially an aural sketchbook. Warning: ultra lo-fi.
Hoosier Pete wrote, played, recorded, and salted it. "Amazing Grace" (traditional) recorded by Dan Willems. From an upcoming release due to be finished sometime before hell freezes over.
"In St. Louis things didn't seem to be so good, and he got into a row with a hooker he picked up on Market Street who tried to roll him, so as a guy told him there were plenty jobs to be had in Louisville he began to beat his way east. By the time he got to New Albany it was hot as the hinges of hell; he'd had poor luck on hitches and his feet were swollen and blistered. He stood a long time looking into the swift brown current of the Ohio, too tired to go any further. He hated the idea of tramping around looking for a job. The river was the color of gingerbread; he started to think of the gingercookies Lizzie Green used to make in his mother's kitchen and he thought he was a damn fool to be bumming around like this. He'd go home and plant himself among the weeds, that's what he'd do."-- John Dos Passos, The 42nd Parallel
Hoosier Pete wrote & played it. Dan Willems recorded it. Elijah Pritchett poured some sugar on it. ("Dance of the Inhabitants of the Palace of King Philip XIV of Spain" written by John Fahey. "Prelude/Portland" recorded by Elijah Pritchett.)
This album is inspired by the Portland neighborhood of Louisville . . . and, of course, John Fahey.
