DEEP BLUES: BLUE CHARLiE - I'M GONNA KiLL THAT HEN


Truth.

“…authenticity without evolution isn’t authenticity, but mimicry. And not terribly authentic or interesting at all.” -Ted Drozdowski

And, of course, that is what all of this is — all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs — that song, endlesly reincarnated — born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket ’88’, that Buick 6 — same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness.”
— Nick Tosches, Where Dead Voices Gather

“My songs, they have just the one chord, there’s none of that fancy stuff you hear now, with lots of chords in one song. If I find another chord
I leave it for another song.”
-Junior Kimbrough
