On March 21, 2002, Johnny Dowd hit the stage at 123 Pleasant Street, in Morgantown, West Virginia. The ink for the lyrics of his new album The Pawnbroker’s Wife was still wet and the set featured five tracks from that record.
Aided by Justin Asher on guitar and longtime collaborator Willie B on percussion Dowd poured his heart out and thanks to release of Live in Morgantown you get a front row seat. His wavering voice will freak out vocal coaches, but you will have a hard time finding another singer who sounds as honest as he does. Leave it to him to turn a song entitled I Love You into a Fifties doo-wop ditty from Hell.
Got uptight family members overstaying their welcome at dinner? Put on Jingle Bells and they will be off in a hurry, covering their ears. Fans of warts-and-all garage rock Americana about rocky relationships, war, getting even and murder will love it.
Johnny Dowd: guitar, vocals
Justin Asher: guitar, melodica, vocals
Willie B: drums, drum computer, bass pedals
Live in Morgantown is released on Mother Jinx Records. Buy it from his website.
“Imagine if Hank Williams had mutated into Captain Beefheart, acquiring a bunch of primitive electronic equipment along the way, and you’ll get some idea of where Johnny Dowd is at on Execute American Folklore. . . . Gloriously deviant.“
— Andy Gill, The Independent (London)
– HCTF reviews Execute American Folklore
Johnny Dowd (born March 29, 1948 in Fort Worth, Texas) is an American alternative country musician. Typical of his style are experimental, noisy breaks in his songs and strong gothic (in the sense of dark and gloomy) elements in the lyrics as well as in the music. There is also a strong undercurrent of black humor and the absurd in his work.
He currently resides in Ithaca, NY.
Although his early albums were most celebrated in the alternative country community, he has never quite fit into any particular genre.
