Johnny Dowd by The Mouthhole Band

A man named Johnny Dowd had a good idea, so we stole it. To raise money for his next album, living legend
Johnny Dowd offered a reward on a crowdfunding website:
for $1000 he would write a song about you.
The residents of The Mouthhole
Nashville’s weirdest house venue, wanted a Johnny Dowd song about us, but we are poor.
We decided – we should raise crowdfunding
to donate to Johnny Dowd’s crowdfunding and get a song made about The Mouthhole.And what would our offered reward be? We’ll make songs too. If you donate even $1 we will make a song about you.
So we did. You are now holding a collection of rewards. They were recorded quickly and efficiently in order to keep the flow (and there ended up being 36 of them).Each member of The Mouthhole Band rotated instruments for each song. Lyrics, with occasional exception, were written
by committee. We raised approximately $760 dollars. Johnny Dowd made us a song anyway, because he liked our idea that we stole from him.
He named the song “The Mouthhole”.
We named this album “Name Songs“.



Editors note: You can find Johnny’s Mouthhole song if you scroll down to  November 30, 2016 on his website.

Johnny Dowd: Live in Morgantown

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

“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.“

JOHNNY DOWD

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.
