Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Spanish Moon, Baton Rouge, LA

Thunderclap, gypsy medicine show, feral lullaby and brimstone rage. No one is master of his weirdness like Will Oldham. One is not sure whether to surrender or flee from it, and you get the sense that he might feel that way too.

And if I'm not mistaken, that was Jim White of the Dirty Three on drums (I never did get a good picture) and if so, I scream a tiny music nerd scream.


  1. I just used google to see what J. White looks like. It was definitely him. Good eye (& ears) AVC.

  2. I'm not quite that dialed in, I'm afraid: I thought he said that was his name and have played together before on the exquisite "Get on Jolly" album
