Eugene Chadbourne on Thursday 13th June 2019
'There are no bridges in folk songs because the peasants died building them' Eugene Chadbourne
Eugene is a complete one-off. Like really has to be seen to be believed.
On his compulsive own, Eugene Chadbourne (previously the guitarist and leader of Shockabilly) has spewed forth a ceaseless stream of records and cassettes (the latter on his own Parachute label) that easily represent the oddest version of country and folk music ever. While the notable left-winger's guitar playing is looser than clams, it harbours wildly unique energy. He also plays the electric rake. The North Carolinian is the master of several different voices, some of them deceptively sincere. Harsh, funny, irritating and packed with ideas, Chadbourne often suggests a politically correct Frank Zappa.
For fans of: Daniel Johnston, Captain Beefheart, Richard Dawson, Frank Zappa & Anything Weird and Wonderful.
