The first song I heard that was written and sung by Jason Isbell that knocked me on my ass was “Goddamn Lonely Love.” My old friend and then workmate Jesse Scott had been telling me for a while that I really needed to check out The Drive-By Truckers, Jesse has always had impeccable taste and she knows not only what I like but felt it would work on both of our channels. I believe her quote was, “Marrone, yes they are shitkickers and rockin’ but there are some songs here that you are gonna love.” Yep, once again Jesse couldn’t have been more correct. The Dirty South was getting ready to come out and we had an advance. I rarely listen to new albums in track order and cued “Goddamn” first. I’ve been a fan ever since of both DBT’s and Jason. “Danko/Manuel” from the same album sealed it. Years later his song “Elephant” brought me to my knees, as it will anyone touched by Cancer and after a single listen to “Weathervanes” I swear he’s still getting better. You will hear as much of the album as the DMCA will allow, as well as new things from: Massimo Faraò Trio, Love and Rockets, The Crushing Violets, Hiss Golden Messenger, Keaton Henson and Selwyn Birchwood. We also say goodbye to Blackie Onassis of Urge Overkill at the too young age of 57. I am taking a break for my 67th Birthday on June 20, I look at it as 37 years of bonus time. Thanks for listening.
