Wino & Conny Ochs = Townes Van Zandt + acoustic Nirvana – Black Label Conspiracy

Scotty "Wino" Weinrich, known in doom rock circles, and German singer/songwriter Conny Ochs, combine to create a raw, rootsy conspiratorial collaboration, which saw their tour with Black Label Society here earlier this year. It’s a folk duo that isn’t pretty-fied, is rough around the edges, even though they meld seamlessly there is the sense of being kicked around by experience. The song “Drain” provides their interpretation of the toll it takes to try to achieve any level of freedom, even artistic, but there’s still a sense of exhilaration in the effort. –Stakerized!
