Local Review: The Legendary Porch Pounders – A Little Gift: Authorized Bootleg
Local Music Reviews
LPP = Muddy Waters + Bob Dylan
I swore off drinking yesterday, but halfway through the emotionally exhausting second track, “Up for Days,” I had one leg swung back up on the wagon. Dan Weldon’s lyrics are more folk-poetic than would traditionally accompany many of LPP’s Delta blues tunes, but their song structures range anywhere from there to roots to almost Hank Williams country. Bad Brad Wheeler’s harmonica moans flesh out Weldon’s skeleton picks and strums, nearly voices themselves. Back from a successful SXSW stint with Bill Kirchen, you’ll find these boys nursing in Ogden’s Brewskies almost seven days a week.
