Hard to believe this song is 13 years old now. I wrote it when I was living in Washington, D.C., and listening to a lot of Ray Davis’s Bluegrass Country on WAMU. (This is before the 2000 election debacle happened and WAMU decided to take Bluegrass Country off the air and replace it with a couple extra hours of All Things Considered. WTF WAMU.) (more…)
If Yo La Tengo can do it on WFMU, I’m gonna do it here. Check out my version of “You Can Have It All,” from their album And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out.
This song was written in the weeks after the firebombing and murder of seven members of the Dawson family in East Baltimore. From the 2004 self-titled EP.
Eventually, I profiled one of the Baltimore City laborers who puts the boards up on Baltimore’s vacant homes.
Inspired by, but not really having much to do with, Louie’s Bookstore and Cafe.
