Seasick Steve’s debut release (2004). He was raised in Oakland and spent many years as a hobo, hoppin’ trains, living outside (stories on #4 & #8). He’s been playing for years and produced Modest Mouse’s debut!! He plays dirty, greasy, houserockin’, gut-bucket blues. Seasick on gtr and vcls w/ Sweden’s Jo Husmo on bass and Kai Christoffersen on drums. Killer stuff all the way through. Play any. FCC #7.

*My Favorites*: All of ‘em.

1. (4:03) Mid. Marchin’ beat, crunchy gtr, vcl fx, big cymbal strikes.
2. (3:34) Mid. Houserockin’ beat, killer drums, back vcls.
3. (2:59) Mid. Back-porchy w/ jaw harp, sparse gtr, brushes.
4. (5:44) Story on how to jump trains, being in jail, how to use food stamps.
5. (4:15) Mid. Kinda R.L. Burnside, houserockin’ trancey.
6. (3:42) Slow / Mid. Sparse, kinda quiet, love theme.
7. (5:12) Mid. FCC ‘shit’. Staccato beat.
8. (7:05) Story on how to live outside and finding food, getting work.
9. (4:41) Mid / Fast. Drivin’ back-porch w/ harmonica. Killer.
10. (3:39) Mid. Laid back march, killer gtr, grunts.
11. (4:15) Slow / Mid. Low-down blues, sparse.
12. (4:18) Mid. More houserockin’ w/ big drums, back vcls.
13. (10:47) Two songs 1. (10:47 to 6:50) Slow / Mid. Mellow w/ outbursts. 2. (6:18 to 0:00) Slow / Mid. Moaner get rockin' about jumpin’ a train.
