Doc Martian’s Lounge – Deconstruction of the Blues

This review/blog reminds me of the good ole days when Cream and Circus and Crawdaddy reigned supreme, back when Rolling Stone was a music paper. Back then music reviews had some heft and lots of personality, sometimes the reviewer was as much a part of the review as the music (which could be a good or bad thing depending on the reviewer). If you have a few minutes, take a look: Doc Martian’s Lounge.

    Ah yes, definitely a screed for graying eminences and magnificent anachronisms. What’s really poignant about it, though, is that over the years I have watched “deconstruction” leeched of all its technical specificities and reduced to the level of mere jargon, like an old friend whose drinking led to liver problems. I blame the internet. But a favorable review is a favorable review, and he did make the connection between “Whites Off Earth Now” and “Sing in my Meadow,” which has been waiting some time to be made in print.

    One of those rare cases of the obvious going unstated, I guess.
