Jude Davison – Head Bone Gumbo (2012)

Posted by on December 11, 2012 with No Commentsas

Compared to his most recent previous releases, which were both well received and eclectic, “Head Bone Gumbo” is a more straightforward prospect; although it confounds expectations from the very start. It races out of the starting blocks with the drink and drug fueled rockabilly of “Top of the Hill” leading one to imagine that there’s an album of Jason and the Scorchers-like rock and roll intensity coming up. An expectation that immediately has the legs cut from under it with the bluesy-jazz shuffle of “Death of a Little Bird”.And there are some great songs; the light sounding “How Long Baby, Baby How Long” is an intricate heartbreak song worthy of Townes Van Zandt (“Love is a strange country full of danger and shame / Can’t buy a decent map ’cause they keep changing the names / If you ain’t on Lonely Street you’re languishing on Anguish row”). This is followed up with the joyful “Eliza Lou”, sounding like something Steve Earle would lay down in his happier moments (“Eliza Lou Eliza Lou / Prettiest eyes of china blue / New yellow dress and fine red shoes / Eliza Lou Eliza Lou”).
