Hipbone Slim and the Knee Tremblers. Have Knees, Will Tremble. This provided the soundtrack to tonight's editing of the cannibal manuscript. It was fitting, to say the least.
I often listen to loud music when I write and edit. There are times when the music fits the scene I'm writing, and that is magic. If you've never experienced something like that, I can only tell you that it is unlike anything you could imagine.
Voodoo Rhythm Records put this out oh-so-many years ago, and it holds up. Described as traditional rockabilly meets swamp blues meets '60s beat, I can't think of a more apt description of a band's music. And while the soundtrack I envision for the cannibal manuscript is mostly old country, this fit quite well.
"This record is a lesson for every teen-ager and a warning for every parent!" That's what the cover says. I doubt many teens are listening to this, as they are too absorbed with whatever shit passes for music these days. This harkens to the past, a time when music was actually seen as dangerous and were never seen on the Today show with Al rocking out.
If only they knew ...
