Hamper McBee of Monteagle, Tennessee "The Good Old Fashioned Way"

(Drag City) Lomax-ed out country and English ballad-type music recording meets WPA oral history project meets your dream uncle. In addition to having a name too fake to be fake, McBeehas a resonant voice that's too hypnotic to become monotonous, even when he sues a monotone or talks and talks and talks. He could be lying, he could be truthing, but botoom line, your Modest Mouse CD ain't gonna give you tips on running a still, break down the mental manipulations of carny hustling or tell a long story that climaxes with  a masturbating monkey driving a little car.
