Little Howlin Wolf - The Cool Truth
Since the early 90's, street musician James Pobiega has been mixing and matching history and present madness into his own version of the blues. This is outsider, experimental music, but also music informed by tradition. Sometimes literally, sometimes alluded to, Howlin Wolf churns behind this guy’s tunes, a ghost that points to the POINT and allows for variations on the ancient theme to which we all try to measure up.
In other words, Genius is trying to make the case that you belong with the gang of idiots that tried to make the world a holy place. Little Howlin Wolf, through rudimentary keyboards, ragged and raw guitar, found sounds, samples of the masters, and with a poker face guaranteed to turn heads, makes his case for having been here, and having payed attention to the masters who at least pointed the way to keep going.
