READIN

Jeremy's journal

At first I didn't quite know what I would do with the book, other than read it over and over again. My distrust of history then was still strong, and I wanted to concentrate on the story for its own sake, rather than on the manuscript's scientific, cultural, anthropological, or 'historical' value. I was drawn to the author himself.

Hobo Nickel

Just putting the finishing touches on my first record! I will not be selling it online to begin with, but if you'd be interested in ordering a copy just drop me a line and I'm sure we can work something out.

The Primetone(tm) Apostropick

The plectrum saga continues... I was inspired by the Tortex(tm) Talon to try the same idea in a different plectrum material -- the Primetone, which I had previously not liked that much, was the material I chose because it is extremely rigid. It came out great! Check out the recording of "This Land is Your Land" linked below -- it was made using the Apostropick on the bass strings and fingerstyle on the tenor.

Sleepwalker's Lullaby

One nice side benefit of the class I took last spring at la Universidad Desconocida was the chance to meet classmate Isabel Zapata. Today her "Canción de Cuna para Sonámbulos" is online at Limulus along with my translation. Check it out! A beautiful poem.

Jim Dunlop



I'm kind of flabbergasted still about how seemingly good, worthwhile music is just about pouring out of me since I started using these picks! It's like it was the crucial next step from the Dunlop Thins that I used when I was recording "The Modesto Kid" -- suddenly I'm actually a musician! Check out this playlist [redacted rant of self-justification] -- "Jim Dunlop" by Jer "The Modesto Kid" Osner, traditional music and beyond.

Plectra

Wow! I must say I'm enjoying playing with the new picks I recently acquired! It is opening up a whole new sort of relationship with the guitar for me. Some songs and attempts at songs that I've been recording with these new plectra, are at my Soundcloud stream. Look!:

New Kweskin, Old Kweskin

Went over to a friend's house from the have_moicy mailing list the other day, to see about some used Holy Modal Rounders records; wonder of wonders he turned out to have a whole bunch of Jim Kweskin and the Jug Band as well!







And now look! "Jim Kweskin in the 21st Century" -- featuring a new "Blues in the Bottle", plus guest appearances from David Grisman and John Sebastan, Maria and Geoff Muldaur -- is available on Spotify! and fantastic.
