BEALE STREET CARAVAN TAPING PERFORMANCE IN EARLY JUNE AS EARLY RAVES COME FROM DIFFUSER, WAX POETICS, ETC.
Before he passed away, Jim Dickinson heard Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen, whose new album ‘Love & Life’ comes out July 31. Dickinson had this to say about Ted’s music:
“Ever wonder what would have happened if Bukka White had discovered the
Fuzz Tone? Or if Skip James had played piano with Antenna Jimmy and
Drumbo from the Magic Band? Scissormen is acid blues for the 21st
century... Robert Palmer would indeed be proud.”
Early buzz on ‘Love & Life’ has been excellent. In a premiere of
“Beggin’ Jesus,” Diffuser.FM praised Drozdowski’s “Staggering guitar
skills [on] music that will stand the test of time."
Wax Poetics said, “Ted Drozdowski’s Scissormen weaves together Hill Country blues, Memphis soul, and psychedelic/garage rock.”
Beale Street Caravan is taping the band’s performance on June 2 at Rum Boogie in Memphis, TN for broadcast on its nationally syndicated radio program.
Elmore called the album an “exciting journey of experimental, genre-hopping, electric and eclectic music making.”
