Dr. Marigaux’s new album of solo guitar and vocal – a journey through blues roots to a fresh contemporary vision of the blues.
“The first record I ever brought with my own money as a teenager was a collection of 1930s blues, and I listened to that one over and over again. Sleepy John Estes’ Little Laura was on that album, and I’ve had blues running around in my head ever since. Last year I stumbled into the abandoned Waikune Prison, and took the photos of the old chapel that provide the cover art for this album. Remembering that place became a sort of guide to the music – what music belongs in that abandoned prison chapel? Deep blues, songs of sadness, death, and bitter love certainly, but also wry humour: laughing in the face of despair.”
