  6. "In a stellar interview with No-Neck Blues Band’s Keith Connolly, the former Harry Pussy guitarist essentially spells out his M.O.: “My desire to do non-blues material owes a lot to reading [Elijah Wald’s book on Robert Johnson, Escaping the Delta] and realizing that what we think of as the blues is a fiction and just how messed up our ideas about authenticity are.” Since his return to music a few years ago as a slack-tuned, four-string wildman, Bill Orcutt has reinvigorated and befuddled our ideas about the guitar. And on A History of Every One, he takes novelty songs, work hollers, Disney tunes and hymns, and skewers them to his skittering, frenzied style. A History of Every One forces us to question what we know of these original melodies and intents, yet teases out the phrases we often miss in shards and slides.”

    Lars Gotrich writing about "A History of Every One" on NPR.org

  7. "Orcutt is slicing open the past 150 years of popular American music, Gordon Matta-Clark-style, and attempting to read the stars by the innards that spill out. All artists should hope for a subject so broad, and results so unique, especially when they sound this good."
    — James Ford on "Twenty Five Songs"
