"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.”
