Smoke Notes

'When the Devil Goes Blind' is the fantastic new album from the folk blues singer / songwriter / guitarist Charlie Parr from Duluth, Minnesota whose song "1922" was featured in that Vodafone TV ad with the guy who folds the contents of his apartment, including his girlfriend, into his phone.

Charlie's specialty is old time 'pre-war' acoustic blues; he does it as well as anyone on the planet at the moment and writes great original material.

A character like no other, Parr was raised on Alan Lomax field recordings and his father's first-hand accounts of the Depression and riding the freight trains. Charlie shows up with a lived-in rasp of a voice, National resonator and 12-string acoustic guitars, a banjo and a batch of his own songs with a library of songs up his sleeve by Mississippi John Hurt, Charley Patton and other cohorts from another time if the mood takes him.

"The recording features several new original songs dealing with my usual obsessions: death, poverty, suffering, the apocalypse, Ned Kelly, hopeless aspirations and dreams that are squashed by reality. Stuff like that, and drunken farm animals."

- Charlie Parr
