Album Notes
Bluesbunny (UK) about "Electric Gates of Heaven" 2009/11/30: In the weird and wonderful world of music, there walks a man with a banjo called Dad Horse Ottn. The path he walks heads towards righteousness and on this vinyl single he alters his step with the use of an electric guitar. / "Gates of Heaven" is no stranger to my ears but here the anguished electric guitar intertwines with those fractured vocals to further add to its oddball charm. Sure, it's all very minimalistic but in a way that Johnny Cash would have approved of. / "The Moonshiner" dances likes some gypsy polka making it more Balkans than Tennessee. It's an ode to drinking and clouds over the horizon and being the perennial loser in love (but there's always the drink in the end). / That takes us nicely into "I'm Not Here Anymore" which, powered by some rollicking fuzz guitar, bounces about the room like some acid powered throwback to Buck Owens. / These three songs are just about as far as you can get from corporate sensibilities and, let's be honest, they are none the worse for all that. Time for another whiskey! / This release is a limited edition of 500, by the way.
