ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lonesome Bert Hodge (Eisenhower's love-child, JFK's acolyte, Nixon's dupe, left high and dry by the Age of Aquarius,) with his acoustic guitar, has taken to the song-forge to hammer his solipsistic angst into blades of irony, sarcasm and wit with which to torment the foes of free thought. Recorded live and together in the studio with the Skinny Lizards(Chris Clark on the hand-propelled acoustic bass, Steve Mitherz on the electric pandiero), this collection of engaging and mind-probing songs will demonstrate the true meaning of "neo-classical post-modern folk-blues" and point you in the direction it is headed.

Awesome tunes
I came upon Lonesome Bert et al. in St Augustine in May '08; sitting in the outdoor area of one of the pubs with a beer, enjoying the witty lyrics and entertaining music to go with them. You really do need to pay attention to the lyrics and will get a chuckle when the story unique to each song comes together in your head (the timing of which, of course, depends on the number of pints consumed by the listener). Truly artists the three of them. Make sure you find out where they are performing in St Augustine when you go there, but definitely buy their CD in the meantime! I love all kinds of music genre; Lonesome Bert and the Skinny Lizards put a clever and refreshing spin on blues/folk!

This Is The Real Deal
Whether it's the Devil lamenting the lack of souls avaiable for barter or a New Orleans hurricane victim singin' the blues from Mayor Nagin's penthouse, Lonesome Bert and the Skinny Lizards have made a CD that's fun to listen to. Not a lot of frills to this recording, but then, it doesn't need them. The imaginative lyrics laid down over acoustic guitar, bass and percussion give a true flavor of grassroots music that is both insightful and amusing. After listening to Bert and the Lizards, you won't be able to pass an abandoned rail spur or a Hummer without wondering how they nailed it so well. This music is the real deal!

All
Bert's poetry is amazing. Social commentary, sardonic observations and hints of disillusioned romanticism ...it's all there. Juanita's Lullaby is is tragically sweet - reminiscent of Woody
Guthrie's "Farewell Adelita".I alternately guffawed, sighed and teared up with this album.
