The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Lighter is not always better.
True. Wasteland of the Free is a powerful song. In spite of ourselves is fun
Dement sounds great with John Prine. After years of smoking (various substances, I'm sure) and drinking, Prine needs a strong female voice to pick him up when he starts to fall. Dement works very nicely. I hope they sing together more.
It would definitely be nice to hear more collaborations between the two.
John Prine never starts to fall. He's a little rougher around the corners since he had throat cancer, but he never starts to fall.
