Cowboy Junkies :: Sing In My Meadow – The Nomad Series Volume 3


Met Sing In My Meadow – The Nomad Series Volume 3 laten de Cowboy Junkies een kant van zichzelf zien die ze tot nu toe reserveerden voor live-optredens. Verdwenen is het lieve, bijna sprookjesachtige geluid. Daarvoor in de plaats experimenteren ze er lustig op los. Dit is, zoals ze het zelf zeggen, hun smerige kant. Dit is een mix van Miles Davis, The Birthday Party, Captain Beefheart en Neil Young & Crazy Horse. Het resultaat is verbluffend, ook omdat de zang van Margo Timmins even vervreemdend als fraai afsteekt bij die wilde overstuurde muziek. 

The idea behind Sing In My Meadow was to create an album that referenced an aspect of our live performances that we don’t dig into very much in our studio recordings.  We wanted the album to revolve around those psychedelic, blues-inspired forays we are so fond of exploring on stage. So this past February the live band (the four of us plus Jeff Bird) gathered in our studio to record all of these songs over a four day period. We approach them all live-off-the-floor: nasty and dirty and disturbing the cold winter’s nights peace. We tried to channel Miles at the Isle of Wight, deep in his Bitches Brew phase; Captain Beefheart and his Mirror Man psychoses; The Birthday Party live at the Electric Ballroom circa 1981 (Margo, Al and I were in that audience); Neil and Crazy Horse in the back room at SIR….overdriven and thick with electricity. (Michael Timmins)
