Nick Cave - Red Right Hand

Found video via here

Youtube link, if you need it

This song was probably my first Nick Cave encounter. It is on the various artists "Songs in the Key of X" collection, tunes having something to do with the X-Files TV show. "Red Right Hand" was actually used in the show - As I recall, Scully was listening to it on the radio as she was driving somewhere. Maybe the best "in the X-Files spirit" song ever.

Jimmy Lee Williams
Not sure if there is another music thread. This was the only one I found in the 3 secs I took to look.

I love finding and listening to obscure musicians and like "roots" music.
May I introduce Jimmy Lee Williams, farmer.

Born in 1925 in Polan in Worth County, GA, folk-blues guitarist Jimmy Lee Williams lived his whole life in the area, working as a farmer growing soybeans, peanuts, and watermelons. He learned to play guitar in 1941, and was soon spending his weekends playing for all-night frolics in the area's juke joints. He played a gritty electric guitar style, hummed as much as he sang, and for a time played a rack-mounted harmonica. Musicologist George Mitchell recorded Williams in Polan at two sessions in 1977 and 1982, and eventually 13 of Williams' tracks were released on LP under the title Rock On Away from Here. Rough, ragged, and perfectly charming, the same tracks were released on CD in 2004 under the title Hoot Your Belly on the Fat Possum label. Williams died in the early '90s, but when Hoot Your Belly was released, many reviewers assumed Williams was still alive, and knowing his birth year, listed his age at 79, giving the bluesman an additional decade of service that unfortunately he wasn't able to enjoy.


Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?
