DAN MELCHIOR: Fire Breathing Clones On Cellular Phones: CD

Jul 07, 2006

I first heard of Melchior as a collaborator with Billy Childish and Holly Golightly on various albums, and that is perfect company to keep. That term “singer-songwriter” has been destroyed by the mainstream to mean shitty white guy noodling in the House of Rules. That’s too bad, because here is a man who puts on no image, just writes songs and rocks them out. These songs are heartfelt and melodic, and while you can see the link to the Childish-Golightly scene this is not a rip-off but a solid voice. I can hear some good ole Country Teasers seeping in too. Shit, I gotta catch up with his older stuff.
