Shepperton, England 's Dan Melchior emerged as a primitivist bile-fueled bard in the tradition of Skip James and Billy Childish (the latter of whom he has collaborated with, as well as being part of Holly Golightly's band). He eventually emigrated to the USA where he settled in to create a huge discography of releases solo and with NYC's great Broke Revue. These days he's relocated to North Carolina, and has continued to sidestep easily-pegged garage rock categorization to create some truly mutant sounds, irascible as ever with his Das Menace project and a new album "Catbirds and Cardinals" on Northern-Spy. More Chrome than countrified, Dan and Das Menace rip it up on Brian's show today! Lineup: Dan Melchior: vox, guitar, David Van Dokkum: drums, Tony Allman: bass. Songs today: Ride In a Van / Black Dog Barking / Bewildered and Wild / Town Feeling (Kevin Ayers cover) / (Interview). Please check out a webpage set up to help Dan and his lovely wife Letha foot medical costs for her treatments: melchiorfund.blogspot.com. Thanks Dan & DM and Mike!
