Episode 139: aired 08.31.2013


Autopsy IV note: A couple of weeks back I posted a help wanted post on the site in an effort to find some additional (and consistent) contributors. For the time being I am gonna post their posts as guest posts for a little while as we nail down the site since the great spam hack of 2011 and as they prove who will be consistent and who’s gonna decide this bloggery isn’t for them.

This post comes from 9B contributor prospect John Allman. Lemme know what you guys think.

There’s a timeless feeling that comes with listening to John Paul Keith’s latest disc, The Man That Time Forgot.

It crosses so many styles but never feels anything less than cohesive. And the songs, whoa buddy, the songs really catch your ear.

Speaking of buddy, there’s a good chance that if you blindfolded a friend and made them listen to the first three songs on the disc, without telling them the artist, they would think that you had unearthed some long lost Buddy Holly record.

The jangly guitars, falsetto crooning and driving backbeat has all the hallmarks of Holly and the Crickets, and that my friends, is a good, good thing.

I was amazed at how familiar the songs felt, even upon first listen. They’re comfortable in a way that is comforting, not in an uninspired, same old same fashion. This is just solid song craftsmanship with catchy hooks and smart lyrics, everything that you want to make you hit repeat on the stereo instead of digging through a bunch of discs for something else to play.

The first part of the disc sounds like the soundtrack to a classic film chronicling the lives of young lovers and students trying to get by in the 1950s. Tracks like “You Devil You,” “Bad Luck Baby” or the standout “Anyone Can Do It,” were made for summer days driving to the beach with the convertible top down.

There are several top-notch rockabilly rave-ups that would be right at home in a drive-in exploitation film like “High School Confidential!” starring Mamie Van Doren. Songs like “Dry County” or “I Work At Night” would be perfect playing while all the tough guys and bad girls are driving out to the quarry to drink and get wild and let hands wander up under Angora sweaters or down the front of gabardine jeans.

Keith slows things down with two plaintive ballads, “Song For Sale” and the title track, “The Man That Time Forgot,” which also comes highly recommended. The dark and somber lyrics creep under your skin: “Everything we were is everything we’re not/Here I am/The man that time forgot”

Oddly, one of the best songs is the only song that seems out of place. “The Last Last Call” plays like a classic 1970s country radio staple sung by Conway Twitty or George Jones. Thematically, it doesn’t fit with the 11 songs before it, but musically, it’s a stellar track, a true ‘tears in your beer’ lament sung spoken-word style like a poor drunk’s sober up sermon to the world.
