Good Beeble

Then there’s the honeydew-melon spiked with moonshine whiskey and cheep (sic) wine Americana of The Gourds (“Dem’s Good Beeble”, 1996). Which would go well with this Walker Evans photo of a roadside stand near Birmingham, Alabama, taken in the mid-1930s Ramage has on his desktop currently, taken from the awesome Library of Congress American Memory Collection.

There’s a Gourds site too, described as “music for the unwashed and well-read”. Amen to that.
