The Big News
I know, I know, three years ago we made a BIG deal about Shawn Ames’ masterful The Sound of One Hand Clapping being his last totally for sure final record ever in millions of years. We even did a whole interview in which he enumerated the reasons why he was retiring from recording music. But you know that was then and this is now and there is some good news here. As the headline reads, the master has returned! Yep, Mr Ames, the mastermind behind raucous road warriors Backlash and an impressive slate of solo records has crawled out of his little hobbit hole of self-imposed isolation from the music world and added another volume to his long running Out of My Head series of EPs. The latest addition, Out of My Head Volume 6, is a quirky and quick collection that swings and sways through wisted mind of a musical mad man, creeping the black shadows meeting the brainless flesh machines and vampires with some chick named Suzy in the back seat. It’s all a sudden, surprising, and welcome warm up for a new for real FINAL album to be released later this year (which I’ve heard and which is so, so goddamn good I can’t wait to review it). Enjoy it because this time he might actually be serious!!
