Crankshaft Primitive, 12/8/09
Absolutely amazing one-man blues band from Anoka, MN. The Decomposeurs opened for him at the Nestor this past tuesday (Dec. 8th) and it was just a blast to watch, especially when he pulled out “They’re Red Hot” by Robert Johnson and, last but not least, one of my favorite Elmore James songs “Shake Your Moneymaker.” I didn’t even request it, he just closed his set with it. He and Blind Joe had a great banter through Crankshaft’s whole set, it was hilarious. The guy’s originals were very well done too, no “imitation” blues or blues-light(white?).
Final score? Hell yes! Mad props to this MN bluesman!
Check him out, from 2008:
Have it good,
