Jim White...and 16 Horsepower...

Having sufficiently recovered from the trauma of the last post, I reminded myself how much I love the documentary/musical film/drama (does it matter?) 'Searching For The Wrong-Eyed Jesus'.
A beautiful piece of film-making and music in harmony if ever there was one, led by the inimitable Jim White, part troubadour, part matinee idol.
Mr. White is one of the most charismatic and entertaining live performers I've seen, mixing many tales of his winding, colourful life alongside his simple, hypnotic songs - I once went to see him and some fool kept shouting for him to stop 'talking' and just 'play'. Rather missing the point I thought...


Anyway, someone once said that my music sounded a bit like 16 Horsepower, also featured in 'SFTW-EJ', and, once I found out who they were referring too, I nearly wet myself with excitement at the comparison...
