Giant SandToday we have two new names at The Little Lighthouse. Pissed Jeans – a neo-grunge band from Pauline, SC. They’ve been a Sub Pop attraction for a few years now, but we have them here for the first time with their new album King of Jeans. We also have Glossary, a new band in and around the Memphis rock’n’roll scene. Beck and Wilco united last summer for a session where they re-recorded the entire Alexander Skip Spence album called Oar. This album is weekly uploaded track by track on Beck’s web site, and there’s one track left to go. Drive By Truckers recorded a new 45 and it is a tribute to Eddie Hinton. Besides Hinton’s great song Everybody Needs Love, the b-side of that 45 contains a wonderful cover of a lesser known Hinton’s song Where’s Eddie. The song and the new version are simply perfect. We also have in this show the new one-off record by Giant Sand called Off Ramp, which is a collection of out-takes and snippets from the recording session that gave birth to their 1991 masterpiece called Ramp.

Luther DickinsonToday’s highlight is definitely the new very special tribute to Jim Dickinson, created by his sons, friends and sons of his friends entitled Luther Dickinson & The Sons of Mudboy. Listeners of The Little Lighthouse are very well familiar with Jim Dickinson’s ad-hoc supergroup called Mudboy and the Neutrons – one of the best bands that ever came out of Memphis, well known for their chaotic covers of standards and traditionals. Now, using the same idea but with a layer of sorrow surrounding the passing of Jim, Luther Dickinson and the Sons of Mudboy put out an excellent album called Onward and Upward. This record is a magnificent farewell to the imposing figure that Jim Dickinson used to be on the Memphis rock’n’roll scene. We also check out the newest album for the Swiss zydeco band Mama Rosin (Black Robert) and the new album for the singersongwriter Freedy Johnston (Rain On The City). Also, please check out our new bonus podcast below that we will receive weekly from Igor Mitic in Pancevo. Look for the panther logo and title Sympathy for Rock’n’roll!
