Errr. Though on the evil/greatness thing maybe this song wins. Sorry about the video, nowt to do with me.

Yep, that's right. I'm listening to a lot of rockabilly today.

Nice one Bonsai.

Doesn't everyone say it's Robert Johnson - and after all, why isn't it?

possibly because he's a bit boring/painful to actually listen to, innit? in other words if you have bought into the mystique then it's like AMAZING and OTHERWORLDLY but if you haven't it's al a bit nails-down-blackboard. Though i'll happily be presented with a work which justifies his surpassing greatness on the evilometer etc but not hellhound on my trail.. too obvious!

Sorry - you're right, the mystique around the delta blues was a marketing ploy from the off and depends on some dubious stereotypes. I wasn't personally endorsing Johnson, just asking a question slightly aggressively cos I was drunk.

No need to apologise, that must be one of the best videos I've ever seen!

Johnathan Miller directed it? What a renaissance man!
