CARNY MUSIC FOR THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY ECONOMIC DUSTBOWL
WOEBEGONER by Danbert Nobacon Miranda Zickler and The Bad Things (Verbal Burlesque Records VB 004 2018)
WOEBEGONER is a wholly regracked, remixed and totally reimagined 2018 version of the original Woebegone album (2010). On the original album Johnny Woebegone (played by Danbert Nobacon) was still carrying the shrapnel, wedged in his vocal chords, from the bomb blast which should have ended his life. In the 2018 version, shrapnel finally removed and his vocal chords near healed, he teams up with the audacious audiosumptuous Lilithiana Red (played by Kuinka’s mirazzmerizing Miranda Zickler) to re-tell the first parts of their story of love, loss and time travel from a base point of the decaying world of the early mid twenty first century … via songs of oil, sex, and death, and always under the watchful eye of the privatized intel “inner surveillance” team of Wade (played by Kira Wood Cramer) and Ross (played by Johnny Watson). Dusted off and polished up musical backbone from Seattle’s finest, The Bad Things, and studio magickery by Mell Dettmer.
