Schooley, John & Daniels, Walter – “Dead Mall Blues” – [12XU (Austin, TX)]
mickeyslim 11/5/2014 12-inch, Blues
John Schooley and Walter Daniels, two ex-punksters/current noisefolkbluesters. Daniels played in Jack O’ Fun with Tim Kerr from Big Boys, and Schooley’s band, The Revelations toured with The Oblivians and Schooley also toured solo with R.L. Burnside (if that’s any testament to his blues abilities).
Here is their folk/blues album, chalked full of covers, this is also the first album where they both play exclusively acoustic instruments. Since they’re so used to making those awesomely strange distorted noises and electronics, they are kind of forced to bring that out in the acoustic sounds. Great collaboration!
Covers of Blind Willie McTell, John Fahey, Hank Williams, and a couple traditional pieces. My favorite is the original “Winston Churchill Cigar Blues.”

It was actually The Revelators, not the Revelations.
