A pre-season treat from Exploded View to YOU with a night of Folk Experimental, Psychedelic and Outsider Electronic !!
Are you familiar with Ralph’s music? Ralph was in a cow-punk band in Austin in the 1990s called The Bad Livers and now plays solo music that’s equally influenced by Appalachia and West African folksongs. He switches effortlessly between banjo, kalimba, fiddle, and accordion and his songs have an earthy psychedelic quality to them.
He’s played with Michael Hurley, Jandek, and Thurston Moore.
You can stream his most recent album with Thor Harris (of Swans) here:
This is a short documentary about Ralph from a few years ago:
