What better way to celebrate (or ignore) the Fourth of July than by spending it in the company of a diehard Canadian one-man band whose idea of a good time is to take the most revered and authentic roots music and trash it up as thoroughly as possible? Bloodshot Bill hails from Montreal and has collaborated in various projects with like-minded roots-diggers King Khan (as Tandoori Knights) and Mark “BBQ” Sultan (in The Ding-Dongs). All by his lonesome, Bloodshot Bill yowls like a sick and seedy alley cat while chopping away at his guitar and stomping on a board for percussion. Such ditties as “The Girl Who Dances Alone” and the shaggy-dog UFO tale “Creature From the Sky” shuffle along with raw, primitive simplicity.
