unsung hero of musical margins
Meet Electric Ed, a.k.a. “Eddie Haskell”, a libertarian musician of some repute. i did the art below for one of this elder man’s CDs but he never used it (as far as i know). He’s a real “low key” type of character, now in his 60s. i met him while living off-grid, freely, about 15 years back, and we’re still only “good acquaintances”. That’s okay with me, though.
So this shows one of his CD titles, “Defeating War”. i like even more the music from earlier CDs, especially “1491” and “Old Car”. You can check his music out (and help your local college radio station play it!?!) here: http://www.myspace.com/spiritdude4 . There, you can listen to about 4 songs of his, for free. He’d like to hear from you via email, but i don’t have it off-hand…so if there’s any interest, comment and i’ll see what i can do!
Ed has also authored some more challenging songs. One of them stands out, and it’s a bit politically-incorrect, or so it seems on the surface of the song “Bitch Goddess”. I think he’s trying to get behind the surfaces of What We Usually Think, tho, and calling the entire system “the bitch” that has “got us”. What do you think?
Lastly, Ed has ONE SONG on youtube.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMGzF_Naj9Y
(wow, just under 200 views and ALREADY he has an ad…argh?)
Ed would like assistance from anyone who likes his stuff. That means, buying one of his $20 CDs or helping him get his stuff “out there” to a larger audience.
Prolific in various instruments, and having probably 40 years experience, at least, i like him best when he’s playing a Mandolin. Real fun, and has some depth, for sure!
