Courtney McClean & the Dirty Curls - This One's for Dad (CD)
Comedy and music don’t always go together splendidly; more frequently, you get a one-off novelty act that’s funny once, but loses its charm quickly. Yes, you have your Tenacious D (comics turned musicians) and your John Prines (musicians with undeniable wit), but they’re the exception. So, too, are Courtney McClean & the Dirty Curls.
These are not the Dixie Chicks (overproduced, slick, natural musicians amped up by a soundman or twelve)—Courtney McClean & the Dirty Curls have more in common with the Cramps, the Fugs, and the slightly misguided jingle-writin’ and truck-drivin’ charm of C.W. McCall. Filthy, feminist, earnest bluegrass expresses deep and abiding lust for the veep, desire and directness in the bedroom, aspirations of grand cougar-ation, and a respect for the comedic interlude that belies the lasting influence of the Wu Tang Clan. And there’s harmony!
