Biography

These two nice Catholic boys, Loren Connors and Jim O’Rourke, met at the crossroads each night during a 1997 European tour. By this time O’Rourke already reissued Connors’ seminal heartbreak album In Pittsburgh on his Dexter’s Cigar label and produced the guitarist’s big-band mash-up with Alan Licht, Hoffman Estates.

Together, they unravel slow motion ghost blues across three extended pieces that evolve from Connors’ martian style to the thundering, feedback splattered lead grooves of O’Rourke. The spontaneous melodies shift from devastating, country road intimacy to hypnotic overamped rock. It’s ferocious, epic, and utterly beautiful. This live CD is only the second duo release by these musical partners. During the past decade, O’Rourke has repeatedly returned to hours of recordings captured across Europe to select these 47 minutes.
