DRAGGING AN OX THROUGH WATER refuses the bait...
In my pretentious little black notebook, the note about the opening act from that show reads "SHIT NIGHTMARE." I have to say in all honesty I don't really like this band. However, that being said, a lot of people in the P-town do. Including some of our very own Crappy Indie Music bloggers whose taste I respect.
So what then? Why spend time writing about something you don't go for? Well, I will give Dragging An Ox Through Water this- he is out there on the stage by himself doing something. He is doing it hard, and he is giving it his all. Sincerity counts a lot in my book. This is not some exercise in fashion and irony... at least as far as I can tell from the man himself.
DAOTW would like his listeners to know that a new 7" EP will be coming soon from Stankhouse Records, and details on the release party will be coming soon, but to tide you over until then, here is a track that will be up until the witching hour Wednesday night...
I tried to get Mr. Dragging (or should it be Mr. Ox? Or Mr. Water?) to do an interview with me. As a point of fact, I said some very nasty and honest things to him, and any of you who have read what I have to say before know that I can get downright rude when I want to address the hypokeimenon. Alas, he has declined the prospect of an 'adversarial' interview, so we won't see something like that for now. We can always hope for the future.
