Greil Marcus Mentioned Billy Sedlmayr Online, So That's Pretty Cool




Greil Marcus is one of the deans of what we consider music writing these days, so when he recommends something it holds some weight. He's doing a column for Barnes & Noble (among other things these days) called the Real Life Rock Top Ten, which is more or less a list of stuff he likes. Somehow we missed it, but last week, among an episode of "The Good Wife" and a dry cleaning place in St. Paul, Minnesota was our very own Billy Sedlmayr:

Billy Sedlmayr “Charmed Life” (Fell City). Once Sedlmayr was everywhere in the Tucson punk scene; then for long years he was nowhere. This is his first solo album: a True Detective soundtrack after the fact. The case blows up with “Grapes in My Garden.”

It's a great album. I imagine Zia has it (right?), but get your hands on a copy before the year is through.
