Back in about 1995 I saw a Minneapolis band called the Willie Wisely Trio, which was actually a quartet (drums, amplified upright bass, trombone and electric guitar/vocals). It was in a tiny basement bar in St. Louis called Cicero’s. They were eclectic and energetic, and this tune was a sort of nod to the 12-bar blues format. This recording sounds very much like their live show did. I was amused/impressed at Wisely’s playing, because it seemed like he gave about 37 negative Fs about polish. He seemed to be making abstract noise gestures to suggest blues playing, and I’d never heard someone do that before. https://www.google.com/search?q=six+buckets+of+kerosene&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari At the show he was using a G & L Strat through a Music Man 2 x 12 combo with bare fingers, and it was LOUD. But he left space for the trombone, upright bass and small jazz kit to come through, and I was intrigued with how he did that too. The guy had some moves and seemed to have a big chord vocabulary but in this tune he was just flailing away, skronking a bunch of open strings and whatnot. It was a hoot. Saw them again a year or two later and he was playing an ES-175, and his approach was gentler and more refined. Got any wild-ass skronktastic tunes you dig that you’d like to share?
