(Songwriter/Roots Rock/Folk/Alt.Country) 2013 Hear - drei prominente Namen stehen hier dick auf dem Cover, die aber allesamt "nur" im Hintergrund dieses neuen spektakulären Americana-Großwerks ("a Southern Gothic supernatural musical thriller of fraternal love, lust, jealousy, and revenge") agieren. Da ist zunächst John Mellencamp: Er ist der Ideengeber und Initiator für dieses Schauspiel/Musical und hat die 17 Songs dazu praktisch im Alleingang geschrieben. Der zweite ist der bekannte Schriftsteller Stephen King ("The King of Horror"), der früh (heißt: bereits vor 13 Jahren!) von Mellencamp kontaktiert wurde und in seiner Begeisterung für das Thema seine Mitarbeit an Drehbuch, Dialogen, Texten anbot. Erst in jüngster Zeit und unter Einbeziehung des Dritten im Bunde, des legendären T Bone Burnett, als musikalischer Leiter, Arrangeur und Produzent, wurde das ambitionierte Werk vollendet und in 2012 auf einer Bühne in Atlanta uraufgeführt. Nun liegt die Musik, nur unterbrochen von kurzen Dialogschnipseln, in voller Pracht auf CD vor. Das Teil ist 70:21 lang, davon sind 58 Minuten Musik (am besten, man programmiert nach einem Durchlauf die geraden Tracks, dann hat man die gesprochenen Texte ausgeklammert). Eine klasse Mischung aus Roots & Americana, Blues & Alt.Country, Folk und Rock, eingebettet in die fürchterliche Mord & Totschlag-Geschichte um zwei Brüder und ein paar andere verhängnisvoll miteinander verstrickte Charaktere in einer Kleinstadt in Mississippi. Die beteiligten Personen werden von illustren Genrestars wiederkehrend in den jeweiligen Songs verkörpert: Elvis Costello, Neko Case, Dave & Phil Alvin, Sheryl Crow, Ryan Bingham, Kris Kristofferson, Taj Mahal, Rosanne Cash u.a. Die traumhafte Studioband besteht aus der von so vielen T Bone Burnett-Produktionen bekannten L.A. Clique: Marc Ribot, Andy York, Keefus Green, David Piltch, Jay Bellerose und Burnett selber mit akustischen und elektrischen Gitarren. Nur der einzige John Mellencamp-Track ganz am Ende, 'Truth', stammt aus einer anderen Session in Indiana. Bemerkenswert ist die hörbare/spürbare Hingabe aller Beteiligten für dieses Projekt. Besonders hervorzuheben sind allerdings die 2 Einzelbeiträge und 4 Kollaborationen mit den Alvins von Sheryl Crow. Kaum mehr zu erwarten nach all dem Mittelmaß ihrer ganzen letzten Alben rückt sie mit dieser starken Vorstellung in die Americana-Champions League auf! Die CD kommt im wertigen Hardcover mit Liner Notes, Texten, Credits usw.


From the minds of co-conspirators Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett comes Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a southern gothic supernatural musical thriller of fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge.
