Samson, John K.
Solo album from the singer of The Weakerthans (Anti/Epitaph)! Across twelve beautiful individual portraits, John weaves stories and pictures of old cars, icy landscapes, grad school procrastination and ampersands. The range of his vocabulary and imagery are so far away from the usual tired cliches of rock 'n' roll. Like most other people who work with words and music John stands apart as a bona fide writer, as opposed to just another hack knocking syllables around until they fall into line with the Bonham beats and power chords.
