Another One of the Good Fulks

Deming

I am a fool for "Traditional" Country music in the vein of George Jones, Buck Owens, and Merle Haggard so it only makes sense that I would be attracted to "New Traditionalists" like Steve Earle, Marty Stuart, and Dwight Yoakum. I recently discovered the "NeoTraditionalist" Jim Lauderdale and crow about him earlier on this blog. I have "discovered" another: Robbie Fulks. Robbie has even more of the ironic sense of humor that makes light of the subject but not the style of traditional country music. Mr. Fulks, like Mr. Lauderdale, plays with the self-consciousness of the lyrics and exploits the sound, but ultimately celebrates the style. "F*ck This Town" says it all for Fulks. He deserves so much more attention than he has gotten.

This is my 4th. Robbie album from eMusic and it's as good, if not better than the others. "Old Smartass" really shows where he gets his name and reputation from with intellegent, humerous, laser hitting lyrics and musical styles that cut right across the main genre labelled country. Nashville's industry like tycoons must have really upset him but that has been to the benefit of his subsequent recordings. First class and highly recommended, thanks eMusic.

They Say All Music Guide

Fulks uses a backing musician cavalcade on each track in this exploration of “the dark side of country music.” Not strictly downbeat, there is plenty of humor here, too (“I Told Her Lies,” etc.). Especially noteworthy are the steel guitar players (Steve Byam and Buck Owens’ Tom Brumley) and the solid bass guitar from Lou Whitney of the Skeletons. These arrangements, bolstered by a mob of electric and acoustic guitarists, make for the salient entertainment on this disc. Fulks is no Hank Williams, in that Fulks can’t often hold your attention with merely his material, voice, and guitar. However, the variety on this disc, from ballads like “Forgotten but Not Gone” to real insurgency like “F*ck This Town,” and the rich instrumentation make it a fine contribution to alternative country music. – Tom Schulte
