Colin O’Brien

Slidell Blues

D For Disk

Slidell: One of the best, and bluesiest tunes off of Colin O’Brien’s 1997 release “Pressure in the West,” this was among my first recordings. I play blues violin on the track, originally penned by Paul Geremia. Mike Bieser is on bass.

D For Disk: Actually, Colin was really talking about “D For Dick” on this tune, I think. A sly, fun, tongue-in-cheek tune.

Colin, Mike Bieser and I (plus contributions from Steve Wurcer on guitar and drummer Bill Backes from Little Blue Crunchy Things) rocked these tunes, some of mine and some of Mike’s at Milwaukee’s famous/infamous Summerfest Festival in the 1990s and early 2000s.
