'Villains' is a thirteen song muddy romp comes straight from the boogie swamp, a frog hopping collection of straight-up (with no chaser!) authentic Delta Blues. If you've ever seen his 'Medicine Show', you Know how Gott-Damned Good it was -- so good that you just wanted to take him home with you, where you could wrap yourself up with him and never let go. And, Yes Lord! With "Villains" Now You Can! Because this is only just Diablo Dimes... his silky sandpaper voice... deep fried in a battered shoe-string arch-top through a nine-volt amp... a peeled wall-paper kazoo or a dime-store harmonica moaning and wailing winsome melodies... a giant ragtime bass drum pounding the four or a floored tambourine tapping the floor -- all recorded live to tape with No Overdubs. I've seen the Diablo Dimes Medicine Show twice, and after mixing his 'Memoirs' sessions I thought about what kind of Dimes record I would produce if given the chance....' --Billy The Jack.
