    Dark Night Of The Soul

    This musical DNA has been in Jimbo Mathus since birth. His father and relatives
    were all skilled musicians who filled the house with old folk, country and blues
    tunes. By the age of eight, Mathus was joining them on mandolin and by his
    teenage years had learned guitar and piano. High school led to playing in punk
    and new wave bands, the most notable being Johnny Vomit and the Dry Heaves
    and The End, with future Oblivian Jack Yarber. Post high school, Mathus studied
    Philosophy at Mississippi State University before leaving to travel around
    America. In doing so he worked various jobs, including an influential stint as
    a barge tankerman on the mighty Mississippi River. Settling in Chapel Hill,
    N.C., he drummed in the cult rock band Metal Flake Mother prior to starting
    the Squirrel Nut Zippers. This ahead-of-its-time retro roots band scored a hit
    with "Hot" and performed at President Clinton's second Inauguration and the
    1996 Summer Olympics. Following the Zippers' split, Mathus worked with such
    noted artists such as Buddy Guy and Elvis Costello, and collaborated with North
    Mississippi Allstars guitarist Luther Dickinson and Alvin Youngblood Hart in the
    South Memphis String Band. He also recorded his own albums (including one
    dedicated to his childhood nanny Rosetta Patton, the daughter of Delta blues
    icon Charley Patton).


    On most of 'Dark Night's' tracks, Mathus' acoustic guitar is surrounded by
    the electric guitar played by his longtime sideman Matt Pierce and pal Eric
    "Roscoe" Ambel. (Ambel produced 'White Buffalo' but on 'Dark Night' he focuses
    exclusively on his righteous guitar playing.) The album's raw, rock sound arose
    from the fact that most of the tracks were recorded live in the studio with
    Mathus' band, the Tri-State Coalition, which he found "very liberating way of
    doing it." Mathus feels very in synch with his bandmates (keyboardist Eric
    Carlton, drummer Ryan Rogers, guitarist Pierce and guest bassist and Drive By
    Trucker Matt Patton) since they have played together now for several years.
    "The intensity you're hearing on this album," he proclaims, "is the spirit of a
    band that is put ting it's shit on the line ."
