Show Notes

The recent Grammy winner and string multi-instrumentalist with the Afghan Whigs, the Polyphonic Spree, and the Twilight Singers is also the owner/engineer at the wonderful Marigny Studios. His early orchestral training and rock’n’roll impulses led to a decade touring with the Spree, including two Bowie tours. His post-Katrina volunteer work resulted in permanent relocation to New Orleans and the eventual establishment of the studio. Rick’s a real talent who believes in trusting the professionals he works with. Let’s hope his trust isn’t misplaced as he puts it all on the line with the Troubled Men.

Topics include the Safe House, Hurricane Ida, roof damage, a tree cutter, coastal destruction, name confusion, music training, punk exposure, a first gig, older women, parents’ music, car trouble, UNT, violin to bass, loving school, an audition, a religious experience, future vision, not a cult, choir robes, 32 on a bus, a launch pad, meeting Bowie, studio training, Luthjen’s Dancehall, the Beat Exchange, board-side manner, trust, Greg Dulli, Dave Rosser, the Gutter Twins, guitar lessons, ghost stories, a legacy, a guitar collection, New Orleans musicianship, and much more.

TMP 88 Jerry Giddens Preaches to the Choir

The singer/songwriter began as a child preacher and revival soloist in the Baptist church of Ringgold, Louisiana.

Eight records and a PhD in literature later, he returned to New Orleans to indoctrinate a new generation of impressionable youth. The Troubled Men welcome any help they can get. Topics include a holiday fire hazard, parties, presents, drinking, driving, advertising, Alexa, a showbiz principle, the Men’s movement, incels, Bienville parish, a cotton plantation, Jesus musicals, missionary work, a relocation, cold readings, the Loft Studio, acting class with Sean Penn, Elizabeth McGovern, Blood on the Saddle, the Long Ryders, the Cruzados and Eddie Muños, touring, Peter Case and the Plimsouls, Bob Forrest, a fistfight, Hollywood glory days, hated bands, El Salvador benefits, teaching college vs. playing music, social media, answering machines, sauna vs. steam, a fact check, a comedy team, and much more.
