Night Music: Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks, “By Hook Or By Crook” and “Another Night”

One of my favorite bands of my high school years, though not a big favorite among some of my friends. But among my best friends, the ones who read R. Crumb comix and, well, shared a sensibility that saw a future in that truckin’ past mutating into whatever awful future seemed to be in store, and loved Symphony Sid Page’s fiddle playing, this was gold.

Today, when I load a new musical device I make sure to get some Dan Hicks on there. Deep ties indeed.
