Last fall, during their supporting gig for the BottleRockets at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis, Jackhead debuted a new song titled 'Grey Hair.' As the song unfolded to it's conclusion, this four-minute, driving, almost radio-friendly song encapsulated the progress Jackhead has made in the last year and a half-- progress they have made as writers, musicians, and performers that has turned them from a loud and messy bar band into a loud and messy bar band at appropriate times, but intense and focused overall. After the show, I went up to Cecil Fuson, guitarist and lead vocalist, and spoke with him for awhile about their plans for their next album. It was clear, even then, that they were looking for something much different than their previous recording, Whiskey Melted Glass. Not to take anything away from that record-- it was a good representation of Jackhead at the time, loud and raw, a backdrop for one screaming solo after another. This time, however, they were looking for something more immediate and personal to fit the moody new material. Charlie Tabing, Jackhead's lead guitarist and vocalist, was sitting on the stage, still shaking a bit from another one of his classic onstage spastic machine-gun guitar performances. He confirmed what Fuson was saying: they wanted to do something completely different, based more around acoustic instruments, in the vein of Son Volt's Straightaways. Eventually, they settled on Misunderstudio as the venue for recording and Nathan Clark George as engineer. George, no stranger to acoustic music, gave the band another ear in terms of production, and pushed the recording quality to it's limit. With Whiskey Melted Glass, they set out to record the band's live sound. This time they set out to make a record. Ten months since the Blueberry Hill gig, the album is complete, and it lives up to all expectations. Jackhead has not only delivered a CD of superior production quality, but a lyrically and emotionally cohesive disc. I first listened to the completed Slow Dance on a drive to St. Louis on a Saturday afternoon. I took Highway 149 to Interstate 64 at Nashville. The drive though those small towns brought the context of the record into focus. The farm land outside of Murphysboro to the two stores and rusted cars of Vergennes to the once huge Consol mine to the renovation of the Opera House in Pinkneyville.... The album was born in these streets and the streets of Benton, Zeigler, and the trailer parks and PK's of Carbondale. Slow Dance paints a picture of Southern Illinois that isn't representative of the community as a whole, but one that is a reality for so many people. It paints a picture of the sparsely populated small towns, whose economy is still ravaged by the loss of the coal-mining industry, even as much as twenty years later, a picture that shows the lack of opportunity, lack of hope, and the overall stagnation of a people that for one reason or another are tied to the land and the area and can't get out, for whatever reason. It's a snapshot of those who frequent the bars and meth labs as a way to escape, and the abusive situations at home that arise as a result. Slow Dance is not a heavy-handed record by any means. Despite some of the subject matter, there's a lot of fun and energy in the songs. It's also not a protest record about economic conditions, it's just a reflection of this particular part of society, as the best art often is. In fact, this album most closely resembles Bruce Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town in it's depiction of blue-collar life. Slow Dance in the Kitchen opens with 'Grey Hair,' which starts off with acoustic guitar and vocals and unwinds into a melodic rocker where Tabing's lead trades off with the self-deprecating lines of the main protagonist of the song. 'Someday I'll wonder where it all went wrong/I just say I'm sorry and stumble across my breath and write me another song,' the main character proclaims. This illustrates another difference between the Jackhead of Whiskey Melted Glass with the Jackhead of today. Tabing's blazing solos are held in res
