Jack Rose - RIP
Avant Ghetto has brought to my attention that Jack Rose has died of a heart attack. Jack started out in a drone band called Pelt back in the 90s, but had developed a sizable reputation for his ragtime-meets-psychedelic solo records. Three Lobed Recordings released a bulk of his recordings, like Rose’s excellent Black Dirt Sessions. Arthur magazine has some good videos of Rose live.
Here are two great tracks from Jack. The first is from the Black Dirt Sessions, the second from his Red Horse, White Mule record.
