Ok, so it took until April, and it’s still a work in progress, but the 2013 version of Made by Fred is now live… Please bear with me as I work out the kinks and update the Projects section.
I first heard this album on NPR’s Firs Listen a few weeks ago. Ever since then I’ve been obsessed with Bombino’s music. It’s too bad I don’t understand his lyrics, but as the cliche goes: the music speaks for itself. The album cover is pretty awesome too, wheelie-ing a vintage motorcycle in the desert with a stratocaster and a cape pretty much ticks all the boxes.
Big Sur has been near the top of my ‘places to visit’ list for a while now. This video didn’t do anything to change that, but it did make me long for a sidecar motorcycle. Maybe I could even ride through the long Vermont winter if I had three wheels?
