- eugene chadbourne and the dropouts: zupa dupa kupa
(2012, lp, poland, monotyperecords monolp 007)
Recorded in the U.S.A. with a bunch of fellow musicians and released (on vinyl !) on the Polish MonotypeRec label, “Zupa Dupa Kupa” brings new material by Eugene Chadbourne.
You get Eugene Chadbourne in a familiar setting: fingerpicking on an acoustic guitar, and singing his folky, bluesy songs about the things he (dis)likes.
And quite good it is, “Zupa Dupa Kupa”.
I still don’t have a clue to what the album title refers to, but I like what I hear.
It may sound pretty straight-forward to those who are familiar with Doctor Chadbourne’s output, but it’s also a good starting point for those who have never heard the man.
