***For SIMON JOYNER'S tenth proper album, he's joined by his working OMAHA BAND, THE FALLEN MEN. What they've created is a dark, rock-and-roll, beginning or ending of an era, seven leaf catalogue of people (skeletons) and their troubles (blues). Sounding like DOUG YULE-era VELVET UNDERGROUND, DYLAN with THE BAND (or is it NEIL YOUNG and CRAZY HORSE?), and SISTER LOVERS damaged BIG STAR, this is unlike any other Simon Joyner record. The song cycle begins with a cobblestone street inviting a man in an open window to splash the bricks below, to the cadence of "It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)", and ends with a man walking down the street waiting for the rain to wash him clean. In between is all the news fit to sing. Joyner knows it takes a worried man to sing a worried song and the songs here are certainly worried, peopled by bruised lives, but make no mistake, this is not hopeless music.
