Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods @ Atak, Enschede (NL) 30.06.2012

Very sorry folks, but no photos and resume of mister Siegal this night. Uuuuhhh! , There was a world-culture festival in Enschede which sidetracked our souls! You would like to know the cause??? Some beautiful graces with their Arabic belly-dances… They were sooo erotic*

Just to be kidding. Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods, a.k.a. Luther Dickinson from North Mississippi Allstars, Black Crowes, Cody Dickinson from the Allstars, Hill Country Revue and Alvin Youngblood Hart was a outstanding, exclusive line-up not to be missed. What a shame that the intimate small saloon of the Atak was not more attended. The Mudbloods started with a very dynamic performance of ‘Kingfish’. Ian was at his best on vocals and his guitar-play was thrilling. What was really a bit unexpected was that Luther and Alvin were rotating on guitar and bass. But they can play both by passion and in excellent manner.  And Mr. Youngblood Heart was contributing soulful, charismatic vocals. His outfit was like the one of Jim in the good-ole-movie Tom Sawyer with a trapper-leather-hat and bag which was posted at the micro-stand. The absolute crowns of songs were ‘The Train’ and ‘Bayou Country’ from the upcoming album to be released on 15th October 2012. The CD title was declared by Ian as top secret. Specially the second was a dedication to the swampy bayous. You were really feeling that by his music Ian is meanwhile more Cajun than British and by his love and devotion to the hot, humid Mississippi deltas. Luther was really exploding by the interpretation of ‘Rollin’ & Tumblin’, the Allstars-song. His vocals were heavy-rockin’ and the lunacy was his slide-play on his self-constructed coffeecan-guitar. You could hear boisterous screams of oh-yeah’s and clappin’, so excited were the freaks. Ian’s voodoo-session was by the title song of his actual cd ‘The Skinny’. His chant and six-string-slide-solos were to rise alligator-horror-sentience. The audience was to elecit by their stormily applause 2 encores, before the gig was finished like a tornado after more than and hour and a half. The aftershow was a conglomeration of fans and band for autographs, photos and small-talk. Regarding autographs, never ask Luther to sign with a red pen. He will not use one, this is a haunted signing-colour for him… Blues-Lovers who did not attend this mystery night don’t miss the second chance in November, when Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods will be on tour again for a second time in the Benelux.
