Searching for the Wrong-Eyed Jesus

Jim White's Chevy

Finally got around to purchasing the DVD of this brilliant documentary:

SEARCHING FOR THE WRONG-EYED JESUS is a captivating and compelling road trip through the creative spirit of the South featuring 'Alt Country' singer Jim White and his beaten-up Chevy Impala drifting past churches, trailer parks, prisons, truck stops, biker bars and coalmines to a superb musical soundtrack. Jim's roadside encounters with musical mavericks like the Handsome Family, Johnny Dowd, David Eugene Edwards, ex-New York Doll David Johansen and Melissa Swingle add to the atmosphere with their live performances. Plus there's old time banjo player Lee Sexton; rockabilly mountain gospel choirs and novelist Harry Crews telling grisly stories down a dirt track.

More good news about Jim White. He told me last night after the Hellwood show in Amsterdam that there will be a new album in March.
