Brick Briscoe: From Lucky Point to Père Lachaise

Musician Brick Briscoe puts his experience as a radio and television host to good use for his new album From Lucky Point to Père Lachaise, a travelogue describing a journey to France, after having received treatment for cancer. Starting in his hometown Petersburg, IN (Lucky Point) he paid visits Chicago, Boston, New York, Paris, Bordeaux,before heading back to the States. After two short tracks that set the tone for the album Briscoe puts on his storytelling hat, telling tales about love, history, and art.

He has a soft spot for late Eighties college rock, the gnarly yet melodic kind that was championed by the Pixies, Chuck Prophet and Hüsker Dü, with plenty of ad lib comments sprinkled on top. From Lucky Point to Père Lachaise is an album that should be listened to in full, so set aside 35 minutes and 33 seconds, pull the curtains, and follow him on his journey. He knows he will die, but that did not stop him from creating an intense set of linked songs.
