Casey Reid – Cephalclog


Casey Reid was only with Big Muddy Records for a short time before leaving to pursue other interests, but during that time he left us a masterpiece. Cephalclog is a twisted collection of spastic poetry that looks deep inside the protagonist’s conflicted but strong spirit over a barrage of folk, country, blues and rock influences. This album was the first time that the Big Muddy session team got together and features Joey Glynn on guitjo, Ryan Koenig on his earliest harmonica tracks as well as organ and piano, and Kristo Baricevic producing a junkyard percussion ensemble. You will find haunting tracks paired wonderfully with orchestral cello and rowdy rockers highlighted by Chris Powers’ upright bass. A diamond in the rough.
