A Match Made in Heaven: Uncle Dave and Ogre
  • A Match Made in Heaven: Uncle Dave and Ogre

Printmaker and Vanderbilt professor Mark Hosford says he listens to music every second he is making art. His collection is so large that he had a hard time narrowing it down, but he mentioned country music pioneers Uncle Dave Macon and Jimmie Rodgers in the same breath as industrial pioneers Skinny Puppy. How could I resist making a playlist with that kind of variety? The results are posted below.

Keep your eye out for more about Hosford next month — the Nashville Print Revival takes place on Feb. 21-23, and his role there is pivotal. We're planning extensive coverage of the event, and we can only hope it salvages some of Hosford's twangy/brutal musical influence.

Uncle Dave Macon, "Sail Away Ladies"

Skinny Puppy, "Smothered Hope"

Skinny Puppy, "Assimilate"

Jimmie Rodgers, "Waiting for a Train"

Jimmie Rodgers, "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine"
