It is time, amigos, for a new Dom Flemons post. Three years ago I wrote about him when he had just made the big move Out East. Now, I'm happy to report that Dom is continuing with his Conquest of the World. With his current band, Carolina Chocolate Drops, he is touring the world. Word has it he's Big In Europe, which he should be. I just caught up with him in NYC, where we ate some slices and he played old accordion. Then, back in his room, he played Peruvian-style wind pipes with blues guitar. The kid is wild, and the kid is going to blow up. It inspired me to dig out some old video of him I shot at his request back in 2004. I was renting a room in a small house in Flagstaff, I sat him down, got creative with the lighting, and let the borrowed camera roll. Back then (way oh so back then in 2004) there was no YouTube, except for those real, organic, gooey tubes of yours. So I sat on the video. Until now (cue drums).
Here's Dom. There's more here.
