Episode 45: Danny Green – Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy / Ease Down the Road

Episode 45 is now up on ๐Ÿ, Stitcher, google play and TuneIn! Today’s guest is London, UK’s Danny Green of the bands DG Solaris and Laish. Green shared a record that has played a pivotal role in his own explorations of songwriting: Louisville, Kentuckyโ€™s Will Oldham (AKA Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy)’s 2001 LP “Ease Down the Road.”

We spent a considerable amount of time attempting to dissect the lyrical meaning behind the songs on this record. Be forewarned: Bonnie Prince Billy’s lyrics are dark, bawdy and perhaps not for the faint of heart. Our conversation surely earned its explicit rating in the land of podcasts.

We had several laughs throughout at BPB’s lyrical construction and documentation of sexual escapades, and I hope you laugh along with us. Enjoy! Itโ€™s a brilliant record. ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ‘‹ #BonniePrinceBilly #WillOldham #EaseDowntheRoad #DragCityRecords #CovertoCoverwithMT #covertocoverconversations
