I'm Wounded! I Don't Think So!
From out of the South Carolina swamps comes folk artist and home recording legend Charlie McAlister. Charlie's unique brand of homemade lo-fi Psycho Dixie music, released on innumerable self-produced cassettes, has inspired hordes of 4-track enthusiasts since his debut in the mid 80's. With banjo, toy drums, broken guitars, TV samples and kitchenware, McAlister delivers instantly-catchy songs and sound collage that fall somewhere between Woody Guthrie and Andre Breton. Finally, the bizarre, yet charming work of this crazed backwoods genius is available on CD Baby. With I'm Wounded! I Don't Think So!, his infamous "breakup" album, Charlie works through his emotions over a failed relationship the best way he knows how. But don't look for emo here - erstwhile galfriends can't take the fight out of this stout fisherman! Swerving from the beautiful melancholy of Clouds and Pink Ice Cream to the depression of Reaching for My Own Throat to the inspirational rebirth of Single in the Springtime and Nothing Can Stop Me Now, Charlie works through all twelve steps of his recovery in record time. I'm Wounded! Is possibly the most raw and powerful of McAlister's many recordings, featuring some of his best songwriting and performing. Included is a booklet of Charlie's therapeutic drawings. Not for the faint of heart!
