UK Americana's psycho...wonderfully warped... 4 stars! MOJO. UK His cracked larynx, jagged guitar & spooky organ eking out gothic tales laced with black humor. Time Out London. UK On the back road to Hell's front door, Johnny Dowd is the point when you know there's no turning back. His tangled cobweb of dark tales bursting with the debris of life's lost dreams, broken hearts and everything left behind by sinners on the run. Johnny Dowd albums are like a variety show of death, despair, and mutual suffering... rendered with a sly humor, the kind of wry smile you see through the executioner's mask as the clock strikes midnight. Johnny Dowd's 50 year overnight success story is already folklore. In 1997, recording after hours in the offices of the moving company he runs and drives truck for in Ithaca, NY, Johnny self-releases Wrong Side Of Memphis, a bone-chilling lo-fidelity country-blues epiphany riveting in it's power.
