Luke Escombe – Skeleton Blues

"Luke Escombe – Skeleton Blues"

Skeleton Blues lays bare the key influences in Luke Escombe’s music. It includes covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan, as well as two electrifying renditions of the old spirituals ‘O Death’ and ‘John the Revelator,’ Although presenting a more serious side to his song writing, there is still a healthy dose of Luke’s sly humour in the first single ‘Punctuation Blues,’ a track which combines a Lightning Hopkins-inspired guitar groove with such lines as ‘punctuation is like making love/ you gotta know when to put it in,’ Meanwhile, previously released songs such as ’21st Century Blues,’ ‘Confidence,’ and ‘Axe in the House’ take on a deeper meaning when stripped of their band backings. As the title suggests, these are songs which have been cut down to their very bones.
