A clean-up

man

A musicologist notes, "The tunings are unfathomable. It is as if Blind Lemon Joy reinvented the guitar as an instrument ... a surgical instrument, used for applying lobotomies."

Blind Lemon Joy disappeared, Phoenix-like, as quick as the fart in a swimming pool that was his arrival. He faded into obscurity very quickly. He dissipated.

Yet, he is still remembered in parts of Spain.

 

Not for his music, of course, but for his incredible run down the streets of Pamplona ... two weeks AFTER the annual Running of the Bulls of the Festival of San Fermin.

Why he ran is still a question. Perhaps there is a clue in his song, "Hallucinations I Can't See:"

It's a question of identity,

For if I knew which one was me

I wouldn't have to obfuscate

I'd just lie down and ..."

The film though, and the recordings with dbFox, they are real. The film is 10 minutes of computer animation, for which the animator possibly also sacrificed his vision (physical and spiritual).

"There is kind of a primitive something-or-other about the work," said Kwang the Inscrutable, a Tibetan film critic who never actually saw the film. Neither did its star.
