Reviving raw – and sometimes a little raunchy — Southern Gothic.
The master story teller narrates his work himself. After 20 years of everybody buggin’ ‘im he gave in and did it. Because, no one else would. Or, in their words, “No one else could.” Well… maybe Will Patton.
If ya’ve ever had a real question as to just what Southern Goth’ is. Don’t rely on all these smart-ass definitions sayin’, “all it is a lot about how bad things are.”
It’s a way of writin’. It’s a way of connecting the existential with the grave. Hate and love. Life, with lots and lots of death, to words. Words like drum beats. Not the cliché’ writer’s beat. But, beats. Like on a drum. Short sentences. Periods — and not a lot of commas — are our sticks.
Words told in forests and fields. In fields where tragedy and comedy are guarded with riddles and told in the songs of goats and wounded legs. All set in a Grecian — slum style — southern shack.
Southern Goth’ exposes raw, horrible, and terrific beauty in the worst. We show with the invisible and hide with the visible. And in the words of that supreme book. A book for which there is no other greater in its Gothicness – as a mirror reveals a man’s face, so words reveal a man’s heart.
We show with motives — understanding meanness changes a man’s face to look like all angry men. And in, and with this, the word HELL — it’s letters — become a flesh covered rib-cage. The embodiment — in some cases –of hell on earth.
