Citizen John - The Black Sorrows

THE BLACK SORROWS
‘WEDNESDAY’S CHILD’
(taken from Citizen John album out 29 March 2019 through Bloodlines)

There’s a lot of dark destiny on The Black Sorrows’ latest ‘n’ arguably greatest album Citizen John.

The Black Sorrows’ undulating landscape of human toil and folly can be felt throughout; joy and sorrow; love and loss, from the high plains daydreaming of ‘Worlds Away’ to the palm-fronded bandstand jazz of ‘Play It Sentimental’.

It’s also riding there on the boot-heels and wagon wheels of the rain-soaked black-country panorama of ‘Wednesday’s Child’, and marching alongside ‘Brother Moses Sister Mae’: a fable of two hobos in love, staggering on the brass coattails of the ‘Horns Of Leroy’.

The slow, seductive intro to ‘Wednesday’s Child’ creates the mood where you know something’s coming. You can feel it; in the air, in your gut. And you don’t sleep at night. The voice in your head is telling you that something is going to go terribly wrong and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.

Now a cool 21 albums down the line, Joe Camilleri’s The Black Sorrows are at the peak of their game with this new album; with roots in that familiar terrain of sweet, platinum radio rhythm and blues, and dark reflections of modern times.

To Joe Camilleri there is only one album that matters. All that came before — six decades worth of songs that flow like molten gold through the annals of Australian music — has been leading to this expertly crafted world of soul and intrigue.
