Oh Death (by S&H, live, April 2013)

Well it isn't the first time I've posted this song to Metafilter Music. Nor is it the second, third or fourth. But, in my defense, I'd say that all of these versions are, well, rather different from each other, in their various ways. This fifth one is from my duo band S&H, and was recorded live at a little African restaurant in Shinjuku. Video here.

Oh Death

Once again, it's that song that I just can't stay away from. This time it's coming at you from the Hokuriku region: live in Kanazawa, Japan, from my trio, the Smoke Benders. Our tuba player Daysuke Takaoka is channeling the deep didgeridoo spirits on this one. Video here.

Oh Death (live, July 2010)

I just can't stay away from this song, it has a power over me. This time it's with my diddley bow (the Marron Glacé Guitar). At the end of the song, Death momentarily overtook me and made me attack the instrument with one of these. Video of this same performance at YouTube.

Oh Death (live)

In the very first hour of the brand new year of 2010, I was on a stage in Tokyo, part of Mike Watt's yearly "We Jam Econo" event, singing about death. Video of this same performance can be seen at YouTube or Vimeo. [more inside]

Oh Death

Here's my version of this most haunting of American folk songs. It's very stripped-down: just voice, drone, a bass drum and a shekere. In the time-honored folk tradition, I've made a few minor lyrics changes here and there, and the melody I'm using is different from the Dock Boggs or Stanley Brothers versions of the tune. Anyway, it's one of my very favorite traditional songs. Hope you enjoy.
