Money Where Your Mouth Is: Scissormen

Posted By on Thu, Feb 25, 2010 at 8:00 AM

This is the part of C-Notes where we yield the soapbox to an artist who has a way better rap than we do. This week, Tennessee wildman Ted Drozdowski — the Scissormen’s frontman. —D.X. Ferris

Band: Scissormen

Website: scissormen.com

Hometown: Nashville

Sounds Like: “John Lee Hooker back from the grave, plugged into a Marshall on 10 while the angels dance the jake-leg boogaloo. And that's just the first song.”

Fun Fact: “I can play slide guitar with almost any damn thing, and I have, including a pumpkin, a blowtorch, a full dinner plate, footwear, a light bulb, a cigarette pack and a 9 mm pistol. Bring what ya got. I dare ya!”

Playing: 9 p.m. Saturday at the Beachland Tavern. Opening for the Pierced Arrows (ex-Dead Moon) and Hell’s Information. Doors 8:30 p.m.; tickets $8 ADV/$10 DOS, all ages.

Why You Need to See Them: “A scalding live show that parts the clouds, makes your beer glasses magically fill themselves, shakes your moneymaker, summons the great spirits of the blues, who are bad mother — Hush your mouth! I'm just talkin' 'bout Son House and Muddy! — and can change your life.” --Ted Drozdowski, slide guitarist and howler
