MooPig Blues Department :: "Texas Blues as a Crime against Texans"

[Picture LINK]

Rife with Blues
mashed mixed articles by Pat Darnell  |  Aug 2, 2014  |  Bryan TX

If mothers knew how much long term brain damage contact football does to football players [of all ages] would they let their children play football? Football is rife with brain concussions, it is a rite of passage for footballers.

Do you think those mothers would allow their children to play the Blues, if they knew it is an art form that thrives on the locale where it is played? Yep, that's right. You can take the football away from the player, but you can't take the Blues out of the child. And that is a liability in Texas.

Tribute to the Lone Star State: Dispossessed Men and Mothers of Texas | Music News | Rolling Stone: "Most non-Texans tend to think of Texas people as blustering self-righteous assholes, to state it bluntly. That's more or less Janis Joplin's view of the people around the oil refinery town of Port Arthur, where she grew up rebellious and rejected. "Man, those people hurt me," she recalls bitterly. She painted and read poetry, and that made her different, weird. a freak in the eyes of civilized Texans. "I had a lot of hurts and confusions. You know, it's hard when you're a kid to be different. You're all full of things and you don't know what it's about.""

In the Lone Star State, if you have a non-conforming attitude about your life's direction, beware. There are plenty of Texas Southern Baptists and Ecumenical's ready to pounce on your shit.

You might have to have a yard sale and go west.

"... Texas is part of the Old South, but the further west you go across the state, the less prejudice and conservatism and general tight-assed-ness do you encounter. Which is sort of true nationally and may explain why so many Texas musicians have drifted as far west as they can go, to San Francisco. "All this propaganda that this was a free city, that you could dress or do anything anyway you wanted to, smoke dope without a lot of trouble – that's what brought them here," says Tracy Nelson, Mother Earth vocalist whose band is 75% Texan in origin. "They were really driven out of Texas, man. It's a really stupid bunch of clods back there and all the Texas cats I know hate that Texas mentality and all the bullshit."
"No question about Texas soul," Doug Sahm agrees. "But, listen, you pay, dues for that soulfulness. You pay dues for that soulfulness, man."
