About T-Model Ford
On a label known for its raw blues, T-Model Ford stands out as the rawest of the bunch. His 2002 album, Bad Man, was a little less ragged than his first three albums. Those records -- Pee Wee Get My Gun (1997), You Better Keep Still (1999) and She Ain't None of Your'n (2000) -- trudge along on extremely distorted, repetitive guitar riffs, with T-Model's voice dripping menace, normally only accompanied by spare drums courtesy of a guy named Spam. T-Model's blues usually elicit such terms as "harsh" and "stark" -- basically for folks who like their Delta blues dirty.
