Dog Soldiers is also really good.
She came up when I searched Louisiana authors, I guess it's just because she uses it as a setting.

Amédé Ardoin

A Creole and zydeco musical pioneer and a Cajun accordion virtuoso born in the late 19th Century.







Chilling beautiful music. The vocals are very closely tied to the sounds of Francophone west African music.

Fats Domino

Whatever you might think today it was wild af

Drunk and new to integration, youth took to giant brawls at his concerts

He was an early force for everything we hold dear back in a time when weighing 200 lbs was considered outrageous

Slim Harpo



Swamp blues musician born in 1924.



I'm a King Bee was originally a B-side released in 1957.

It was later covered by The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd around the same time. The Stones version came out a few months before Floyd’s.

^ The Stones also covered "Shake Your Hips" by Slim Harpo, on their "Exile on Main St." album.

And I'm pretty sure the title of their first live album, "Got Live If You Want It!" was derived from the song "I Got Love If You Want It" by Slim Harpo.

Here's an alternate take of "I Got Love If You Want It" by the man, himself...

He’s got a really hypnotic voice and maintains the spell by keeping the instrumentation simple and minimalistic. On I’m a King Bee for the guitar solo he plays the same note three times and goes back to the verse. ****ing brilliant.

Jimmie Davis

Here’s a bit of trivia: The guy who wrote You Are My Sunshine also served two terms, separated by more than a decade, as Governor of Louisiana. Even though he recorded with African American musicians he supported segregation as a politician. He wrote a graduate dissertation at LSU titled Comparative Intelligence of Whites, Blacks and Mulattoes but I can’t find the actual text. He lived for an entire century.

It turns out The Residents are from Shreveport, Louisiana.

They’ve never really resonated with me and that makes them hard to write about in this context. Anybody wanna have a “good faith” discussion about this band?
