Alex Chilton's Feudalist Tarts (1985) found the Big Star/Box Tops frontman re-making himself as a southern fried hipster offering up original tunes like "Stuff" and sly soulful covers "B-A-B'Y" and "Thank You John," while adding a horn section to his road-tested rhythm section. Side Two features a number of rare Chilton tracks including "Rubber Room" and "Wild Kingdom."
Chilton had hit rock bottom in his home town of Memphis after 15 years of substance abuse and hard partying. He chose New Orleans as the city where he would re-make himself.
One of the benefits was exposure to all the music he would hear down there. He immediately immersed himself in the city's laid back, stretched out grooves. The covers he chose for this record were songs he heard being played by older musicians around New Orleans.
This comeback EP, released after a five-year album silence, is a fine and rootsy delight worthy of its artist's reputation...This release is well worth hearing.
