I'm a young dude. I'm 37.
37 too but teenager forever!
My story's kinda the same. Living in some out of the way village and listening to alternative music. I was just lucky to find out about this like 14 years ago. I think it was '96 when I was amazed to find out there were still blues men who were playing the blues old style, most of them on Fat Possum records. One of 'em, R.L. Burnside, collaborated with Jon Spencer.
Googling Jon Spencer eventually led me to grunnenrocks.nl
At that time I think there were only listed like 150 bands or something and they were all good. The difficulty was which one to buy first.
Later I also got to knowabout all this obscure music made in the 50's and 60's.
