“I was very reluctant to put this stuff out because there’s a ton of rootsy
cornballs out there doing this kind of stuff and all of them play guitar
way better than me. But I think I have something here that doesn’t really
sound like anything else. The numbers that bounce really bounce. The
numbers that drone really drone. I’m excited about this.”
-Danny Kroha
As a mainstay on the Detroit music scene for over thirty years, Danny
Kroha has consistently pushed himself to reinvention. As founding
member of garage legends the Gories, he’s influenced countless
imitators and poseurs. His axe work with Rocket 455 is the most
quintessentially “Detroit” rock and roll this side of the MC5. And his
turn as a pastied playgirl in the Demolition Doll Rods proved that
even in drag, he was undeniably solid. So with his first full-length
release under his own name, it may come as an unexpected turn that
he’s dealing in classic gospel and folk songs. Playing every instrument
himself, spanning guitar, banjo, baritone dulcimer, diddley bow,
washtub bass, jug and mouth organ, the end result is a collection of
compelling, timeless traditional songs. Angels Watching Over Me is
the real deal, seeming that it could’ve been recorded at any time over
the past 70 years. With this album, Kroha firmly establishes himself as
one of the pre-eminent practitioners of a genre in desperate need of
someone with his creativity and vision in moving forward the classic
American art form.
