    Appealing directly to my tastes for western swing
    and cajun cowboy country, Next Time sees Pickens
    and Baz trading songs and vocals and playing just
    about everything besides drums and fiddle....Baz and
    Pickens have put together a little gem of a record.

about

Byron Bay, Australia (where we live) is famous for its simply incredible ‘East Coast International Blues & Roots Festival’ – there’s nothing like it in the world. In the nearby one-horse town of Billinudgel there is a classic old Aussie Pub where, for some years now, they have gone head-to-head with the huge Byron Blues Fest with a quirky mini-Festival of their own at Easter time, which they call (in quintessential Aussie style) the “Billinudgel Boozed and Rooted Festival”, and we’re privileged to have performed at both. When we returned to Norway in 2004 we played at another unique music festival, ‘Sement Blues’, held bi-annually in the quaint village of Kjopsvik, a traditional community situated on a breathtakingly beautiful fjord in the far north, just about directly opposite on the planet from Billinudgel. The Sement Blues festival is the brainchild of Freddie Iversen (of Arctic Music), a real gentleman and true blues lover who moved to tiny Kjopsvik when he fell in love with his beautiful wife Liv who is the nurse there. Nearly everyone in Kjopsvik (now including Freddie) works in the massive cement works that looms over the town, and the windows often rattle from the blasting for the cement powder, in the surrounding hills. While everyone was out getting drunk on the last night of Sement Blues ‘04, I stayed home and wrote two songs in the basement of Freddie’s house – this is one of them.
