Loudon Wainwright III - Older Than My Old Man Now album flac

Loudon Snowden Wainwright III (born September 5, 1946) is an American songwriter, folk singer, humorist, and actor. He is the father of musicians Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, and Lucy Wainwright Roche; brother of Sloan Wainwright; and former husband of the late folksinger Kate McGarrigle. Wainwright released a new studio album, Older Than My Old Man Now, in April 2012. Wainwright's first marriage, to the singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle, ended in divorce. During their marriage, they had two children, Rufus and Martha. Rufus was the inspiration behind two of Wainwright's songs: "Rufus Is a Tit Man" (referring to Rufus during breastfeeding) and "A Father and a Son," a retrospective.

Two of the songs from the album, "Older Than My Old Man Now" and "The Days That We Die", feature spoken word performances of prose written by Loudon Wainwright Jr. for Life magazine in the early 80s. Regarding his father's influence on Older Than My Old Man Now and the inclusion of his writing, Wainwright noted, "He died in 1988, and I have powerful memories of him. He was a huge presence in my life, and we had difficulties. very typical father-son oedipal clashes, but he was a remarkable guy, and a fine writer.

LW3's dad was Loudon Wainwright Jr, a senior journalist at Life magazine. And we all know there comes a time in every chap's life when he has to face up to the reality of his old man, whether we like it (or him) or not. Just ask Rufus Wainwright. LW3's dad was Loudon Wainwright Jr, a senior journalist at Life magazine. What? Of course Rufus is on it.

Loudon Wainwright III. Older Than My Old Man Now. Overview (current section).

In the autumn of 1994, I found myself in Edinburgh, Scotland, playing at the Fringe Festival. One day, I stopped in at Reptile Records and bought three cassette tapes: Preservation: Act One by The Kinks; The Best of The Move ; and. Career Moves, the second live album by Loudon Wainwright III. I listened to them on an old Walkman with airport headphones while trying to keep at bay the forces that had transformed our band’s otherwise pleasant tour into one fraught with emotional struggles. After an evening show at the university, I threw down my guitar and refused to come back for an encore

At 65, Loudon Wainwright III is older than his father ever was, and it's got him thinking, and writing, and singing. As he puts it, the new album deals with 'death 'n' decay' and he's approached the subject from all angles, with his customary insight, honesty, and rueful humor. But pondering the imponderables can be a lonely business, and so, like never before, Loudon has brought in friends and family to help him with the heavy lifting.

There are 14 new songs here, along with an exquisite ballad he wrote with Kate McGarrigle back in the 70s, all dealing with "death'n'decay". And it works, thanks to his bleak wit, his ability to match thoughtful lyrics against varied, mostly blues-based settings, and help from special guests.

Loudon Wainwright III’s 22nd album extends the folk-rock autobiography that’s made his body of work so impressive. It’s a saga filled with Oedipal tension (his dad was a famed journalist, his son is Rufus Wainwright) and fraught love (ex-wives Kate McGarrigle and Suzzy Roche are folk icons). The Days That We Die, featuring a passage written by his father with Rufus on vocals, and I Remember Sex captures the emotional range – from heart aching reflection to wry acceptance. It’s riveting stuff; here’s hoping the story doesn’t end for a long time. Related, Photos: Random Notes.
