Roy Ruth is about a man estranged from his source,
replacing memories of desert farming
with movement and writing.
Using old motorcycles across asphalt roads,
the five-year journey is told in six parts by Roy Ruth.
The first three parts of Roy Ruth are, Austin Mass,
and Acts I and II of Runway Coyote Cash.
All three were scored by the Austin Potwashers.
Parts IV and V of Roy Ruth
are Premium Sun in the Redwoods
and Nightman in a Winter Valley.
Both were scored by the Oakland Potwashers.
Part VI is an epilogue,
Dearest Mechanical God Above,
twenty years after the fact.
Roy Ruth has a rough signature
to its soundscape, a sort of …
Gershwin-Floyd Cramer-Rock & Roll panorama.
A European spy believes
it’s an American motorcycle epic.
Maybe it is.
Hope you enjoy the sound . . .
