More Sean Costello cuts

Some songs to listen to. Man, I'm gonna miss this guy's blistering guitar work, that growling voice and the only sideburns longer than mine... We've now posted a cool picture and an eerie song sample with the news story.

I interviewed him twice. Once was in 2000, when I was a newbie at the Ledger. The other time was in 2006. They were both short chats, but he was insightful, forthcoming, and seemed to be generally tickled that he'd found a way to make a living playing one of America's least popular styles of music since he was in high school.

Was he frustrated that he couldn't find a wider audience? I asked him.

"It's only frustrating that there's so much bad music out there," he said.

The way he played the guitar, I half suspect he made some deal with the devil at the crossroads (Peachtree and Peachtree?). Sure hope not. But heck, all our friends are down there anyway, right?

The cuts are all from the last record, out earlier this year.
