Savage Young Taterbug - Nitetrotter Session
Illustration Duane Jewett / Sound Engineering Nathan Gregory / Text Nathan Gregory - April 4, 2012
Everywhere you go everybody is synonymous with the name Taterbug. Young Charles Free of Iowa City and Des Moines, IA is the Savage Taterbug. He has the uncanny ability to make the most beautiful sounds lost in the lo-fi realm. This rare session we tracked with Taterbug is a fun step out of that realm. Just Taterbug and a old piano in our friends apartment in Pilsen. The words and sounds were so radiant that numerous people passing by stopped to heart this spectacle. By then end of the performance a small audience had been drawn into his lullaby. We will cherish this day and performance forever. I sent these tracks to Taterbug to let him check them out and his response was, "Cool, it sounds like Wilco." Enjoy this beauty.
Check out this sick video of this very intimate performace live.
