Another Sunday morning which means it’s time for a little music. I thought that for this week’s choice I would go with something a little further off the beaten track, going all the way up to Regina, Saskatchewan to grab this tune from the group The Dead South.
The song, In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company, is a song that I stumbled across awhile ago. I thought it was catchy and found the video engaging and fun. I’ve listened to it several times since and thought it would be a good song for today.
The accompanying painting is titled Confession and is from my Outlaws series. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over a decade since that group was painted. It was a relatively small and short lived series but I find myself going back to this group on a regular basis. Sometimes it’s just to look at the imagery and other times it’s to see how the narrative that I see in the image has changed over time.
There are pieces in the group where the narrative remains constant and others like this piece are a bit more ambiguous and open to new interpretations. This little painting always make me think.
Anyway, take look, give a listen and don’t worry if you think you’re going to Hell– there will be plenty of good company. Have a good day.
