Such folksy yarns would lay the songwriting framework for Back to Ohio Blues, once Raven returned to Columbus in and hooked up with a band that could musically illustrate his depraved visions. Recorded at the infamous Owl Recording Studio a space known for housing the one-off efforts of Ohio downer prophets like One St. Raven rants in a completely unhinged, spastic snot-spraying delivery, with sinister scuzz-guitar leads that rev like a thousand de-tuned Harleys. Consisting of improvised jams with no overdubs, the record is intensely pure, with an atmosphere akin to eavesdropping on a gathering of Midwestern devil worshippers.
That can tell you where I was! So it came to pass that a record initially pressed in the minuscule quantity of and given away or forced upon family members and friends by Raven has gone through more than one vinyl bootleg, dozens of illegal uploads and finally an official CD and vinyl reissue. While some may think Back to Ohio Blues has reached this stature because of the machinations of hoarder-geeks like the folks who recently compiled the brilliantly rendered Acid Archives collectors' guide, when you hear Raven and his new band, you'll know that, as always, it's about the music.
