David Byrne, a noted fan, friend, and collaborator of artist and country musician Terry Allen, has written a new essay on his love for Terry and his album Lubbock (on everything) to accompany our reissue of the 1979 classic. Today Dangerous Minds has published the essay, titled “A Sleeping Bag In The West Texas Scrub,” in full. In it he discusses his own connections to Terry’s hometown of Lubbock, the first time he met Terry and his wife, actor and writer Jo Harvey Allen, and digs deep into his favorite songs on the record.
Terry and David have recorded and performed together, as well as collaborating on a Juarez musical theater piece (unproduced to date). Jo Harvey had a memorable role in Byrne’s 1986 film True Stories.
In case you missed it, Noisey recently published an in-depth interview with Terry that touches on how the reissues came about, what Lubbock is like today, and how the album’s themes have aged with him, and also shared a recent live video of Terry performing “New Delhi Freight Train” with The Panhandle Mystery Band, which you can watch below.
Stream the remastered audio of the song below.
