Title: Hobo Monikers
Post by: btasoundsradio on September 01, 2006, 01:38:15 PM
A freight train artist named Khaze reproduces R. Crumb's "Heroes of the Blues" on freight trains all over North America. There has been a massive revival of Hobo Moniker's and freight art culture in this country, much of it containing folk and blues references and images.

What a super idea. One of those would have been ideal reproduced in the recent book by Paul Garon & Gene Tomko - "What's The Use of Walking If There's A freight Train Going You Way? Black Hobes & Their Songs" - especially since the "train blues" of most of those depicted are discussed.
