Blues For The Modern Daze


Provogue, 2012

Trout sounded hopping-mad on Modern Daze’s blistering polemic, surveying a wounded America in the grip of recession, oily hardright politician­s, Bible Belt bigots, environmen­tal disaster and braindrain TV. Moments like Money Rules The World, The Sky Is Fallin’ Down and Lifestyle Of The Rich And Famous were moments to rival the most eloquent protest singer, but Trout also found space for the personal on the beautifull­y observed Saw My Mama Cryin’. “That was my most political album by far,” he says. “I really had some stuff to get off my chest there. And I don’t know if I’ll ever match the statement I made with that album.”
