Pat MacDonald's "Purgatory Hill"

If you have  any interest in the following buy this album: americana, Captain Beefheart, Hound Dog Taylor, Howling Wolf. He uses this new, primitive sounding instrument in which you slide down on two thick dowels, with two strings a piece on each. See a picture of it here. He also plays his lonely harmonica.

MacDonald is best known for his hilarious mid-80s  anti-nuclear hit "The Future's So Bright I Gotta Wear Shades"with the group he led, Timbuk 3.
