    famed for his appearance in "Oh Brother Where Art Thou", I first heard him on a Blues compilation doing a hip hop infused version of Robert Johnson's "Crossroads, CTK 's version was dark and menacing and left me with a chill in my spine and a desire to find out more about him.
    I've now tracked down 4 of his CD@s and they are monsters, mixing acoustic delta blues picking with screaming Hendrixian guitar, P style funk, PE inspired hip hop and a song writing story telling voice to rival Tom Waits.

    And here's a rare full on live appearance from his controversial 2001 tour of Europe.
    "too radical" for US blues clubs and festivals, he went down a storm in Europe..[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
