Track Of The Day: Dege Legg
To celebrate the fact that the New Orleans Saints have made the Super Bowl for the first time in their history, Cajun muso Dege Legg is offering a song to download for free. So, this is the new Track Of The Day. Check out all the latest Tracks Of The Day at www.classicrockmagazine.com/tags/track-of-the-dayLegg is most known for being the mainman in the band Santaria, who describe their sound as ‘psyouthern hard rock’! Formed in 1994, since then for the Lousiana band it’s been, says, Legg, “Years of gigs, madness, tours, voodoo curses, wrecked vans, band members losing their minds and much more, detailed in the online Santeria Tour Journals, read by countless freaks across the world.”
Legg is to release his own solo album on February 16, called Folk Songs Of The American Longhair. It’s said to be very much in the tradition of the slide guitar Delta blues tradition, but with Legg’s own twist. He says: “Think Son House meets Leonard Cohen and a hoodoo séance in the swamps… raw dirt, railroad pounding, swamp-fried, Louisiana-meets-the-Mekong Delta blues music!”

And in the interest of fair play we should also offer a song in tribute to the Indianapolis Colts, who are the Saints opponents tomorrow (February 7). But we ain’t gonna be fair. So there!
