Gitkin - Whiskey Road (Five Star Motel)
Gitkin re-branded, sold and traded knock-off Gibson guitars. It took him to most corners of the USA, passing through big, smoggy cities and nowheresville small towns. His nights were spent at not-so-salubrious motels, places where he’d cross paths with newcomers and immigrants to the States from all four corners of the globe. His illicit musical wares were his way of making a connection. He’d strike up tentative, half-understood exchanges; part old stories and legends, part musical dialogue, part rough-and-ready riffs. There is a Sudanese influence on Whiskey Road. The Jumbush is used on this along with electric guitar.
