Artist Portrait

Eugene Chadbourne

voc, *1954 US, Mount Vernon, New York
Musician of Jazz and Rock
A.k.a. Eugene Alexander Chadbourne Doctor (12) Eddie Chatterbox Trio Fiddlin' U-jean

Born: January 4, 1954, Mount Vernon, New York On his compulsive own, Eugene Chadbourne (previously the guitarist and leader of Shockabilly) has spewed forth a ceaseless stream of records and cassettes (the latter on his own Parachute label) that easily represent the oddest version of country and folk music ever. While the notable left-winger's guitar playing is looser than clams, it harbors wildly unique energy. He also plays the electric rake. The North Carolinian is the master of several different voices, some of them deceptively sincere. Harsh, funny, irritating and packed with ideas, Chadbourne often suggests a politically correct Frank Zappa.
