Eugene Chadbourne Career

Life and career

Chadbourne was born in Mount Vernon, New York, but he grew up in Boulder, Colorado. He began playing guitar when he was eleven or twelve, inspired by the Beatles and keen to capture girls's attention. Despite being attracted to Jimi Hendrix and performed in a garage band, he discovered that rock and pop music was too traditional. Anthony Braxton and Derek Bailey's avant-garde jazz attracted him. Braxton advised Chadbourne not to pursue journalism but rather focus on music.

He stayed in Canada during the early 1970s to avoid military service in the Vietnam War. He migrated to the United States in the mid 1970s and performed free improvisation with Henry Kaiser and John Zorn. Solo Acoustic Guitar, his first album, was released around this time. He formed Shockabilly, with Mark Kramer and David Licht in the early 1980s.

At a festival in Winnipeg, Chadbourne tried different genres, including a Cajun band and a Russian folk band. In the band LSD C&W, he mixed country, Western, and experimentation. Jimmy Carl Black, who played drums for Frank Zappa, was in a duo for many years. He has also worked with Han Bennink, Fred Frith, Elliott Sharp, and Charles Tyler.

Songs (Intakt, 1993), a solo album, featured politically oriented originals, including "Knock on the Door" and "Hello Ceausescu," as well as "Thoughts of Mary Jane" by Nick Drake and "This Cold War With You."

Chadbourne invented the electric rake by attaching an electric guitar pickup to a rake. On Bob Wiseman's 1991 album On Wiseman's 1991 album Presented by Lake Michigan Soda, he performed a duet of electric rake and classical piano. On a Sun Ra tribute album, he performed the instrument.
