Karl Williams: Sheoak Shack, Saturday

He was born into a non-musical family and named after a criminal from the future. But who can be bothered to unravel the twisted line that led Karl S Williams to the blues and perverted him into a guitar-slinging, banjo-wielding freak with a penchant for hellfire, heavenly salvation, and writing about himself in the third person?

However it went, he is grateful for it all. Lord have mercy!
