Lubbock on Everything

Lubbock, TX. Buddy Holly. Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Joe Ely.

And then there's Terry Allen.

Terry is a conceptual multimedia country artist, if there is such a thing. Born in Kansas, bred in Lubbock, educated in L.A., and now in Santa Fe, Terry writes wry lyrics about art, good ole boys, pillpopping and the Nashville country establishment, among other things. And he's a sculptor. I actually got the chance to meet and talk with him when I was getting my mfa in New Orleans in 1997. Nice enough guy, very unassuming. At the time, I was undergoing a small existential conflict about Art, so when I heard this song on a wonderful country show on WWOZ, It really hit a nerve:

Well I give up all my sculpturing
'Cause my life had gone all sad
An I went to work down at the factory
It weren't art...but it weren't bad
So They put me on the assembly line
Puttin plastic leaves on the plastic palms
Then they shipped them off the Los Angeles
Yeah it weren't art...but it weren't wrong
Now some say it's pathetic
When you give up your aesthetic
For a blue collar job in the factory
But all that exhibiting
Was just too damn inhibiting
For a beer drinking
Regular me
