17 September 2015, No. 127, Hamilton Bohannon, ‘Bohannon’s Beat’

Here comes the mighty mighty Bohannon. “Bohannon’s Beat,” at No. 127 on our list as ordered by tempo, has a kind of simplicity and relentless guitar repetition that reminds me of krautrock. The four-on-top drums add to that sense, though I don’t think of four-on-top drums as being a characteristic of krautrock. I have this tune because Chris Carlin and I were making a mixtape together, and I copied all his source tracks. I wonder how Chris Carlin’s doing.
