Mr Bo Weavil is the direct heir to Bo Weavil, once hailed as the best blues band in France by no less than Ben Harper. Matthieu Fromont has chosen to continue his musical voyage solo this time, writing all of the tracks of this new album. Matthieu also illustrates his instrumental proficiency on this As a Striving Lonesome Bull, playing guitar, bass, percussion, banjo, Jew's harp, flute and drum loops. A gifted alchemist, he throws into his blues mix a touch of rock, a pinch of rap, and a few drops of African gris-gris. A total success!
