Cover of Salesmen & Racists
Ike Reilly‘s a tremendously talented singer and songwriter. I first became aware of his talent when I got Cracker‘s great Countrysides record — my favorite track, by far was “Duty Free” — when I read the liners, I realized I had to check this Ike Reilly guy out, so I picked up his first record, Salesmen & Racists, almost immediately — and wasn’t let down (though I was confused by how “Duty Free” seemed to have a whole new set of lyrics, but more on that later). Ike’s new record is the outstanding Hard Luck Stories, which just came out on CD last February. Kittysneezes is lucky to have Ike sit down with us and talk about his new album, comedy, and the middle name “Ray”.
