“We argue sometimes, but we never argue about Big Bill
Broonzy,” says Dave Alvin when explaining why he and brother Phil, who
haven’t made an album together in almost 30 years, were inspired to
record ‘Common Ground'. The Alvin brothers, who founded seminal early LA
punk roots band The Blasters in 1979, have shared a fascination with
Broonzy since childhood. After an illness nearly took Phil’s life in
2012, they resolved to return to the studio and pay tribute to the blues
‘Common Ground’ includes 12 songs that
capture a 30-year cross section of Broonzy’s canon, performed by the
Alvins’ in their signature style of rollicking roots and stomping
Though this is their first album
together in decades, the Alvin brothers collaborated last year on ‘Ghost
Brothers of Darkland County,’ the critically acclaimed “southern gothic
supernatural musical” by Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone
Burnett. They also sang a duet on “What’s Up With Your Brother” for
Dave’s last Yep Roc release ‘Eleven/Eleven.’
