Gone Away Backward

(robbie fulks)


In the mid-1990s, Chicago-based artist Robbie Fulks became known as a sharper-than-a-tack, wry genius staple of the alternative country scene. Today – after ten releases spanning the varied shades of twang, somber yet pop-conscious roots-rock, and even Michael Jackson covers – he leaves behind the amplifier and drumkit driven songwriting which defined his mode. Fulks’s new release Gone Away Backward, returns to the folk and bluegrass sounds that once captured the imagination of a little boy who first picked up a banjo at age seven.
