Blues Brothers

When not exploding with Jon Spencer, Judah Bauer testifies with kin as 20 Miles

"I have to keep it that way, because I don't have huge bucketloads of talent to throw around, so I have to keep it tight," he says with a laugh. "Just playing with a guitar and drums, that was enough to try to write a song with that lineup. I couldn't really add a lot more to it because I thought the songs would lose focus. My singing is pretty limited. I can coast over the note on that. I try to work within a pretty narrow framework. Adding other stuff just throws me, because I can't tell if it's good. It's so easy to go into overkill. It's hardest to make it simple and make it good."

Even though Donovan Bauer (left) and brother Judah are white, theirs is one of only a couple of groups recording for Fat Possum, the label of 100-year-old black bluesmen. This speaks volumes of the duo's talents.
