Always A Bit Janky
It ain't perfect but it ain't bad
"When I die, they’ll say
‘He couldn’t play guitar for sh*t...,
but he sure made it sound good.'"
– Hound Dog Taylor
"Janky," or Scott Lindsey, digs deep into the roots of the blues while adding respectful touches that would hopefully appease the great blues legends like Son House, Blind Lemon Jefferson, John Lee Hooker, RL Burnside, Junior Kimbrough and Reverend KM Williams. These days, the blues genre is far from its roots, and most people have never heard the real blues. Janky doesn't intend on sounding just like his inspirations – it would be impossible anyway. Janky interprets and jumps off from the roots of blues music.
Janky is originally from Shreveport, LA but has been a strong contributor to the music scene in Dallas, TX for many years. Besides recording music in his home studio, Janky currently plays guitar and sings for The 1969s and Them Grackles. He also plays bass for the amazing Trainreck and is currently under the music tutelage of Reverend KM Williams.
Janky: "Why you so hard on me, bossman?"
Reverend KM Williams: "When I am done with you, you gonna be a real blues man."
Janky: "Yes, sir."
Influences: Junior Kimbrough, RL Burnside, Son House, Mississippi Fred McDowell, John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Reverend KM Williams, Magic Sam

I was lucky enough to jam with two great blues greats in one night. Good times all around. Most people outside of Mississippi do not know what “Jukin’” means. These days gigs or music performances are mostly bands that rehearse and prep and tell their friends and charge cover and do flyers and tweet what[…]
