Paul Thorn at the Ark

 

continued

The songs on Thorn's latest album may be his best yet, because he let some of them come close to home. "Pimps and Preachers" tells of a man whose father was "Satan's angel" but whose uncle "worked for the Lord"--Thorn's own situation, but with the role models reversed. What becomes of the son?

Now I'm standing on the corner,

Recruiting hungry seekers.

I'm starting a new religion:

I call it Pimps and Preachers.

Its philosophy: "Get out there in the game. Don't sit up in the bleachers." Paul Thorn has certainly done that with his music, fearless and hugely entertaining at the same time.    (end of article)
