Calvin Johnson - What Was Me
The first Calvin Johnson solo album, What Was Me, originally released on in 2002, remastered and reissued on LP in 2020 with hot new cover art!
What Was Me collects ten bits of lifeness and spreads them thickly with voice and acoustic guitar; acapella 40% of the time. There are patches that are worn and threadbare but the overall effect is gutty and moist. The affect is also noteworthy. Calvin is joined by the K divas Mirah on 'Ode to St. Valentine' and Beth Ditto (the Gossip) on 'Lightnin’ Rod for Jesus.'
Calvin is also known for his work with Beat Happening, Dub Narcotic Sound System and Halo Benders. He has performed all over the country and the world, in basements, gymnasiums, theatres, art galleries, nightclubs, city parks, coffee shops, outdoor amphitheaters, hotel lobbies and ice cream stands.
