Chuck describes the album as “California Noir.” He says, “the state has always represented the Golden Dream, and it’s the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. Doomed love, inconsolable loneliness, rags to riches to rags again, and fast-paced violence are always on the menu on the Left Coast.” Just like Bobby Fuller, he’s the star of the ultimate Rock and Roll Babylon feel-bad story. Fuller, who migrated from El Paso to L.A. in the early 1960s, Found stardom with his hit “I Fought The Law” and found dead in his car at the age of 23. Ruled a suicide, his death has haunted investigators since 1966. “Some resolution would be nice,” Prophet says, “but I run a band, not a Cold Case squad.”

The Mission Express, Prophet’s band, which includes his wife Stephanie Finch have provided the backing on the road for the last 15 years and for the first time on his album which was recorded at the Hyde St. Studios in the heart of the Tenderloin, walking distance from his home. In addition to the Mission Express he recorded with Brad Jones, Paul Q. Kolderie, and Matt Winegar riding herd.” Hyde Street was also a homecoming of sorts. “I did my first session there, in high school no less,” says Prophet. He even dragged out his ’64 Stratocaster, a guitar that Jonathan Richman said sounds, “like gasoline in the sand, like a motorcycle at a hot dog stand.” Over 10 solo albums under his belt and many more with his former band, Green on Red, Chuck Prophet is just beginning to near the top of his game so don’t miss him.
