Cooking dinner in your car

When Charlie Parr was set to release his LP Barnswallow with a two-night stand at the Cedar Cultural Center, he wanted to talk about something else in this interview with City Pages — specifically cooking food on the manifold of a car.

We remembered that story when we heard Charlie’s song on this double-disc/triple-LP compilation out next month, While No One Was Looking: Toasting Twenty Years of Bloodshot Records. His cover of “Manifold” by Devil in a Woodpile is one of thirty-seven tracks on the epic set — all kinds of people performed songs from the Bloodshot catalog, from Superchunk (“Come Pick Me Up”) to Chuck Prophet (Andre Williams’ awesome song “Dirt” from Hoods & Shades). There’s even a cover of “East Jefferson” by our friend Ben Weaver, but Charlie’s song was our favorite.
