Jim O’Rourke – Bad Timing

Bad Timing

Jim O’RourkeBad Timing Drag City DC120 (1997)

If you followed what Jim O’Rourke was up to with Gastr del Sol, his fascination with John Fahey so evident on Bad Timing should come as no surprise.  It’s a decent album, perhaps a bit bland.  The thing is, why not just listen to a Fahey album instead?  Anyway, O’Rourke would go on to bigger and better things in the next few years, particularly the magnificent Halfway to a Threeway and Insignificance.
