Tommy Malone appears on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Creative Arts Center on the campus of West Virginia University.
The prime mover behind the New Orleans swamp-rock band The Subdudes, Malone has been a fixture in the Louisiana music scene and beyond for 40 years. He began in a family band that included his brother, Radiators guitarist Dave Malone, and worked as a sideman; he also helped found the storied music collective The Continental Drifters.
Tommy Malone's third and most recent solo album, Poor Boy, recently arrived a dozen years after Soul Heavy. This set includes the song "Natural Born Days," which was not heard during the radio broadcast.
