DANIEL HUTCHENS/Beautiful vicious Cycle of Life: Part of a coterie of southern musical geniuses that seem to be unsung, he's known by insiders from Widespread Panic to Velvet Underground, all of whom have been beneficiaries of his musical largesse. A revered songwriter in Athens, GA., he doesn't hew to the alt.party line and pretty much seems to draw his own lines where he will. A busman's holiday record from his 20 year stint in Bloodkin, his unbridled, unharnessed southern bred creativity comes at you with the kind of ferocity that made outlaw country so compelling in it's original burst even if this isn‘t a country record. Here's to Hutchins not giving up and going to law school. Long may he run and may this be the set that makes him a household word.
