The Suitcase Junket
The Suitcase Junket
The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: a one-man salvage specialist singing into the hollow of a dumpster guitar, railing on a box of twisted forks and bones, and belting out mountain ballads till the house sings back. Artist, tinkerer, swamp Yankee, one-man band - his is the road-worn voice rising over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, with wild double pitches of throat singing.

Last year’s heavy blues-rock album, “Pile Driver,” found Lorenz staking claim to new musical territory, a sort of cross between Led Zeppelin and Tom Waits, on a collection of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance-hall festivities, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartment’s worth of luggage.
