"So many people who claim to write blues music these days are writing quaint odes to yesteryear that couldn’t ruffle a feather with the help of a strong breeze. So it’s refreshing to hear Pete Pawsey come along with his new band line up, Radar's Clowns of Sedation, and a set of songs that are rude, socially unacceptable, and even a little seditious. YES. This is the blues kids used to sneak away from their parents to hear. This is the blues that used to get banned from the radio. This is is the blues said the things that god folk didn’t have the guts to hear."
“2/18 THR (Blue Bayou) Radar Clowns of Sedation - Pied piper of Mebane, Pete Pawsey, summons all the rats and children from the upper counties to the Blue Bayou for free a show. His backing band of drowsy clowns will stand you up, just so his soulful British blues harp can smack you back down. Take it like a man. - Hidden Tiger”
