The Moon and the Scarecrow

by Andrew MacGregor


Brother Dege: “The Moon and the Scarecrow” - 3 mins 24s

One can imagine bumping into Brother Dege on a pitch-black night in America's Deep South. Wild man look and penchant for scarecrow-based album covers aside, Dege Legg also plays a mean but melodic slide guitar.

The Louisiana native's talent is evident as performs ‘The Moon and the Scarecrow', smoothing the rough edges of his lyrics - "Double did my time in a cold hole/Right where the law man caught me" - with searching vocals and a balmy riff.

As for the promo, director Colin Read bathes Legg and his companion in the dying light, occasionally jolting the eye with shots of a flaming effigy. Searing yet beguiling, it's also a worthy bid to reclaim wheat fields from Theresa May.
