Reverend Goat Carson
Born David Lee Carson of Cherokee descent in Texas and forced to keep his heritage quiet in a racist time, his natural affinity was to country blues. Goat began his musical career in the beatnik coffeehouses of Dallas. Working as a ranch hand for his father, in 1968 he began making bone harps from pelvis bones, rib bones and cow skulls.
About the Book
Set in Hollywood and the Hamptons during the dead end of the 70's, Shallow Graves is a satirical retelling of the Parsival legend. Our Holy Fool is the Professor, a half-breed orphan, who does research for horror films. He finds himself pitted against a cabal of satanic cults all vying for control of the clans at the great Feast of the Beast. Movie stars, human sacrifice, East Hampton society and the living dead are all strung together by thread of coincidence with needle sharp wit. The occult pulp fictions of our times are turned on their heads (the Spear of Destiny was stolen by Houdini at the turn of the century; Magdalene was black.) This dark satire on Hollywood, The DaVinci Code and The State of the Nation is a must read for all true fans of the bizarre.
