talked the talk and he walked the walk with a crown of thorns placed upon his head as the blood ran down his face fell to the ground and began to pray who was the woman behind the man who saves called her a whore and a sinner of course but as others fled in doubt she stood holding faith who was the woman behind the who saves the dust was set and they placed their bets and the word was put down the gospel of Mary was nowhere to be found who was the woman behind the man who saves

she's her own disciple masquerading as the earth and the seven sees does what she says says what she damn well please she cut me open with her love now it runs all through my blood well you know what I mean when you talking to me Im going down down down till the bottom hits the ground Im going down down down till the bottom hits the ground she's up all night casting out her demons screaming feel just fine does what she says says what she damn well please she cut me open with her love now it runs all through my blood

there was an old man running as fast as he could from what he would not say could of been mostly anything and it was totally creeping me out maybe this costume of shells it will protect me from the giant robot cyclops clown where the forest meets the ocean floor zero level entrance you can walk in so gradually the strange ones came down from the trees unified they agreed the pisces rose up from the sea four walls that protect me from the giant robot cyclops clown

me and my daddy buried my sister way down in Goldendale laid her body down in Lavender and Sage now that you met your destination you be sleeping in the pines laid her body down in Lavender and Sage now that you reached the end of the road through her shroud you can see her toes grab a shovel take your turn till the earth turn back in to her laid her body down in Lavender and Sage me and my daddy buried my sister way down in Goldendale laid her body down in Lavender and Sage

about

When Jesse Noll discovered the Delta blues as a teenager, his life in the Northwest was a world—and generations—away from that old time music. His evolution as an artist has spanned genres. He can be called singer-songwriter, indie, folk, rock or pop. But the guitar playing and emotional belting of the blues consistently weaves itself in Jesse’s songs, with a tilt of a hat to the musicians of long ago.

Jesse set out to record Till the Bottom Hits the Ground in a way that was in the spirit of his early influences, yet true to his vision. He sought out Calvin Johnson of K Records to engineer these recordings, as Jesse was also influenced by his work on Beck’s One Foot in the Grave album. Recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia , Washington , these five songs capture the energy of Jesse’s music that has only previously been heard at live shows.

With the core--vocals, guitar and drums by Tanessa Noll—of the album recorded at Dub Narcotic, Jesse overdubbed vocals and rhythm guitar by long-time friend and collaborator, Tim Tharp of the Hot Cops. Ephriam Nagler, who mixed and mastered the album at Dub Narcotic, plays piano on “Nation Sack.”

“Lavendar and Sage” is a fast-paced, gripping song about loss. Jesse has called “Gospel of Mary” his conspiracy gospel song. He co-wrote “Giant Robot Cyclops Clown” with his son, Guy, based on a dream. Title track “Till the Bottom Hits the Ground,” along with “Nation Sack,” showcase Jesse’s ability to keep the Delta blues alive, in his way, on his Stella guitar.
