click here to hear Fang Man's Blues
I saw this news article on the AMC New Music Box announcing that composer Fang Man had won an award.
I thought to myself "Fang Man! That's a great pseudonym for a rock 'n roll singer who is becoming a serious composer."
But it turned out Fang Man is a Chinese name and she is working her way up the "important composer" ladder. Here is Fang Man's website.
Then I thought "Fang Man needs her own blues. Fang Man's Blues!"
Don't get the joke? Click here, scroll down and listen to "Hangman's Blues" by Blind Lemon Jefferson. Yeah. I know. Sorry.
She'll probably be upset, huh? Even so, this piece is written in Fang Man's honor, but it has no reference that I'm aware of to her music. It certainly doesn't have anything to do with Hangman's Blues.
