Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Mojo Nixon’s song “Going to Utah” as a herald to his forthcoming testament, The Mojo Manifesto: The Original Album Collection, available on Friday March 27.
The box contains ten CDs (ten albums!) plus a full-length documentary film on DVD titled The Mojo Manifesto: The Life and Times of Mojo Nixon. This is a really eye-opening DVD on Mojo’s career. Fans of Eric Ambel will be in for a treat on this one as well.
“Going to Utah” is classic Mojo rockabilly — a dash of humor rolled up in raw honesty. This song has a large quantity of unsettling foresight as well.
’Going to Utah’ was gonna be on (my album titled) Otis. Not sure what happened. This is a solo demo featuring early hatred of Donald Trump. — Mojo Nixon
