[CREATIVITY OVERLOAD] When I interviewed Morgan Geer, who records under the name Drunken Prayer, a few years ago, he told me a story about meeting Tom Waits and hitting him up for career advice. Geer had recently dragged himself out of a creative rut, but was unclear of what to do next. Waits\' answer? \"Well, everything. Don’t put a fence around that property.” House of Morgan, the part-time Portlander\'s third Drunken Prayer album, certainly isn\'t fenced in by much of anything. Recorded using a Tascam cassette machine and a Radio Shack mic (does Radio Shack still exist?), the record, on which Geer plays just about everything, moves from back-porch blues to rollicking cow punk to tears-in-the-sand border country to no-fi gospel hymns to a swaying, mandolin-garnished sea-chanty kind of thing. It\'s an ecstatically unfiltered brain dump, and while it isn\'t totally coherent, there\'s a certain thrill to getting smacked with that many disparate ideas all at once. Waits would approve, if nothing else.
