Tomahawk guitarist Duane Denison talks new album, band history (Episode 556)

One of the modern era’s great guitarists is Tomahawk’s Duane Denison. His scorched-earth work with the Jesus Lizard in the 90s was some of the most vital and dangerous-sounding music of that period. Balance that with his contributions to Hank Williams III and the Legendary Shack Shakers, to say nothing of all the other projects he’s been involved with (Firewater, USSA, Revolting Cocks, Pigface), and you have a body of work that is diverse, influential and important.

Tomahawk returns with “Tonic Immobility,” the band’s first album in 8 years, on March 26. The first single, “Business Casual,” finds the band right where they left us with “Oddfellows.” Duane’s here to talk Tomahawk and other aspects of his stunning career.
