In search of a mysterious Medicine Man who also happened to be a crafter of authentic and unique percussion instruments in South America, the equally elusive Clutchy Hopkins found himself lost in an unknown land looking for said healer and musician with no more than a story and rumors. Journal entries were discovered of his travels in the 70's and 80's, only to find that he had no luck but landed in Barbados as his best clue to the puzzle of finding Lord Kenjamin. Locals and children often intentionally misled Hopkins down the wrong paths for fun, as he made maps that lead to nowhere. On one such disappointing trip back he was bit by the highly poisonous lionfish, or so the story goes, and as he made his way back to his hotel he fell very ill and collapsed very close to death in an alley on a side street. Feeling responsible for what had happened, the children eventually took him to the real location, and over the course of three months he was brought back to health, but in this time, while in and out of consciousness Clutchy and Lord Kenjamin collaborated on what they found as a common ground and a road to recovery with music. These are their recordings. Combine the stylings of Clutchy's any-instrument-will-make-do approach and jam sessions with a dublike-Caribbean flare that one can only pick up from real experiences and mentors, and you've got Music Is My Medicine.
