Film At 11: Seasick Steve

Seasick Steve became an overnight sensation in the U.K. in 2006 with his appearance on New Year’s Eve TV special Hootenanny. What made this success story all the more sweet is that Steve was in his mid-60s at the time. The Oakland-born musician has had quite a life (teenage runaway, Bikini Kill/Modest Mouse producer, heart-attack surviver), and now he has his first U.S. record deal. Man From Another Time will be released by Ryko on March 16. In the meantime, here’s album track “Never Go West” from a performance on Later… With Jools Holland from last year.
