R is for Rag’n’Bone Man



Don’t you just love Rory Graham’s stage name? Listening to “Human” I would have never guessed in a million years that he hails from East Sussex, England. He really captures the soul of Mississippi Delta blues and I wish Rag’n’Bone Man much success.


Today’s faux artist goes by the name Robosexual, the term for a humanoid robot fetish I encountered via the British comic “2000 AD” character Lobster Random. Unlike the cranky, genetically modified cartoon torturer, the singer/songwriter/performance artist plays well with others. I liken his sound to Celldweller, who collaborated with Criss Angel (the magician singing in this video).

  1. Living in beautiful East Sussex and having done so for most of my life, I just have to like Rory Graham don't I? I wonder if he ever visited Amble Bay?

    Another day in Amble Bay!

  2. I think I've heard "Human". If it's what I think it is, it's getting a lot of airplay here nowadays. (I can't play the video right now; I'm at work...)

  5. He's hard to avoid in the UK at the moment, but I do like his voice - very distinctive. And from the same neck of the woods as where I grew up too!

  7. Rag'n'bone Man has a cool sound and definitely doesn't sound British. Also liked the Criss Angel video. I used to watch his 'Mindfreak' TV show. Saw him perform in Vegas, five years ago. Interesting music. Thanks!

  9. Can't say I much like Celldweather. Can't get into it as music, seems more like a prank. a pretend. Can't relate to RagnBone man either. Must be the day.
