Farquahr discography Artist were mainstays on the Boston and New Haven folk scene in the 1960s and '70s; blending humor with music, they cut an album for Verve in 1968 as the Fabulous Artist, and shortened the name to Artist when they recorded their second (and last) album for Elektra in 1970. The group's deliberately silly stage names disguised the fact that three of the members of Artist were actually brothers -- Bobby McGowan (aka Hummingbird Artist), Dennis McGowan (aka Condor Artist) and Frank McGowan (aka Flamingo Artist), with Doug Lapham joining them as Barnswallow Artist -- and they also performed as a Celtic folk combo known as the McGowan Brothers. Unfortunately, Artist's comic side often gets lost in the shuffle on this album, though "Dear John Deere" and "Holy Moses" display a keen wit. With Jerry Ragovoy producing the set, the polished arrangements (often dotted with strings) are prime examples of early-'70s folk-rock (though "Dear John Deere" leans towards a ragtime flavor), with the quartet's harmonies and Lapham's songs clearly the main attraction here. While Artist's playful side is certainly visible, Lapham was an intelligent and perceptive lyricist when he had something to say, and the draft dodger's tale "Streets of Montreal" and the philosophical "My Island" are compelling stuff. Longtime fans looking for a reminder of Artist's days as the Clown Princes of New England Folk will have to wait for the Verve album to be reissued some day, but this set confirms that they were fine singers with a gifted songwriter in their ranks, and deserved wider recognition outside their home base. ~ Mark Deming Audio Mixers: Jon Child; Art Polhemus.
