Eugene Chadbourne is many things: a hillbilly improviser, a self-made raconteur, and a new music eclectic who mashes jazz, folk, experimental noise and neo-vaudeville . Once described as a direct threat to the American way of life by a White House spokesman, Eugene Chadbourne recently toured New Zealand bemusing and entertaining audiences with his electric rake, and a mixture of improvised and folk banjo playing. Trevor Reekie catches up with the mercurial and enigmatic Dr Eugene Chadbourne.
