Eddie Noack - BIO & DISCOGRAPHY

Biography

Though he originally set out to be a journalist, graduating from Baylor University with a B.A. in English and journalism, honky tonker Eddie Noack found himself as a country singer after he won a talent contest in 1947. After two years of constant radio performances, Noack received a contract from Gold Star where he got hot with a cover of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." From then on, however, Noack hopped from label to label like a jackrabbit, recording for TNT, Starday, and the D label. Tired off the constant hustle, Noack retired from the business in the late ‘50s, and much to his surprise, country artists such as Ernest Tubb began re-discovering his compositions such as "For Better or Worse" and "Barbara Joy." This led to the inevitable comeback attempts, but aside from a small, devoted following of rockabilly fans Noack was unable to reach a wider audience. ~ Steve Kurutz, All Music Guide

Originally broadcast January 24, 2007

With a few sentences, Dylan would send me off on a journey that would lead me to Texas snipers, blind singers, 100 proof honky-tonkers, and a country subgenre I never knew existed - Psychobilly.

And people ask why I like Theme Time.

On August 1, 19 and 66, Charles Whitman, an architectural engineering major at the University of Texas in Austin, barricadedhimself in the observation deck of the tower of the school's main building with a sniper rifle and various other weapons.
n a 96-minute shooting spree, Whitman killed 14 people and wounded over 30 more. In a note Whitman had left behind at his home, together with the bodies of his mother and wife, Whitman wrote...

"I don't quite understand what it is that compels me to type this letter. Perhaps it is to leave some vague reason for the actions I have recently performed. I don't really understand myself these days. I am supposed to be an average reasonable and intelligent young man. However, lately (I can't recall when it started) I have been a victim of many unusual and irrational thoughts."

Although he made no mention of what was coming next, Whitman apparently knew he wouldn't survive it, asking in the note that his body be autopsied for evidence that there had a physical reason behind his madness. He also left instructions for the care of his puppy.

The first shot came from the Tower at 11:48 the next morning.

Doctors discovered a tumor in Whitman's brain during the autopsy.

Leon Payne was a blind songwriter and singer based in San Antonio. Among old-time country fans, Payne is probably best remembered for the classics "I Love You Because" and "You've Still Got A Place In My Heart," as well as two songs recorded by Hank Williams Sr., "They'll Never Take Her Love From Me" and "Lost Highway."

Payne wrote hundreds of other songs too during his 30-odd year career, which included a stint with Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys in 19 and 38. But he never wrote anything else like "Psycho." Apparently deeply affected by the shootings*, Payne penned a four-minute song with the refrain...

"You think I'm psycho don't you mama?
You better let 'em lock me up."

... until the final, chilling, slightly changed, last line.

********************************************************************************************************************************
* Note - As mentioned in the comments below, Leon Payne's daughter has corrected the story that Psycho was inspired by the Whitman killings. Instead the song sprung from the movie of the same name... which, when you think about it and read the lyrics, makes better sense. Myrtie Le Payne has finished a book on her father which she notes will be published soon. It should be of interest to any Leon Payne fan and, as one, I look forward to reading it - fhb 3/30/08
********************************************************************************************************************************

There's no evidence that Payne ever recorded "Psycho." Maybe just writing the song got whatever demons the Whitman killings had stirred up out of his head. In three years time, Leon Payne would be dead of a heart attack, and "Psycho" would first be recorded by Eddie Noack in 19 and 68.
Eddie Noack (pictured above) was a Houston-born musician who was once described as being "100-proof Texas honky-tonk." Born Armond A. Noack Jr. in 19 and 30 in Houston, Texas, Noack would drink himself to his death 47 years later.
Though he originally set out to be a reporter, graduating from Baylor University with a B.A. in journalism, Eddie Noack became a country singer after he won a talent contest in 1947.

Better known as a radio performer and songwriter than as a recording artist during the first years of his career, Noack finally had a minor hit in 1949 with a cover of "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," which, as Theme Time Constant Listeners will remember, was played on the "Hair" episode.

But always a second-tier performer and tiring of the business and his lack of success, Noack retired in the late ‘50s to concentrate on songwriting.

Noack attempted a comeback - in fact, several comebacks - during the `60s and `70s, but except for a small, devoted following of rockabilly fans, Bob Dylan numbered among them, he remained largely unknown.

Noack and Payne both recorded for the Starday label at one time and may have known each other through that connection. One way or the other, "Psycho" came into Noack's hands, and he recorded the song on the K-ARK label in 1968.

As well as "Psycho," some other bizarre songs recorded by Noack during that late `60s comeback included "Dolores," and "Beer Drinking Blues," making a virtual Psychobilly trilogy for fans of the genre.

And Psychobilly is a genre, with devoted fans discussing the merits of such songs as Porter Wagoner's "Rubberroom," or his "The Cold Hard Facts of Life" (where a husband exacts revenge on a wife's cheatin' heart with a large knife) or Spade Cooley's "You Clobbered Me." Cooley, as you may remember Dylan mentioning in an aside, beat his wife to death as their 14-year-old daughter looked on.
Some Psychobilly collections - all apparently going out-of-print right after release - include the commercial Rebels & Outlaws: Music from the Wild Side of Life, the appropriately-titled bootleg Death Dealers, and what is generally considered to be the definitive catalog of the genre, God Less America: Country & Western fer All Ye Sinners 'n' Sufferers, featuring as one reviewer put it, "people you've never heard of singing songs you'll never forget."

"Psycho" has been recorded several more times by several more artists, most notably by Theme Time favorite Elvis Costello, who performed it live at Hollywood's Palomino Club and released it as the B-side of "Sweet Dreams" on a UK-release single, as well as on his album Almost Blue. You can also find the song on the 1998 soundtrack for Gus Van Sant's strange shot-for-shot remake of the Hitchcock classic movie, Psycho. If you go to the Amazon page, you'll see as one of the reviewers' comments a posting from Leon Payne's daughter:

"I am of course prejudice[d] to "Psycho" written by Leon Payne, because I am his daughter. But I think Teddy Thompson did a wonderful job on the song and I am sure Daddy would have been proud of his version."

Sources: Starting points for information on Charles Whitman and Leon Payne were their respective Wikipedia entries, both of which have links to additional information. Readers interested in learning more about the Texas Tower shootings while find this "Crime Library" article useful: http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/notorious_murders/mass/whitman/index_1.html
More about Leon Payne can be found here, as well as a wonderful picture of Payne with his band, The Lone Star Buddies: http://www.talentondisplay.com/LeonPayne.html

There's a paucity of information about Eddie Noack on the Web. But I did find the Answers.com article (re-posted above), which I suspect was also the foundation for Bob Dylan's Theme Time commentary.

If you want to read more about psychobilly, a term that I coined[???], and which is usually termed "country-psycho" or "psycho-country," a good article to start your journey is Early Rumblings by Peter Orlov: http://www.seattleweekly.com/1999-09-22/music/early-rumblings/ As always, Chet Flippo's Nashville Skyline column was informative: http://www.cmt.com/news/articles/1484839/02052004/cash_johnny.jhtml

From a listening standpoint, good luck in finding any of the albums/CDs I cited. God Less America was apparently released on both vinyl and CD, but both versions are long out-of-print. You'll occasionally find one or the other listed on eBay. I would ah, kill, for a copy, if any of my listeners owns it. Ditto with the bootleg Death Dealers. Rebels & Outlaws: Music from the Wild Side of Life is also out-of-print, but much easier for the dedicated collector to find.
