Stumpzian Farber

stumpzianStart a Google-query for “Stumpzian Farber”. Just “Stumpzian” will do just as well (as there won't be many others with a name like this). You will get about a thousands results, most of these will be linking to Facebook, Youtube, Soundcloud and to his comments and remarks on other people’s blogs. There’s also a link to the “Cover Me Archives”. But there it stops. You won’t find a biography or clues to who he is and where he lives (we didn’t).

On YouTube we’ve found his “covers”. But are these covers? Aren't these a sort of personal comments on Dylan’s songs? Is this man covering Sebastian Cabot? We can’t tell, really. But they are "different", so to speak. Definitly not mainstream.
This, and the mere fact that there were twenty covers on his Youtube channel, justified our decision to honour Stumpzian with an own page in the Featured Artists' category.
We think it is interesting. In fact… we think it is so 'different' that, if he personally reacts to this post, in the comment section below, we are willing to offer Stumpzian Farber an own corner on this website. His own video-blog/comment/whateverhe wants page.

 What are we talking about?

  • Cry A While - Stumpzian

    Today, April 10 is "Be Kind To Lawyers Day".

    The best way to celebrate is to ensure that the lawyers in your life know how much you appreciate their tireless efforts. Take some time to really understand the struggles they face, and maybe send them a card or gift basket to make sure they know you empathize with their struggle. Have you had a lawyer help you in a child custody case? Or in sorting things out with an unruly neighbor? Then maybe Be Kind To Lawyers Day is the time to make sure you send a little remembrance of what they’ve done.

    I might need a good lawyer, could be your funeral, my trial
    Well, I cried for you, now it’s your turn, you can cry awhile

    We have mr. Stumpzian

  • Foot of Pride - Stumpzian

    This is such a great song. Sean Wilentz, in his book, "Bob Dylan in America," says nine takes of the song yielded "nothing usable," and it was cut from the album Infidels. Too bad, because the outtake on the Outfidels bootleg is wonderful. Mr. Farber's interpretation here gives a pretty good taste of the lyrics.

  • I and I #2 - Stumpzian

    Mr. Farber interprets an excerpt from "I and I" from the Infidels album. This is an alternate version of Mr. Farber's official release.

  • I and I - Stumpzian

    March 20 marks the beginning of Spring (on the northern hemisphere). More importantly; it is also World Storytelling Day and most of us know that Dylan is a great storyteller.
    We can celebrate the two occasions with one song: I and I, which has the line:

    Outside of two men on a train platform there’s nobody in sight
    They’re waiting for spring to come, smoking down the track
    The world could come to an end tonight, but that’s all right
    She should still be there sleepin’ when I get back

    Mr. Stumpzian Farber and his ward perform an excerpt from the song.

  • I'm Not There (1956) - Stumpzian
