[ROOTS ROCK] By leaving the Charlatans (the little-remembered band that kicked off the whole Haight-Asbury scene) in 1968 to found his acoustic Western swing-influenced Hot Licks, Dan Hicks found himself at the vanguard of a countercultural sea change, from psychedelia “back to the land.” But a wry sense of humor and slightly off-kilter sensibility defined Hicks’ work as much as his choice of musical styles, as did his ability to underpin that weirdness and wit with emotional ballast in songs like “I Scare Myself” and “Moody Richard (The Innocent Bystander).” He’s just released a guest-laden new album, Live at Davies. Original Licks bassist Jaime Leopold dwells in Portland, and leads the Short Stories as a vehicle for his own good-natured, gently loping and smokily sung songs.
