Guitarist Marc Miller on Oxes’ Unlikely Collaboration with Will Oldham


I have no trouble believing Will Oldham (AKA Bonnie “Prince” Billy) would cover Sheryl Crow’s “Strong Enough” — I could even imagine what it would sound like, to the point where I could probably get his version stuck in my head without having heard it. But Will Oldham collaborating with Oxes — the legendary Baltimore three-piece known for dissonant, technical guitar workouts — on a cover of the song sounds like an event with a probability of zero. Trying to guess what it would sound like makes my head hurt.
