Interview with Robbie Fulks about 'Gone Away Backward'" by Kim Ruehl, No Depression Magazine (September 18, 2013). 2001 saw the release of Couples in Trouble, a dark, brooding, and decidedly non-country album, and 13 Hillbilly Giants, a collection of covers of classic country numbers both obscure and well known.

Gone Away Backward, the latest release from Americana, Roots Rock artist Robbie Fulks not only marks a triumphant return to Bloodshot records, the label that gave him his first significant exposure, but also represents a sort of back to the future homecoming, with the same sort of down home songwriting and storytelling that made him a critics darling going back to the mid. 1980’s. Trying to capture the essence of Robbie Fulks is a bit like trying to catch a butterfly in mid-air with one hand. It is a devastatingly honest song that will tell you about all you need to know about this album. Time passes slower where Robbie Fulks is from. Two Cars, a picket fence, that’s where I come, dirt roads and double wides that’s where I’m from. The song tugs on the autobiographical heart strings with a vocal performance that falls somewhere between Lyle Lovett and Willie Nelson.
