Requiem for What's His Name is the second album by Marc Ribot & The Rootless Comopolitans. It was released on the Belgian label Les Disques du Crepuscule in 1992. It was recorded in New York City, except "Commit a Crime" which was recorded live at Desi Stadtteilzentrum in Nuremberg, Germany. The Allmusic review by Brian Beatty awarded the album 4 stars stating "On his second release as a bandleader, guitarist Marc Ribot is joined by players familiar from his gigs as a hired sideman, including saxophonist Roy Nathanson of the Lounge Lizards and the Jazz Passengers and multi-reed player Ralph Carney from Tom Waits' touring band. Though less swinging and fresh than 1990's Rootless Cosmopolitans, this album's original compositions and renditions of Duke Ellington and Howlin' Wolf tunes still leave plenty of room for Ribot's discordant guitar stylings. Available in the U.S. only as an expensive import. ". All compositions are by Marc Ribot, except where indicated otherwise.
