Another lonesome soul - Lonesome Bob

I was asking after Allison Moorer earlier this month - and BigRockCandyMountain was kind enough to point us in the the direction of Lonesome Bob's 'Things Fall Apart' album, where Allison plays EmmyLou to Bob's Gram, describing it as Nick Cave meets Hank Williams. Can't argue with that. And for this song, I'd add in a bit of The Handsome Family too as it has the same feel - claustrophobic, graphic lyrics coupled with a disarmingly tuneful melody.

It's a bit of dark, dark country that sounds like an ill-advised visit to Cracker Barrel after a week on the gin. What are you waiting for?
