This is a cover *gulp* (really more of a tribute) of a song by this other band called O'Death. I contacted them a while ago about doin it and they said hell yeah, do it up. (They are quite a different sort of band from us). Anyway, this is me singin an playin the fiddle. Hope you like it.

Yowza, that's good stuff. I don't hear enough fiddle in the average week, I think. And your vocals really nail that sort of hillbilly mourn thing.

It is. It makes me feel like I'm living in the wrong city, I can never find anyone to play with.

What a cool band, and what a cool song. I really have nothing else to say other than I really like your stuff. Please keep 'em coming.

And as for O'Death. I checked their myspace page and saw "Gothic / Country / Punk" and I thought "yeah, right." Then the sound started and I was blown away! So thx for your songs and thx for the ink to O'Death.

This is quality stuff! I love the banjo groove and the fiddle is just gorgeous. I am so jealous of your fiddle skills. Very nice vocal overdubs too. I'm off to check out your other tracks!

That would be the high and lonesome sound.
