Our songs take their inspiration  from pre-war country music. The Carter Family, through to modern hillbilly noir found in the novels of Daniel Woodrell .  Following the Southern Gothic tradition by telling stories of death, crime , lost love and disaster. 

The band features Frank Sweeney (Guitar, Vocals and Harmonica), Annie Holder (guitar, vocal and kazoo) and Adi Staempfli (bass and vocals)
