That would have been sweet to hear Cash cover some of the Handsome Family's songs. Have you seen the documentary Search for the Wrong Eyed Jesus? The Handsome Family does some great stuff on there. Have you ever listened to Slim Cessna's Auto Club out of Denver Colorada (I am not sure where you are from US or somewhere else)? The lead singer Munly used to have a band called Munly and the Lee Lewis Harlots that was great. Now Munly has The Lupercalians and I bet they are good (knowing Munly) but I haven't got a chance to hear them yet. They are in that same kind of vein. They are calling the style for The Handsome Family, Munly, Slim Cessna,The Legendary Shack Shakers...etc as Gothic Americana. I really dig whatever it is regardless of what they call it.
