Cheers JT, I'll check 'em out. Gothic Americana, eh - I like it!

Searching For the Wrong Eyed Jesus is a great film. Also features one of my favourite writers, the genius Harry Crews. Feast of Snakes is a book everyone needs to read. Who's that older feller who sings a couple of songs - cool looking geezer with a silver quiff? Johnny someone? Also sings a song (can't recall if its in the film) about coming from Fort Worth, Texas?

I'm in the badlands of Manchester, UK, but we used to have a local promoter, Nick Georgiou, who'd put on every alt country band that was touring Europe. Got to see lots of great music thanks to Nick.
