Album Notes
Rare, early solo recordings by Those Poor Bastards singer Lonesome Wyatt. Better than a shovel to the back of the head.

"Creepy late nineteenth century sound with a dark sense of humor...will unquestionably stand the test of time." - Shut Eye Records

"In your face acoustic guitar with swooping pipes that switch from normal to growling, like a cowboy western crooner run afoul in a grade-B horror set." - Legends Magazine

Depressing songs of the deep South
For a bastard from Wisconsin, ol' Wyatt really knows how to wallow in the turbulent grit of the South. Every song on here is great, and while the album has more cohesion than most, every song maintains its specific character. "A Horse Deceased" is probably my favorite of the bunch. The music approaches dirge-like absurds at times, but he manages to make it work without fail. This album is highly recommended. Unless you're a big wienie.

An Underground Classic
Sabella, by Lonesome Wyatt and the Holy Spooks, is an underground classic which ought not to be missed. Others I have played the album for cite a likeness to Appalachian folk, traditional "cowboy" music, and 1930's Americana, but tinged with a gothic and punk element. This still falls short of encompassing the sonic buffet of divergent sounds, which also exude a spontaineity reminiscent of Jim Morrison's antics with the Doors. I suggest that the listener form one's own opinion, for this album consistently defies categorization. -Ben Bell
