Here's a recent purchase that has quickly become one of my favorite new records because it's such a fucked up little story.
There's nothing quite like a hillbilly murder/suicide ballad to make me feel better about what I got going on in my life. 'The Shadows Of The Prison Bars' has got to be one of the most depressing song in the history of recorded sound.
First she sends the kids off to mothers house where they'll be safe, then she kills (stabs with a dirty kitchen knife) her no good two-timin' husband. She then brings her dead hubby's body to his mistress' place so she can suffer over it too, and finally commits suicide while in prison by slicing her wrist with a broken piece of glass. All in three minutes time! Christ, somebody could make a movie out of this record.... I thought i had problems. I'm living the life over here- Ole Boots has got it rough!
