about

"Undoubtedly the weirdest CD I received this year. . . [however], this still sounds pretty damn cool." —Seth Combs, SD City Beat

"RIYL: Joy Division, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, The Doors, Johnny Dowd, Salter Cane, Velvet Underground, The Gun Club, 16 Horsepower, Giant Sand, Lee Hazelwood. . . A country-tinged, psychedelic concept album focused on the heavy burden of guilt carried by the central character, it’s a tense and compelling affair based to an extent on the real family history of BOH’s Ian Curtis-esque singer, guitarist and songwriter, Grafton Silos. Reality and fiction combine in his deft, arcane lyrical imagery to plot the journey of “Henry Cutter…most storied man this family’s ever seen,” ensuring the listener is sucked into the narrative for an unsettling Gothic Americana experience. This is great stuff, a real treat likely to appeal not only to fans of the great artists and bands above, but also discerning listeners whose literary preferences might include the ilk of Cormac McCarthy, Raymond Carver or Jack London. Recommended." - David Morrison, NANAIMO, BC, CANADA
