“Those Poor Bastards are the best gothic country I have heard yet to this day. The depressing gloomy vocals coming out of this drifter named Lonesome Wyatt has hints of Marilyn Manson to Nick Cave, Throw Rag and maybe even a hint of a demented Adam Ant with a shot of a pilled up Johnny Cash… And The Minister is backing up Lonesome Wyatt with a style that is a cross between erie strung out folk music with a creepy blend of The Nightmare Before Christmas!!!!!!!!!”
Hank Williams III

“Even in a crisp digital format, the new Songs of Desperation sounds as if Harry Smith dug it out of some trunk in a long-abandoned Mississippi shack that was once shared by The Cramps, Nick Cave, and The Louvin Brothers. The miserable, primitive duo carries on as if the graveyard is but a step ahead, the devil a step behind, and there’s hell to pay in every direction.”
