CARNY MUSIC FOR THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY ECONOMIC DUSTBOWL
WOEBEGONE by Danbert Nobacon and The Bad Things (Verbal Burlesque Records 2010)
Woebegone is a fictional musical noir tracking the early years of Johnny Woebegone and Lilithiana Red, through songs of oil, sex, death with an other worldliness we cannot quite put our finger on. Set in the rapidly decaying world of the mid-2020's, with Nobacon in character as Woebegone, the album charts yet to be discovered hidden depths. The pairing Nobaconian lounge noir and other country blues, with the majesty and junkyard cabaret of South Seattle’s The Bad Things provides a musical feast for delinquents and degenerates everywhere.
