Misery Loves Company

It's been too cheerful round these parts for too long now. Time then to wallow in some misery in the company of Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys.
Their 2002 album Your Favorite Fool (dang American spelling!) is on Bloodshot Records and is produced by Pete Anderson so you just know it is going to be good.
They featured on my Bloodshot Tuesday series in the early days of  the blog to considerable indifference.
Well overdue another airing.
Strangely first time round I never featured the duet with Kelly Hogan, the woman with the finest voice in country. Time to right that wrong.

Rex Hobart & the Misery Boys with Kelly Hogan - Golden Ring


  1. Always happy to indulge in some misery. Never heard these guys before but they do the trick and have been duly added to the bottomless pit of my Wants List.

  2. Speaking of your many interesting series, CC, I hope someday down the road to see an occasional or mini-revival of your 'Sunday Soul' series (hint, hint) ;-)
