Quarry Mountain Dead Rats : Bloodhound Killed My Squeeze Box
Melbourne’s Quarry Mountain Dead Rats is a bluegrass collective that drawls and fiddles at a cracking pace. Their banjo and mandolin getting a decent workout on Bloodhound Killed My Squeeze Box, a song about a troublesome dog with a long face who slobbers all over the newspaper and knocks over drinks. Not a massive fan of songs about dogs, to be honest, except where the dogs are disguised as women. In this case I suppose it could be a woman disguised as a dog, but that would be pretty mean. And plus why would a woman carry a newspaper around in her mouth? Presuming she still has hands, that makes no sense at all.
