I've had this underground bluegrass country label CD sampler for ages - I
used to listen to it at Jester - And the first song on it is by a guy called
Joe Pernice and opens with the line "I got a scar above my eye from the
dirty little shit who tried to love me underneath the bridge..."

Well, I found his CD in Borders last night and fuck me...  The first two
songs are kind of cheesy country blues and then it's just fucking stunning.
If you go to amazon.com and do a search for Joe Pernice and check out the
album "Big Tobacco" you cna hear previews.  Listen to "Bum Leg" (about a
wandering hobo and his adventures, such as being the victim of an attempted
ass raping) and "Pipe Bomb" (about blowing up the car of some girl who won't
return his calls, while she's inside it)...  

Steve Pick will absolutely love this album, I swear to God.
