Original songs by Mortimer Bustos, plus a few old standards -- though we take the hobo knife to them.
Hobo Knife songs all share a sense of impending doom, & often a stubborn resistance to it. So if you are trapped by the alienating conditions of existence, if you feel the pull of a hell-bound flood of existential angst, then follow the seductive mournful wail you hear in the distance. It's Hobo Knife - singing your song. Come join us. Drink, dance & make merry - 'cause misery loves company.
