What is No Tears for Old Scratch about? Here's a quick description to give you a hint...

“Welcome to Knob’s End—The Holiest Town in America.”

So reads the sign that greets a mysterious stranger as he steps off a bus one dark night in upstate New York.  But life is not so great in the small town of Knob’s End. The economy has tanked, jobs are drying up, and people are losing their homes. Led by their local pastor, Father Balano, the citizens’ only source of pride is an award-winning community display—“The Graveyard of the Innocent.” Once the stranger arrives, however, life in Knob’s End begins to unravel.  Soon, a child is missing and the sins start stacking up. As the stranger stirs the pot, he can’t avoid confrontations with menacing old ladies, anarchic metalheads, pugnacious Christians, and the ghosts of his own past…

No Tears for Old Scratch is a dark and humorous literary tale about an outsider who suddenly finds himself lost in a veritable dead-end.

One bit of good news from 2013: My last big project of the year, Stephen Hawking's Snapshots of the Universe (which gave me the opportunity to work with the man himself) launched in the iTunes app store on December 12. And was named Apple's Editor's Choice for the week. Check it:

Tribute day via El Mano Negro (https://www.facebook.com/elmanonegroband) :

Our song "The Thin Man Never Saw It Coming" was inspired by two songs. The first one was the live version of Tom Waits' "Dirt in the Ground" of the Glitter and Doom album:
20. Tom Waits - Dirt In The Ground (Live, Atlanta 2008)

Wonderfully haunting stuff. Music almost feels like a drunk staggering down the street.

You can check out "The Thin Man Never Saw It Coming" via the link below. And the other song comin' up next week:
