Phoebe and Lauren return to discuss some more Criminal-related music this week, as Waits seems to further abandon the New York core of Rain Dogs for a more southern blues/chain gang feel, wandering into the world of the murder ballad.

Please add comment via emailtwitter or at soundcloud.

Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
Gun Street Girl, Rain Dogs, Tom Waits (1985)

Stack O’Lee, American Epic: Mississippi John Hurt, Mississippi John Hurt (1928/2017)

Stagger Lee, Murder Ballads, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (1996)
