Beginning as a documentation of a descent into hopelessness within the walls of a malevolent house, "Oh, Didn't He Ramble" is the forthcoming debut release from The Old Scratch Revival Singers. The project was begun to explore the ideas and moods of the ex-Heart Attacks (now All Rattle and Dust). Since then, the ideas and playing of more people have been added. The live group is now a seven piece combo. While the album does incorporate some electrical instruments, the live show does not. The music is not far from its Iowa roots, it contains elements of bluegrass, ragtime, and gospel. With a propensity for darkness, superstition and old time religion, The Old Scratch Revival Singers provide themes of damnation in this world, and salvation in the next.
