Gob Iron is British slang for the Harmonica. The phrase has been adopted by two of our American friends, Jay Farrar (Uncle Tupelo, Son Volt) and Anders Parker (Varnaline) for their American folk music revival project. Death Songs For The Living contains fresh takes on songs by Stephen Foster and Reverend JM Gates, among others and a new song penned by Jay Farrar. This album was originally released in 2006. LP on Transmit Sound.
