So far it went really well.  There were some glances at Johnny Cash's cover of "One", but the mood was good, and I have it playing under a slideshow of photos of Zion National Park and old west buildings and what not.

Music Video:

I shoulda mentioned that the band is called "The Mormons", from LA.

The song is "Entertainment as a Chore".   (A great description of rpgs, I think.)

And allow me to point-out the 'fallout' imagery.  heh.


I tagged some of the music listed in here at, which is a great online radio service IMHO. The tag for subscribed users to listen to is


As does not have all the great track listed here, this is a short selection. I'll try and add more songs in the future.



The soundtracks to Tombstone and Wyatt Earp are both nicely evocative.  The soundtrack to HBO's Deadwood is a nice compliation of period music, though if you haven't seen the show, you might want to be wary as the soundtrack contains sound bites from the show, and most of the sound bites contain explicit language.


I myself swear by a program called RPG Sound Maker. I don't have the URL right now, being at work, but it should be easy to find with Google.

It's a sweet little program which lets you define sound sets and subsets, assigning sound to your keyboards keys. For example, in a subset called "Fight", the "G" key might trigger a gunshot, or a series of gunshots. You can build ambiance soundsets, like "Town Street", with people talking and carts rattling by, horses neighing, etc. It's a great help getting into the game's atmosphere.

You can even play background music with the sound effects.

Problem: I do not know, if there is an English version. But a manual in English should be available.

There is an english version.
The program is hidden via the counter-intuitive (sarcasm mode off) url of:

F# A# Infinity by Godspeed You! Black Emperor is just too perfect. Its like the soundtrack to an apocalyptic western, and its great. And Mogwai too. Great for atmospheric stuff. But then again, I'm just so enamoured of these groups that I think they'd sound great anywhere. If I could marry the entire Quebec/Toronto ambient post-rock scene, I probably would (Yes, I'm aware that Mogwai is Scottish, and I'd marry them too).

Kamelot, "The Inquisitor" (on The Fourth Legacy). Contextually off but spiritually reasonably close, for some interpretations.


I was recently driving around listening to Johnny Cash when I realized his cover of Rusty Cage would be a great sountrack song for Dogs.


Just one track, and I can't seem to find it anywhere for download, but "Whips of Mercy" by The Warlocks is pretty frickin' sweet.


The new Johnny Cash - American V: A Hundred Highways  has a great track on it - 'God's Gonna Cut You Down'

Go tell that long tongue liar
Go and tell that midnight rider
Tell the rambler,
The gambler,
The back biter
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down
Tell 'em that God's gonna cut 'em down

Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand
Workin' in the dark against your fellow man
But as sure as God made black and white
What's down in the dark will be brought to the light

You can run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Run on for a long time
Sooner or later God'll cut you down
Sooner or later God'll cut you down

How Dogs is THAT!

That just solidifies how badly I need to get that album!

David Coulter

From Bob Dylan's new album, Modern Times:

Ain't Talkin'

As I walked out tonight in the mystic garden,
The wounded flowers were dangling from the vine,
I was passin' by yon cool crystal fountain,
Someone hit me from behind.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Through this weary world of woe.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
No one on earth would ever know.

They say prayer has the power to heal, so pray for me, mother.
In the human heart, an evil spirit will dwell.
I am a-tryin' to love my neighbor and do good unto others,
But oh mother things ain't goin' well.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
I'll burn that bridge before you can cross.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
There'll be no mercy for you once you've lost.

Now I'm all worn down by weeping,
My eyes are filled with tears, my lips are dry.
If I catch my opponents ever sleeping,
I'll just slaughter 'em where they lie.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Through the world mysterious and vague.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Walkin' through the cities of the plague.

Well, the whole world is filled with speculation,
The whole wide world which people say is round.
They will tear your mind away from contemplation,
They will jump on your misfortune when you're down.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Eatin' hog-eyed grease in a hog-eyed town.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Some day you'll be glad to have me around.

They will crush you with wealth and power
Every waking moment you could crack.
I'll make the most of one last extra hour,
I'll avenge my father's death when I step back.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Hand me down my walkin' cane.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Got to get you out of my miserable brain.

All my loyal and my much-loved companions
They approve of me and share my code
I practice a faith that's been long abandoned
Ain't no altars on this long and lonesome road

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
My mule is sick, my horse is blind.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Thinkin' 'bout that gal I left behind.

Well, it's bright in the heavens and the wheels are flyin',
Fame and honor never seem to fade.
The fire gone out but the light is never dyin'.
Who says I can't get heavenly aid'

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Carryin' a dead man's seal.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Walkin' with a toothache in my heel.

The suffering is unending;
Every nook and cranny has its tears.
I'm not playing, I'm not pretending,
I'm not nursing any superfluous fears.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Walkin' ever since the other night.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
Walkin' till I'm clean out of sight.

As I walked out in the mystic garden
On a hot summer day, a hot summer lawn.
Excuse me, ma'am, I beg your pardon:
There's no one here, the gardener is gone.

Ain't talkin', just walkin'
Up the road, around the bend.
Heart burnin', still yearnin'
In the last outback at the world's end.

Steven Stewart

Two that I listened to a lot before pickin' up dogs, and now I think will add to the playlist in the planned upcoming play are:

Gerry Garcia and David Grisman - the Pizza Tapes, while some of the doodling isn't appropriate, they do a fair number of murder ballads like Louis Collins and Long Black Veil. They also have a really good "drifting to far from the shore". Not sure if it had to do with his health scares at the time or not but you can really hear the mortaility in some of the songs (for those who don't know Gerry G, has strong bluegrass roots and started doing stuff with David Grisman on the side)

Another one I picked up was the Two Gallants, they have a song "Steady Rollin'" kinda of a bluegrass meets minutemen, but with lyrics like if "if you have throat, I've got a knife" deep in the tradition of murder ballads. Other songs like "Prodigal Sun".

You can get both of them online through the various music stores.
