Danbert Nobacon & the Bad Things "Woebegone"

(Verbal Burlesque) It's hard to choose the best thing about the gruff, vivid storysongs of former Chumbawumber and Pine Valley Cosmologist Nobacon (not to be confused with Nobunnycon, the annual gathering of the masked garage popster's fans, or Mo'bacon-con, the bacon lovers convention). But I'll go out on a limb and say that what I really love is how when he does his full-on Tom Waits channeling Nobacon's voice actually sounds more like Bobcat Goldthwaite's, and, even better, his sensitive singing voice sounds eerily like that of Austrian monster rocker Lightning Beat-Man.
