Introducing... Muleskinner Jones 

"Country twang, lolloping boogie and Beefheartian astringency... may be the British Johnny Dowd." [The Independent]

"Sci-fi B movies soundtracked by gonzo country. Recommended. ****" [Q]

"Raw, visceral, brooding and quite unique..." [Maverick]

"My ears are too delicate for this monotone dirge. 3/10" []

Skunkworks recording artist est 1999. Self-released four LPs and two EPs to both critical acclaim and a critical hammering whilst holding down a day job and raising a family. Makes no money from this shit.

Likes music (a lot). Also likes movies, comics and video games. Draws and paints occasionally. Sometimes spotted flatpicking guitar (badly) at bluegrass sessions in the Bath/Bristol area.
