Their friends and fellow band members are Zebulon Whatley and whatever other miserable shits happen to be milling around the shack when he's smitten with the Holy Spirit. The shack is barren at present but honorary shits include Lonesome Wyatt, Seth Fleming, Dad van Ottn, Tamara Cauble, Michael McConnell, and a putrid crawlspace full of other discarded minor characters.
Their influences come from The BIBLE, Poverty, Despair, Life as a gangrenous limb on the body of society, and revenge. Never forget revenge.
Drunk with Fear, and Sick with Dread!
