Mark Charles Heidinger of macabre folksters Vandaveer recently participated in our 5:1 Interview series, which in turn came on the back of the recent release of their brilliant album of reinterpreted and re-imagined murder ballads, Oh, Willie, Please…
The band have made a second track from it available for free download – so here is the perfectly told, tragic tale of the murder of Omie Wise.
He kissed her and hugged her and he turned her around
Then he pushed her in deep waters where he knew that she would drown
John got on his pony and away he did ride
And the screams of Omie went down by his side
