After the definitive indie band Archers of Loaf broke up, Eric Bachmann went on to release albums under the moniker, Crooked Fingers.

Crooked Fingers sounds very similar to the final Archers album, White Trash Heroes. A Tom Waits type singer talking about how depressing the world really is.

Example: "Make way for the pigeon kicker splattering the city walls nothing ever seemed so pretty..."

Crooked Fingers albums are released on Warm Records.
