Today's Artist of the Week is Dead Moon, the defiantly lo-fi doomy-punk-folk garage band from Clackamas, Oregon. The lead singer has been in one band or another for 40-odd years, always on the margin between minor cult status and complete obscurity. Songs of death, loss, hard living, and hard luck.

Who on your list is Artist of the Week?
