"I just want them to feel like how they feel when they see something that's peculiar," he says. "That package of odd and scary and funny."
im an obsessed fan
and again with the second album
A track called The Pisgee Nest is about an incident in the mountains near where he grew up, in which a policeman's daughter was pimped out by her boyfriend to the rest of the village. During the song, Gibson is the sweaty-palmed bystander narrating from the side of the bed: "We took a little more, I must confess/We can't do what you want for any less/The state trooper's daughter and The Pisgee Nest/And there was a fight over who went next. Uh ..." he sings over a wailing slide guitar. "I was truly shocked by it so I wanted to write it down, but it's not something I want to glorify as it's still disturbing. It was actually called The Pisgee Rest but everyone called it the 'nest', it's just a swarm of bad," he grimaces.
