In Their Words: “‘The Law Offices of Dewey Cheatum and Howe’ is another great song by Cass [McCombs], and a perfect vehicle for the Skiffle Players. He has an endless stream of songs in his notebook, and he showed it to us one night in the studio and we got it down within a couple of takes. The lyrics are hilariously cynical and ours is the right band to show them off. My favorite line is ‘I’ll be on my private island, near Macau, thanks to the law offices of Dewey Cheatum and Howe!!’ It’s a song that has everything we’re all about–funny, loose, funky, and sloppy in all the best ways.” —Neal Casal
