Janet Batch has man troubles – and not even the good sort. As she explains “I get up at six and I work ’til six at night and all you do is bitch if your dinner ain’t fixed just right.” We weren’t really sure why he was complaining – surely if he just practices enough he’ll eventually get the recipe right. However, as Janet continued to explain it slowly became clearer “All I know is I got a man who ain’t never did a goddamn thing for me.”
Janet Batch’s rollicking honky-tonk of a song is taken from her new album ‘You Be The Wolf’ which sees singer from New York’s Finger Lakes region, spin tales inspired by working-class life, drawing on hardscrabble stories of her youth in the American Rust Belt.
