Crime Writing

Poisonville video of Hammett novel


Poisonville makes music about crime fiction, by crime fiction writers. Based around my songwriting and playing, Poisonville does original songs about greats like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler and about hot new crime writers like Jasmine Schwartz. This song is co-written by The Talented David Brinn, who also plays accordion on it. The corrupt town where Hammett’s first great novel takes place is appropriately known as Poisonville. “Poisonville” hopes this sounds like hoboes playing in a Poisonville speakeasy back in 1929 when Hammett wrote the book. Filmed by Cai. Listen to more Poisonville songs.
