Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole is an EP by Martha Wainwright, with five tracks. It was released independently in 2004. Her father, Loudon Wainwright III, was the inspiration for the title track, which she wrote as a response to her father’s way of writing songs about his family, rather than tending to them.[1][2] Despite the sentiment, she collaborated a year earlier with Loudon on the song "You Never Phone" on his So Damn Happy album.

  • Note: Released originally as a 4 song EP (When The Day Is Short omitted) on the Drowned in Sound label (DiS0009).
