It’s a 70s style outlaw county album but featuring some of the dirtiest lyrics you will ever hear! However, it’s not all fun and games as Blag also talks about the July 4 slaughter in his hometown of Highland Park IL, and he gets political for a minute. With music from The Dwarves and Blag as Ralph Champagne.

Let’s just say that Neil wasn’t too impressed by the Amyl show… With music by The Crumbs, Die Kreuzen, Agent Orange, Angry Samoans, Ganser, The Briefs and The Apers. And sorry for the messed up version 1 of this. Dunno how that happened!
