Editor's note: these guys rawk! In a rockabilly sort of way which Webb calls "swampedelic"(a combination of country, surf guitar and rock & roll). This guy is active in both music and film and has an award winning documentary to his credit. He should be active in album cover design as well because this sleeve is a great accompaniment to an excellent record. This album is so cool that even the paper sleeve that holds the record is hip as a hot stone.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
