SOMETHIN' FISHY FIVE-FOOT WAVES MR. ALL-SCIENCE FISHERMAN THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY PASS IT ON
Editor's note: BRILLIANT! A record about fishin'. Trout, tuna, red snapper...how can you go wrong!?!? And wrong it isn't to like these quirky songs. Country songs with slight variations and innovations plus Mary Jane Alm's sex-ay lisp adds just that much more spice to this fillet of slow.
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!
