In Case You Missed It – Weekly Series!!
I love outlaw country. Love it! I grew up in Podunk, Kentucky, and the best radio station signal came from a country station about 20 miles away. I’m sure that if my grandparents had a better radio, I could have listened to other stations when I went to visit, but the already 30-plus-year-old radio that played all weekend long was always stuck on that same station…93.3 WKYQ – 24-Karat Country!
They even had a rabbit as a mascot. I got to grow up listening to Willie, Waylon, and the boys. This is back when it was “just country.” Wheeler Walker, Jr’s ‘Redneck Shit’ is a throwback to those old days… and then, a lot more… Be afraid…Be very afraid. You may think you know outlaw country, but you haven’t heard anything like this.
This is some of the most raunchy, dirty, and homoerotic – yep, homoerotic – madness I’ve ever heard. It has all the stereotypes of the South you’ve ever thought of, plus some that even I’ve never heard of. This is sister-fucking, Tranny-fucking, pussy-eating, dick-sucking, zit-popping insanity. I never thought that a country album would require a certain knowledge of who you wanted to share it with.
I’d almost be more comfortable asking someone if the growth on my taint looked infected, and then ask them for detailed commentary, than share this with the guy in the office that likes what passes for country these days. Matthew, you definitely picked the right guy. I laughed my ass off all the way through, and then listened again, so I could hear the stuff I missed while I was laughing, and then laughed some more. If you are faint of heart, liver, butthole, spleen, pituitary, etc, you should refrain from listening to this album. If bad, naughty words make you cringe, and run like a little whiny bitch, you should never consider even thinking about this album. If you have that type of sense of humor that makes all your friends send you the weird shit they find on the internet, then this album is for you.
