I used to think that The Exploited was the consummate manifestation of 'Stupid' until I saw and heard this record!This makes wattie and the boys seem like Philosophers.
If that isn't the most Insane album cover ever released on a major label I dunno what is!? Also, I notice that the Louvin Brothers seem to actually be in Hell!?
This kinda stuff frightens the shit out of me.Satan may be 'real'(in fact there's no credible evidence pointing in that direction), but Rednecks are certainly very Real. They exist in a post-cowboy Saudi Arabian style bubble,where you are in serious danger of extreme violence if you're Gay, Black, or a godless Atheist. There's nothing more horrific than Stupidity,and this album is it.
Ira and Charlie Loudermilk were The Louvin Brothers,a bluegrass harmony duo that existed from 1955 until 1963 when they broke up due to Ira's volatile temper.I dread to think what brother Ira, ironically the acronym for a catholic terrorist organistation in Ireland, was capable of if he was confronted by a communist,or any of the usual suspects previously mentioned.Thankfully, Ira met Satan after a car wreck in Jefferson City in 1965,and I doubt he was singing "Are You Afraid To Die" as he smashed through the windshield,just before he found out that Satan and God most certainly are NOT real.
