QUARRY MOUNTAIN DEAD RATS "COATTAILS" . . . . FROM THE MEAN STREETS OF MELBOURNE VIA THE MUSICAL BACKWOODS OF APPALACHIA AND THE HOME OF THE BLUEGRASS GENEPOOL . . . . FILE THIS ONE UNDER 'OZ KICKS ANOTHER WINNER' AND YOU'LL BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK . . . . THIS AIN'T NO PARTY, THIS AIN'T NO DISCO, THIS AIN'T NO FOOLIN AROUND . . . . PICK THAT FUCKER TIL YOUR FINGERS BLEED !!!
The J's ain't what they used to be but when it comes to 'Unearthing' serious truckloads of mega talented bands, Australia's National Broadcaster is still second only to its parent operation, the mighty Beeb in the Old dart, not even the States can lay claim to a legit national radio station with the musical integrity and commitment to the artists who struggle outside the bland and torpid corporate shitzone of commercial airplay for the recognition they deserve and would otherwise never receive . . . . enter these urban punkgrass kinghitters and their shit hot take on real roots music that started getting attention late last year on the Triple J network, before and after the recording and release of their debut album, "Bloodhound Killed My Squeezebox", these guys go off like a frog in a sock and I can just imagine them killing it at any bike related gig you could mention . . . . BF5 would be fucking perfect, how about it Mike and Grant . . . . get em over to the Ranch and rock the joint !!!! Plus, there's a helluva lotta facial hair going on, and clearly heaps of you guys dig the whole hirsute hairsuit fursuit thang.
