Our Rating:
Just when you thought all of the corny, parodic incongruous comedy hybrids had been done, or had otherwise been done, made dead and buries, punkability merchants Tex Pistols return with a new EP of hillbilly knees-ups to raise funds for UK Prostate Cancer.

The lead track from which this EP of ‘classic’ country and takes its title is a ‘new Cajun style’ version of ‘There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis’. Taking such imaginative source material and presenting it in a predictably novelty way yields precisely the results one might expect, and suffice it to say it doesn’t get any better. Really who needs this shit?

The sound quality is variable, too – ‘Train Kept a Rolling’ is a really muddy recording and quieter than the preceding tracks, and actually sounds worse than the live cut which wraps up the EP.

It’s a good cause, but it’s hard to find anything good about this bucketful of shit, and not even a portion of mushy peas couuld redeem it.
