first Bluegrass Thrash Metal Punk band begins with a satisfactory CD
under every aspect, crazy and giving fun galore.
"Ole Slew Foot" mixes the 3 styles excellently, while
"Rocky Top" needs to be remembered because of its great
refrain. A woman sings in the punk "Y'All Come"; how
much I liked this fuckerette's moan; really a twisted song to the ears
of a hot Italian stallion like me!
"Man of Constant Sorrow" is the typical drunk pogo
track, absolutely the best, and it's not a case it was chosen for the
band's videoclip here included; heavy and vertigo causing; it does give
you the feeling of being pulled and pushed to every direction at the
same time in a crowded quarrelsome bar.
"Long Black Veil" shows another side of Uncle Fucker,
the melancholic one, represented by the artwork's inner photo depicting
the 3 guys and the girl dead hanged in a sunny park. The band's brightness
and the massiveness and sadness of a slow metal are here possible together
owing to an "Eraserhead"-like fiddle.
I believe John Zorn would especially appreciate "Wheel Hoss",
a bluegrass punk song including a fiddle almost sounding like a sax.
"Tennessee Stud" shows another female vocals, it's
sorta like 4 cowboys tag teaming and gangbanging L7; one more time I
must stress out the remarkable vocal lines. "Love Come Home"
is on the same sonic coordinates, standing out by very lively raw guitars,
whereas "Mountain Girls" is nothing but a cheerful
song with a dobro intervention; it'll make you take out from the closet
your boots, cowboy hats and lazos. The fuckerettes won't say no to you,
not at all, man!
"R.I.M.S.B.A.", I don't know why, reminds of Cadillacs
dirty with mud, parked in an isolated US village; this is another composition
enriched by another superb guitar solo by the funambulic long-double-plated
Grizzly Izzy, proving UF are hard-core serious musicians and not only
freaks. By the way, a praise also goes to the banjo players appearing
on this CD, closed by "Abilene", a village I'd honestly
never heard, on which this unmissable ballad is based upon; even most
traditional girls will dig it.
With the arrival of more and more ultraprolific immigrants, even the
seemingly vast US prateries are disappearing to make way for hotels
and houses as it already happened in Europe long ago, yet Uncle Sam's
great-great-grand-children keep doing their great-great-grand-father's
job and they like to wave the flags of the States where lots of countrymen
still live and survive. Actually, I dare to say that Uncle Fucker seem
to be able to cleverly bridge the 19th century and 2 different new millennium's
genres, therefore...thumbs and crests up for them!
Oh, I almost forgot to say that the enhanced CD offers not only the
a.m. clip, but also a lot of pictures portraiting the band live or off
stage, among which a wonderful photo of the Fuckerettes displaying mesh
nylons and a typical cowboy look that makes me drool more than when
Homer Simpson's before some fatty sausages and puts his tongue out hanging
askew. Such girls are so hot that they could make a dead man resuscitate
for sure, so this is one more reason to contact Izzy's crew a.s.a.p.,
and enjoy this MF UF CD!
