Synopsis

Album Description
Puttin' the ass back in bluegrass, these Austinites arm themselves with fiddles, mandolins, and guitars and run headlong into the battle of Left Hand Hate and Right Hand Love. On the right hand, there are exquisite renditions of anthems from Merle, Elvis, and Bill (Monroe, that is). On the left hand, there are the profane gutter brawls with songs about shallow graves, winning the Sweepstakes, pot-smoking, and other topics deemed unsavory by contemporary bluegrass standards.

CD Reviews

Great Album
06/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pay no attention to the official review above. Who ever wrote it should stick to their Ronnie Milsap CDs and leave real country alone. This album anything but boring. I saw them live in Kansas City and man, let me tell you, what a show. Sweet in the Pants does a good job of capturing that same energy."
FIVE STARS PLUS! *********

"As another reviewer wrote, ignore the official review above. That stuffy reviewer must have been undergoing painful surgery on his funnybone when he listened to this album. This female-fronted band is terrific! Whip fast music, clever smart and funny songs, the album is sharp as a needle in the eye. The lyrics alone are marvelous, and every time I listen to this album I catch another great line or clever turn of phrase which makes me laugh. But the music--a combo of bluegrass, country, and folk--makes your foot start tapping while your brain leaps to appreciate all of the great lyrics. "Go Out Smokin'" starts with the line: You are the lamest judge I have appeared before." And I defy anyone to listen to Lady Muleskinner without wanting to move at least six parts of their body. Check these folks out for sure! I have four of their albums and though they are all great, this one is the best."

"this band was the *unknown* opening for the old 97s. we were SCREAMING for more. she was shaking her tush and winking at the crowd while crooning *i'm more man than you'll ever be and more woman than you'll ever get* - what a great time. and FILTHY jokes between songs. my husband and i rushed to buy this cd the minute they left the stage."
