"This is one of the weirdest furshluggin' albums you're ever likely to hear. From the terrifying, howling accapella cover of "John the Revelator" to the giddy "Hobo Train", this is thoroughly revisionist folk music. The boys of Rube dredge up old traditions, dust them off, then expose them to deadly radiation and twisted drugs, unleashing the mutant offspring to wreak havoc on their listeners' ears. If you can imagine a jug band with tablas and experimental, hand-built electronic instruments, you're on your way to understanding this mindboggling band. And if you dug Tom Waits' last few albums, you'll probably appreciate the deep-fried flavor and intense musical eccentricity of the album."
