John Dwyer is amazing.

"Ok, for those of you who do not know - THIS ALBUM IS NOT ACTUALLY A LIVE RECORDING! The Ginger Minge is a fictional place. The thing that would make this "Live" at all would be the fact that it was recorded without overdubs.
Second, this is a really fun album, and to the best of my knowledge the longest of their albums (clocking in at around 20 minutes)
This album is really fuzzy sounding (purposely, that is their live sound, and Dwyer didn't like the overproduced sounds and tried to capture a sound similar to that of a show)
It's really too bad that The Coachwhips broke up - they were really fun. And i think Spin Magazine or something like that said they "make the White Stripes sound like they were produced by Phil Spector" - i'd say that's a pretty accurate description.
Raw, Awesome, Blue/Rockabilly-esque punk."
