Re-release of previously sold out "Country Bullshit" EP with added bonus track. Also includes the hellbilly hit "Pills I Took" which was covered by Hank Williams III.
"Those Poor Bastards Are the best Gothic Country I have heard yet to this day. The depressing gloomy vocals coming out of this drifter named Lonesome Wyatt has hints of Marilyn Manson to Nick Cave, Throwrag and maybe even a hint of a demented Adam Ant with a shot of a Pilled Up Johnny Cash... And the Minister is backing up Lonesome Wyatt with a style that is a cross between erie strung out folk music with a creepy blend of The Nightmare Before Christmas!!!!!!!!!" -Hank Williams III
"Wyatt and the boys have dished up one hot serving of backwoods Gothicism for all you little ladies and gents. This EP has Wyatt falling more into the genre he defines: gothic country. These songs are those sung in dank cemeteries by their musical residences. The first song, 'The Accident' draws heavily on the folk-gospel tradition, utilizing vocals reminiscent of Tom Waits' most off-kilter songs. 'Black Dog Yodel' tones things down, replacing country music's natural melancholia with nihilism. The stand-out track, 'Radio Country' addresses one of the greatest crimes in musical history: the commercialization and murder of true country music. This album is a must have for fans of traditional American music and/or old timey gothic aesthetics." - Finding Datura Report

Those Poor Bastards play miserable and primitive old-time gothic country music. Lonesome Wyatt (guitar, vocals) and The Minister (banjo, bass, etc) are both legally certified holiness preachers. If you're looking for slick, overproduced, commercial songs, you'd better cover your delicate little ears. Those Poor Bastards play it raw and they play it mean. "Country Bullshit" is their debut CD. Be a pal and support independent anti corporate country music.
