Let me tell you a story...
Right after the 9-11 attack I get an e mail from BILL MOSELEY
You should all know that he's not only an actor but a musician, mostly known for his band CORNBUGS with BUCKETHEAD!
well it seems he had written a track titled BOOTS UPON THE GROUND and asked me to help him find an artist to record it..
I searched and searched but honestly, I don't think anyone could ever really do BILL's lyrics justice, well other than himself!
SO I am very happy to see that it has finally been recorded and can be found on this CORNBUGS OPUS!
Is the fourth installment in the CORNBUGS disco!
It's about time this band got an actual fully manufactured/produced/and professionally packaged release!
I know this review seems a bit broken and scatterbrained but hell you listen to this band for very long and you'll understand!
THOUGH I think SPOT THE PSYCHO was their best release this album is no DUD!
a bit of history first... BILL MOSELEY plays the character CHOP TOP in second TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE movie, until HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES this was BILL's most famous character!
This is the basis of CORNBUGS
performing and writing in CHARACTER the duo stomped through many songs about murder and bacon!
NOW with this release I'm not sure if BILL is in the character of OTIS/CHOPTOP or just his plain ol twisted sense of humor self!
Either way this is a great album!
The first track is long as hell and very anthemic
RIDERS OF THE WHISTLING SKULL
Seems like bill is living out some childhood Roy Rogers meets Dracula fantasy.... and BUCKETHEADs guitar is still fucking awesome!
WASTELAND is a different one for CORNBUGS mixing ACOUSTIC guitar a great beat and BILL's hallucinogenic lyrics to make one helluva song... I really like this one.. probably my fave on the record!
this actually reminds me a lot of THE MOSELEY BROTHERS BAND!
Bringing back the acoustic guitar, this makes me think that THE CORNBUGS should do an entire ACOUSTIC ALBUM!
hell BILL could pull of a full on children's record!
He has that weird ass TIM BURTON it's ok for my children to be listening to this but if we think too hard about it we just might realize what they're listening to!!
This record is truly the best produced of the CORNBUGS disco!
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU ON BILL AND WHERE CAN I GET SOME!!!
Rockin' the Acoustic again we've got DIRTY SPERM RAG!
Let's just leave this one laying next to the couch!
You know I really fucking love this acoustic stuff!
And whoever the hell PINCH FACE is I like these drums!
This song makes me think of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT don't know why.. haha...
BOOTS UPON THE GROUND
Finally I get to hear what BILL intended with BOOTS UPON THE GROUND
This song makes me think a lot of PRIMUS!!
No more ACOUSTIC guitar on this one!!
CRAB CLAW MARACAS
I really do think either CHOP TOP finally grew up or this is BILL at his GOOFIEST
Keeping that weird ass distorted bass guitar sound let's sing about JESUS haha.. this should have been in THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST!
ok maybe we're all going to hell!
DOWN DOWN DOWN
Sludgy and swirley and well fucked up!
(I WANT ME A) CLONE
more wishful thinking!
ARM TORN OFF BY A TRAIN
going back to that heavy ass funky buckethead guitar and BILL's rants!
a bit more reminiscent of the older CORNBUGS stuff.. of course this brings the addition of an ORGAN!
with a name like that how can it not be good!
the guitar in this one is kinda like country in fast forward in parts and then there is the IRON BUTTERFLYish organs and weird as solos!
HIPPIE DAYS ARE GONE
a lot of stoners will love the guitar romp in this one!
hell a lot of stoners will love this album, I think they might relate!
bring on a little IGGY POP & THE STOOGES for the last track!
old school PUNK RAWK noisy guitar here for all to enjoy!
What can I say?
WELCOME BACK CORNBUGS!
DEAD PUPPY RECORDS owes our entire start to you!
and nice fucking record!
