Coming Up: "Hillbillies in Hell: The Rapture - Country Music's Tormented Testament 1952-1974"

Out Oct. 19. Order now from Amazon.


From the backwoods brimstone labyrinth comes 'Hillbillies In Hell: The Rapture' - a blazing collection of psychedelic pedal-steel guitars, rapturous Gospel odes, She-Devils, possessed minors, hayseed barroom homicides, hallucinogenic nightmares and desperate souls. Originally waxed on microscopic labels and distributed in minuscule amounts, these troubled and forgotten troubadours sing of drug-fueled delusions, suicidal ideation, deathly rivers and Satan's perpetual torments. Years in the making - 'Hillbillies In Hell: The Rapture' presents 34 testaments of benighted sinners, timeless tribulations, bottomless graves and the tall, tall flames of eternal damnation. A Luciferian cache of subterranean 45s - some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your primordial listening pleasure.
