about

"Back in the days of hair grease, muscle cars and chewing toothpicks was something called analogue recording --- remembered fondly for cranking sweaty, primitive and raunchy records for horny teenagers. Big John Bates dug it so much that he brought it back on this debut album. The result is: sweaty, primitive, raunchy and horny. And good for that, because this album's as fun as a midnight drag race fueled by a fifth of bourbon. Big John Bates is proudly old school in his approach to making music and the lifestyle around it. The experience can't be complete without a sense of humor, however, and BJB has that in spades." Exclaim Magazine
