This debut album is the deviant fuzz-folk manglings and disco-punk-rock-blues of Somerset multi-instrumentalist Billy Shinbone.

The album funnels his twin passions of old country & '60s psychedelia through the rusty plumbing of a DIY musical approach & his love of a twisty lyric.

Apart from a couple of songs that make use of some musically talented friends, Billy plays all instruments.

From banjo and accordion to bowed electric sitar and the clanging of an old motorcycle sprocket.

The drums are kept simple & primitive. No cymbals at all, no kick drum. Just a floor tom, a snare drum & assorted percussion.

The project first seeded itself when Billy (aka Jesse Budd) spent time touring in the USA with arty psychedelic popsters Flipron & found himself falling in love with the old Country & Cajun music he was hearing in the bars of Texas & Tennessee.

"Music as good as that just makes you want to join in. But I don't really fit in that world.

So I've tried to invent my own world where a pink suit wearing, poetry reading, cocktail drinking surrealist like me can somehow bring my electric sitar to the Honkytonk & not get my head kicked in."
