VARIOUS ARTISTS: Attack of the One Man Bands: 2 x CD

May 10, 2007

Four continents worth of OMB tracks guaran-fuckin’-teed to put the boogie in your brain, the shake in your ass, the wiggle in your walk, and knock loose the teeth in your head. This CD is the musical companion to Rock N Roll Purgatory #15, the “lost” OMB issue, and it is a doozy. If you’ve never heard a one man band act before, you’d be hard pressed to find a better introduction to the genre anywhere. The sheer volume—fifty-eight different acts playing one song each—is staggering. If you’ve been listening to this type of stuff since Hasil Adkins started doing the Hunch, you’ll be rolling around happy as a pig in shit to the wild and crazy versions of OMB mayhem contained on these discs. Features songs by Bloodshot Bill, Haunted George, Toothless George, O Lendario Chucrobillyman, Ottoboy the One Man Trash Band, BBQ, and Trainwreck Washington.
