"Although this collection has been rumored to be a fake collaboration recorded in the '90s to sound like it was from the '60s, this scenario could not be further from the truth. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, truth is better than fiction. These Memphis high school losers were listening to Captain Beefheart, Frank Zappa, and the like in the early '70s and were not going to let their redneck roots or their lack of musicianship stop them from creating their vast body of work in Elvis Presley's shadow in the Memphis suburb of Whitehaven. Somebody in the band was dumb enough to save the tapes and almost 25 years later they saw the light of day. If you are looking for extreme music, here it is, in its raw, warbling, neo-psychedelic glory. Fuzzed-out, lo-fi, and nearly incomprehensible, this captures the true spirit of independent music."  - Epitonic
