Aluminum Yee Haw


Where the gul-durned hell have I been?

Let's just say we've had a time of reflection, partially due to the cock-up from Blogger. Having lost my original site, links, and, well, just about everything, we debated on hanging the hat on the hook and calling it a day.

But, hell, nobody likes a whiner, so we figger it's about time to fire the site back up, break out the rhinestone shirts and Nudie suits, and hop back up on the rocking horse. Besides, who covers the gutbucket soul of Country better than the Mountain?

So thank you to the two or three folks who found us and stuck around while we got our shit back together. As a reward we've stolen a cue from the Good and Right Rev. Frost, and made all y'all a little mix. As a bonus, we're posting up another mix at our satellite site, Barstool Mountain, so hop on over there when the mood strikes. Regular posting will resume at both sites next week (no, really, it's true, i swear on the grave of Hank Williams).

One of the songs on the mix was originally a commercial for a prominent soda pop company. Can you guess which one?

Thanks again, and please enjoy (link to file follows the track listing).

Welcome Back!!!

I think a celebration is in order.
I will have to have a Pabst or four and listen to your mixes this weekend (before the Packer game of course).

Yea! You're back! The internet just wasn't the same without ya! You know what they say about falling off your barstool, you've gotta climb back on it.

Hank Williams is getting really anxious - and Frederick Pabst is sweating it over there at Barstool Mountain.
