Friends, Welcome to the Bluegrass Apocalypse. Split Lip Rayfield, with their banjo, acoustic guitar, and stand-up bass attack have been wowing the folks around the Wichita and Lawrence areas for years. Maybe you\'re titillated by the prospect of a 3-piece acoustic outfit somehow managing to sound like an earthquake. Lightning quick playing (but quality is NOT substituted for speed), romps about cars, trucks, pinball, girls, and coffee. (What better way to work off that simmering anger about your boss?) This DEBUT record contains some of the LIP\'s most explosive songs, the ones they pull out at shows when they want to bump the crowd from complacent exultation to outright madness.
\"Take a mix of the soulful nasality of Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass boys, the speedy aggression of a Metallica, and the rural realism of an Erskine Caldwell, and you\'re still a few notches short on the dangedest-thing-you-ever-heard scale.\" Bud Norman, Wichita Eagle
