Get Ready for the Beaumonts (Arclight)

Looking like they rifled ZZ Top's video wardrobe, the Beaumonts' boozy country sounds like the bastard sons of the Hickoids showing up to take your daughter on her first date. Fueled by enough har-har jokes about queers, ugly women, smoking speed, and bestiality to make Dash Rip Rock blush, the titles tell the story: "Money for Drugs," "Big Fake Boobs," "Strip Search." Custom-made for fans with little else to do but "get drunk and high and fuck around all day."
