Classics of western literature av Berkeley Breathed

Now wait for last year av Philip K. Dick

Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.
Isaac Asimov

'Wonderful ... a heady mix of Flann O'brien, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe and Ken Campbell, but with an inbuilt irreverence and indelicacy that is unique - and makes it the long-awaited, heavy smoker's answer to The Lord of the Rings'
Time Out om Robert Rankin

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
William Gibson

The three-legged stool of understanding is held up by history, languages, and mathematics. Equipped with these three you can learn anything you want to learn. But if you lack any one of them you are just another ignorant peasant with dung on your boots.
Robert Heinlein

'An urban myth. Like the dyslexic devil worshipper who sold his soul to Santa.' - Robert Rankin (Raiders of the Lost Car Park))

Alternativ country

Jeg tenkte jeg skulle snakke litt om The Meat Purveyors Jeg snublet over disse folka da jeg fant deres medley av Madonna låter. "The Madonna Trilogy" (som inneholder: Like a virgin, Lucky star og Burning up), på samleplata "Making singles, drinking doubles."

Bandet beskriver seg selv slik på plateselskapets hjemmeside:

Whiskey-fueled and case-hardened deep in the heart of Texas, TMP boast a personal history that would shame Fleetwood Mac, and wood shedding that sends so-called roots revivalists, snooty bluegrass purists, and alt-country poseurs into paroxysms of self-doubt and years of expensive therapy.

De har også en hang til gode platetitler og covere:

Pain by numbers (2004)

All relationships are doomed to fail (2002)

More songs about building and cows (1999)

Sweet in the pants (1998)

Dette er IKKE tradisjonell bluegrass. De hevder selv at de er bluegrassens redningsmenn. Alt tyder,så langt, på at de har lykkes.

Hør The Madonna Trilogy her
