BIGFOOT MEETS INDUSTRIAL ORANGE


























This album has so many urban legends associated with it that people forget that BIGFOOT is a rural legend. Mistakes abound. Too many mistakes. Time for some correcting.

This album does not have a version of the "Uga-Chuga" song on it. No one from Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show performed on this album. (Whether or not Slash of Guns N' Roses fame modeled his look on Dr. Hook isn't a question to be answered here.)There is a song on this album entitled "Run Away," but it's not to be confused "Runaway Sister" or "Sister Runaway"--if, indeed, there are actually songs with those titles.

When it first hit the market, this album was most famous for a hootenanny called "Shredded on the Trotline When Melvin Gunned the Boat Engine," a song that received a lot of radio play. Personally, the song grossed me out--"Give my liver to fish," yuck!

But critics have returned to this album for something called wavesonic present in such tracks as "Chainsaw Fiddler," "Clucked the Robot Chicken," and "Get the Dodge Out of Hell."

In other words, there's evidence on this album that rural thrash does exist "In a drainpipe with a tin awning."

But wait! If you think BIGFOOT is reason enough that you might risk your life by running away from the Walking Boss, you'll love the cover tune, "BIGFOOT MEETS INDUSTRIAL ORANGE":

Down the highway in your orange PJs, picking up trash,
When along comes BIGFOOT, holy shit! When along comes BIGFOOT!
Run now Industrial Orange, what are the bloodhounds going to do?
Don't stop for the Walking Boss, even if he threatens to shoot you.

Yes, BIGFOOT's nasty big. Get it running in your collection.
