Hillbilly lowkey and hoedown punk rock, put the whoop to the holler and stop to cough up a lifetime of Lucky Strikes and Old Granddad, take me downtown and take me to the banks of the Rio Grande, traveling the teritory of their homeland Texas, a place all its own but also somewhere between Baton Rouge and the Mojave Desert, Tulsa and Tucson, Rich Crook's Memphis and Crazy Horse's Los Angeles, chuck a bottle out the window and then sink deep into the seat at the back of the Greyhound bus for a spell while your hungover head spins dreams of swinging on the porch back home. -- winch
This is live in the studio, versatile, weirdo country folk, cracked blues, vintage melancholy pop reminiscent of the FLAMING GROOVIES, BO DIDDLEY, MODERN LOVERS or so many others. It holds you like a octopus. You want to get out first, but then crawl back cause the world out there is worse. The GOLDEN BOYS are our favorite first "now" band we reissue with no openquestions at all. They may not be handsome. Check. They may not be in their twenties anymore. Check. Drummer quits the band to take greyhound bus back to Texas after the show. Check. Haha, they´re everything we love. "Whiskey Flower" is their second album, originally released in on Hook or Crook, US. The original first and only print run is gone. Thanks to Chris/Hook and Crook and the GOLDEN BOYS - we´re here to reissue this highlight now. In our little fan rocknroll paper doll world, the GOLDEN BOYS dressed as some undefined pretentious misled religious carpenters, sitting near the fields asking for a ride to get outta here to play a show with DEADLY SNAKES and REIGNING SOUND. We spin the vinyl when a new bottle of wine is opened, when we have to party and our hearts got broken. Now is our job to give europe, the world or just you another chance. Take it and give them as place to sleep when you these vagabonds. Stomp loud that we can welcome them with all their fuzzy organs, horns, melodeons, trumpets, fiddles, their desparate singing for the lonesome though rowdy songs. Limited edition 500 copies. That night, we expected them as premium handcraft rocknroll swagger, we´re tired from walking around town and talking friends into joining but the GOLDEN BOYS just swept away all expectations, exhaustion, plans, talk - as time stops - nothing matters anymore.
