Limited Edition Compilation
From the people who brought you 'Hillbillies In Hell'...
War, Patriotism, Pathos, Paranoia and Propaganda in the Country Music Experience.
Vinyl Relics recovered from abandoned Fall-Out Shelters and excavated from beneath wastelands of Radioactive Rubble.
Country Music Artefacts from the Cold War Era: Hyper-Patriotic Anthems, Delirious Cowpoke Agitprop Diatribes, Peacenik Protestations and Heartfelt Homefront Lamentations.
Years in the making - 'Cold War Countdown' presents 30 tempestuous tirades of Red-Scare Pinko-Subversion, Iron Curtain-Clad Simian Freedom Fighters, Bearded Despots, Flower Power Fall-Out, the War Wizened, the Walking Wounded and Heart-Wrenching Fallen Heroes.
Most often originally waxed on microscopic labels and distributed in minuscule amounts, these Broadside Balladeers decry the Worldwide Communist Conspiracy, Apocalyptic Holocausts, Bureaucratic Mission Creep and Questionable Personal Grooming.
A Red-Hot fission of Atomic-Era 45s - some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your End-Times Bunker listening pleasure.
