Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
Long days and nights in the sausage factory. The band meets. The members and their common love of the Speedo. The tragic death of the kazoo player. The cellist cries out for a sex change, in a sideways fashion. A fork in the road, followed by a spoon and a plate. The first, middle and last TV dinner. The band dyes their hair a shade of ginger.
... Born in the holler they were, says I. Four sons, three mothers, a couple of cousins and one shit-kicking country-fried folk band. [THE END]
