I'm Tired of You Satan


While idly browsing the old interweb the other day, I happened to notice that the splendidly named record label, Iron Mountain Analogue Research Facility, recently issued Volume 3 of their 'Hillbillies in Hell' compilation series. This was a surprise to me, as until that very moment I was unaware that there'd even been a Volume 2. I shall be chasing down these omissions from my collection forthwith, but in the meantime can heartily recommend Volume 1's tales of drug abuse, suicide and all manner of additional dark subject matters, performed by largely under-the-radar artists in a loosely Country / Rockabilly style. The fuzzy Gospel of 'I'm Tired of You, Satan', by the otherwise anonymous Wayne, Pat & Keith, is one of the album's jauntier moments.

Love it. Will have to check out the compilations myself. I'm betting the Louvin Brothers will feature prominently.

Fabulous stuff. They sound ever so slightly deranged, but in a good way...

This is hip!

That is brilliant. Love it and will try to get the album(s) some time. In the meantime, thanks for the download. Will be getting the gee-tar out to learn me that one.

Love it!

These look maybe similar to the God Less America collection which is also worth trying to find. . . .

Great album cover. Shockingly, the Louvin Brothers are nowhere to be found on any of these volumes, but there are plenty of great numbers. May have to get this one too

The Louvins wouldn't be tired of Satan because as they sing Satan is Real
This series looks right up my street
Like some of the old Trikont stuff

Brian said...

Like your point, CC. Now that's an album cover!

George said...

Tremendous. But I won't be buying it, the prices I can find are insane.

To Frank Jive and any other interested party, the album "God Less America" really is worth checking out. For UK buyers, the digital version is here:

And, no I don't a sales commission on this.
I bought the vinyl album on its' release and can tell you it's wonderfully OTT, but especially - Troy Hess' "Please Don't Go Topless, Mother", "Rock & Roll Killed My Mother" by The Hi Fi Guys, 8 Weeks in a Barroom by Ramblin' Red Bailey and the batshit crazy "Too Many Pills" by Arkey Blue & The Blue Cowboys. All those songs are more than awesome.

Blimey, that went down well! I intended posting something from the album ages ago, but the thought got lost in the pile. I'm glad I got around to it now though. Thanks to FurryBootsCityBoy for the 'God Less America' tip, which is also available on eMusic if anyone's interested - I'm downloading it as I type.

Bit late to this one but yeah - I adore that album cover and the song's got something - like the lyrics especially. Whilst familiar with the murder ballad thing, just looking at FurryBootsCityBoy's list of wonderful titles, I feel there is a whole world out there about which I had no idea!

Love it..sounds like a dated Hansome Family, in a nice way of course!
