Buckle In The Bible Belt – Vinyl

Complete the trilogy! Lots of people asked and Bloodshot Records is finally released a LIMITED EDITION run of our first record, Buckle in the Bible Belt, on VINYL! It is big. It is beautiful. It sounds AMAZING and older than it already is.

Not only will you get “the hits” – wink, wink, nudge, nudge – such as “St. Nick on the Fourth in a Fervor”, “Caney Mountain” and “Falling In”, BUT you will also get our cover of our heroes, the incredible BIG SMITH and their tune “12 Inch 3 Speed Oscillating Fan”. The record will also come with a DOWNLOAD CARD so that you can put it on your iPod.

Click the album art below or here to order. BTW… Lennon’s brother Chance illustrated the album artwork, which looks even cooler on the big cover.
