Out of the ashes of World War II, post-war Corporate U.S.A would sully it's hands with anything in search of a buck. Even Hillbilly music... Here, reissued for the first time, are 18 of the grimiest, most delicious slabs of Hillbilly misery, debauchery and mayhem to grace the Columbia Records imprint. From the dusty Rhinestone Noir of Rocky Porter's "The World Is A Monster" and Johnny Bond's "All I Can Do Is Cry" to the strident defiance of Polly Possum's "Don't Talk To Me About Men" and the feral cowpoke racket of The Maddox Brothers "Ugly And Slouchy." Years in the making - 'The World Is A Monster' presents 18 timeless paeans to dissolution, absolution and wanderlust - swinging, celebratory Honky Tonk odes and maudlin tear-in-your-beer-jerkers. Remastered with love and care from the original tapes in a deluxe collector's edition with rare photos and memorabilia. A forgotten cache of subterranean 78s and marginal 45s - some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your guilty listening pleasure.
