Consumer Guide Reviews:

Southern Evil [Gray Boy, 2000]
Right, I didn't spell their name right--that would be aiding and abetting these been-and-gone scumbags, whose slogan is, "Why wear one if you are one?" That the term they prefer is "dirtbag" says everything we need know about how creamy they cum. I hope the repo man is already on whatever dumb shit they bought with their Kid-Rock-wannabe, David-Allan-Coe-nephew, ooh-now-I'm-really-impressed advance, which I also hope cost some a&r fool his job. Another slogan: "Abuse chicks, smell like hell, and drink Mad Dog." Yet another: "Give this record a spin and don't take it too seriously." Oh, I get it--they were Only Joking. D+
