Andrew Mueller is a journalist and author whose books sell badly enough to keep him in journalism. He also does things on the radio, and plays in a country band sometimes.
Debut waxing by the world's least likely country band, assisted by stellar cast of special guests. A concept album, inasmuch as all other albums are a con, 'cept this one.
"Really rather good, in a barnstorming, country-punk sort of way. . . a highly capable ensemble."
- The Quietus
"Guaranteed to raise a chuckle, if not a tear."
"A more than capable debut - allusive country-tough songs."
"The Blazing Zoos are undoubtedly fun, but they also have depth. . .everything from Mueller's extensive use of brackets to the band's loving recreation of classic country riffs bespeaks sincerity."
