- Artist: The Cooters
- Format: CD
- Release Date:8/9/2005
The Cooters are a trio of punk metal bastards, willingly exiled to the backwoods of Mississippi to spread the gospels on the front lines. Being their third and best full-length release, this new CD was written and constructed over the course of three years and skillfully recorded by Tom Queyja in Oxford, Mississippi. The Cooters have been blowing away unsuspecting audiences since 1993, formed when bass player Newter Cooter returned to his home territory after living for some time in Minneapolis (where he previously formed the band PISSED and helped edit Profane Existence Magazine, not to mention his own 'zine Assault With Intent to Free). The Cooters first EP was released in 1994 and have since been carefully crafting a sound that combines elements of punk, metal, and even some elements of classic southern blues, taking on serious political issues with humor and wit. This is NOT your typical Profane Existence Records release, which of course makes us even more proud to take part. This is it: The Cooters album that almost wasn't. Recorded between 2001 and 2003 the DIY way: no budget, no studio, and nobody to help. Nobody but Tom Queyja that is, who found an old, abandoned wood house, right in the middle of Oxford, Mississippi, and converted it into a functioning studio. Tom took us in and recorded hours upon hours of Cooters songwriting, jamming, and rocking out with some of our close buddies. It was hard, certainly not easy, and we have some scars on our souls from it, but somehow we managed to pull it all together and whittle the tapes into a cohesive collection that kicks ass. Profane Existence Records have released the CD, and we couldn't be more honored. This album is 100% D.I.Y. COOTERS PUNK METAL!
