It’s the B-side of the American Revolution, the song playing on the other side of the record, while you thought you were listening to what’s on top.
America’s first serial killers, the Harpe Brothers, are fighting a private war in the woods of Tennessee against the doomed democracy of the tyrant George Washington. As Big and Little Harpe, with their murderous and beautiful companions, the Roberts twins, cut a bloody swath across Satan’s hometown of Knoxville, a preacher’s daughter is ready for a little bit more… excitement in her life.
But the record of history is scratched and jumping around and it’s all playing at once, and it’s only held together by the sweet crooning of your host, your MC, a man known only as The Rockabilly Boy, who bears a not-coincidental resemblance to a certain King of rock and roll…
Fast-paced, bloody, scored by a live rockabilly band, Americamisfit is the side of the country you only see out of the corner of your eye. Blink, and it’s gone.
