ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
the founders of atlanta’s redneck underground return to the airwaves with their third album of classic country music. “the dark side of the moonpie” was recorded at rob gal’s snack n’ shack, and once again the mighty convicts deliver a delightful mixture of pure honky tonk two-steppers, traditional acoustic ballads, and a couple of rockers thrown in for good measure.

lead vocalist slim chance, bassist phil anderson, and drummer bryan brownlow are joined by a virtual “who’s who” of the atlanta music scene. guests include guitarist and harmony singer jon byrd, doug morton (acoustic guitar) and angie goodale (drums) of ion avenue, bill fleming on pedal steel, terri onstad on harmony vocals and cello, rob gal on lead guitar, slim’s 73 year old dad jimmy kelly on harmony vocals, and brother rick kelly on dobro.

what the critics are saying:
"these guys were one of the main movers of atlanta's redneck underground scene of country music mavericks and americana renegades. the band is back with a third album of teary, beery honky tonk and the occasional rocker called "dark side of the moon pie." it's pretty tasty, and, while its namesake goes down real good with orange soda, you're probably better off chasing the album with an ice-cold pabst blue ribbon."
shane harrison - atlanta journal constitution

"i would be very hard pressed to pick a favorite song off of moonpie because there's not a single cut that i don't like. if forced to choose, the lovely and poignant “heaven got a brand new honky tonk angel,” “she loves country music (more than she loves me)” and “unfinished business” would be in a dead heat for first place. ...“moonpie” brings me back to the lush country of my youth."
deb sommers - twangzine

"from the opening slither of steel strings to slim's unruffled croon swimming in equal parts whiskey and lovelorn tears, "flat on the floor" and "unfinished business" billow in bittersweet tales of love and drunken woe. "i hate to see you go" and a cover of the paine bros.' "don't sell my daddy no more whiskey" rock out with polite and proper southern irreverence."
chad radford - creative loafing
