Lester Raww from Arkansas fled to San Francisco to form The Pine Box Boys. Les reinvents the old murder ballads his mother used to sing him into a genre-shattering blend of bluegrass and rock that has been dubbed "Darkgrass" and "Horrorbilly". Upon returning from their recent European tour, The Pine Box Boys spent four days in the studio with The Alien Overlord recording Stab! These are what the boys call their "bar songs." They opted for a lean production, trying to capture the sound of a loud, angry acoustic band bent on killing. As with 2005's Arkansas Killing Time, this new album takes a whimsical look at murder and misery in a backwoods-y style. Although the songs have clearly been dragged, like a bloody sack, through some very tall bluegrass, they are unmistakably original.
