Lyrics to the whole album

Guitar Tab to the whole album


Don't know who or what Bucky Fellini is, but the cover art is presumably intended to be pictures by Bucky, who is age 8 according to one of them.

Another of the pictures on the front cover shows a nitro burning funny car, a surfin' cow, a walrus, a countdown (a la Rocketship) and what is presumably Planet X.


One of the best in my opinion. Has some of my favourite DM songs... Jellyfish Heaven, City Of Mud, Tacoland, Watching Scotty Die. And the famous Surfin' Cow, of course. The only thing that spoils the album (in my opinion) is Instant Club Hit, which is kinda funny, but is annoying to listen to more than once in a week. Only a minor complaint though, which results in this album running second only to Beelzebubba.

Liner Notes:

This album contains reverb; Don't try this at home.
