Album Review

Ever wonder what the Misfits would sound like if they were a bluegrass band? Yeah, probably not, but that's a pretty good capsule description of Stab!, the second album by San Francisco-based "horrorbilly" act the Pine Box Boys. Lead singer Lester Raww's comically splatteriffic lyrics (the opening title track is a giddy first-person celebration of the joys of being a serial killer) are set to manic acoustic rockabilly tunes pitched somewhere between Hasil Adkins and the Bloodshot Records catalog. From the old English murder ballads to the Cramps, this sort of thing has always had a place in country and rockabilly music, and the Pine Box Boys are simply taking the idea to its logical conclusion. The humorless may well balk at the fairly explicit misogyny of tunes like "West Memphis Daddy" (with its opening line "She's outta range/I can't shoot that far"), but the songs are so EC Comics cartoonish that it's difficult to take them at all seriously. That caveat aside, Stab! is a hoot for psychobilly fans.

Customer Reviews

Bluegrass? Try Blackgrass!

What happened in their childhoods? The music is fantastic and the lyrics are very clever. The best song on the album is The Wedding Gown, but I'm partial to songs about vengence.

great album...

I was so excited to find that iTunes had both albums by one of my favorite live bands, the Pine Box Boys. While both albums are great, Stab! is by far my favorite. It captures more of the essence of seeing these guys perform live. Their sound is unique and the lyrics are bizarre at times, but every time you listen to the album, you hear something new. A great long-term addition to your music collection by a band that I hope to hear more from.


My wife and I saw them live in oct. in San Francisco--These guys are very talented and have found a niche in a big field of bluegrass. Each song on their 1st(A.K. killing time) deserves head phone attention to fully catch all the guitar and banjo work. A new CD in the spring is coming, and I can't wait. If you like well written, tight,clever,string and fiddle-told stories of murder, misery,jealousy, and et al....then you will like this band.
