ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY/HALFWAY TO GONE - SPLIT (2000)
Here's a split release from everyone's favorite sons of the south, ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY, paired with New Jersey (and SOLARIZED) expatriates HALFWAY TO GONE. As splits go, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more likely tandem. Aside from both sides kicking ass to the Nth degree, this split is also notable for being H2G's debut. "Thee Song" might actually be the highlight of the record, though it's hard to overlook the mighty ATP's two contributions. I enjoy the more recent Kyle Thomas ATP stuff, but these tracks are a trip down memory lane...back to the Johnny Thockmorton-fronted Man's Ruin days. Four fantastic shots of the absolute top shelf of whiskey rock.
1. ATP - Heavyweight
2. ATP - Rabdos (The Strangler)
3. H2G - Darktown Strutter
4. H2G - Thee Song
