The Apple-Bottom Gang likes robbing trains. They’re really good at it. When they’re not doing that, they’re sitting around playing old country songs. Songs by fellers named Buck and Hank and Ernest and Lefty and Johnny (both Cash and Horton). This is a big gang with a big sound. It’s a very-table hillbilly orchestra!
I.R. sings and plans the heists. Stinky Fingers plays the guitar and ...blows stuff up. Shotgun Susie sings and claps and takes care of the get-away ponies. Fancy Jeffro blows the harp and is quick on the draw. Sweet D hits and scratches on stuff and cons the fellas. Staggerin’ Lee picks the mandolin and is a crack rifle shot. Steamboat Bill thumps the bass and punches the fellers. Cooter Houston bangs the drums and is the brains of the gang.
Hillbilly, honky-tonk, country and western music, both covered and original, played with a wink and a smile... That there’s The Apple-Bottom Gang!
And away they go... The 4:20 out of Albuquerque is due by any minute.
