Fishing for fishies
Don’t make them feel happy
Or me neither
I feel so sorry for fishies

Three different songs contain the word ‘boogie’ in this track list, which probably tells you most of what you need to know going in to this Roots-Rock camping album. Very underrated in the discography, this anachronistic gem begs the listener to not take the music so seriously, and likely won’t be enjoyed if you aren’t willing to have fun listening to it. This carefree sound is offset by genuine, stark concern for the environment and mental well being in the lyrics.

The strong environmental anti-consumerism theme deserves credit for spurring the realisation of hypocrisy in producing so much waste as a by product of the vinyl record industry. Every record since this album is packaged in recycled materials, and usually available on recycled vinyl as well.

What to listen to next:

If you want something else fun/not serious sounding
If you want another bright sounding album with dark lyrics
If you want another easy-going album that gets weird
If you want another album that sounds like a past era
If you want another environmentalism themed album but more apocalyptic
If you didn’t like this and want to get into what the band is better known for
