***SPIDER BAGS are a rock 'n' roll band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, consisting of DAN MCGEE (guitar/vocals, formerly of the late great punk outfit DC SNIPERS), STEVE OLIVA (bass), ROCK FORBES (drums), and New Jersey mainstay/satellite member GREGG LEVY (not featured on these recordings). Their music is an ode to the strange, subtly sad landscape that is America, painted with blurry vision yet fang-sharp Southern wit, like some Barry Hannah bedroom blues band, and framed decoratively within the glow of each song. While the band straight-up hammers through the title-track (a minute-long ripper, co-written by MATT HOOPENGARDNER of THE GOLDEN BOYS) with an unhinged "Fuck you, Dad" demeanor, they aren't afraid to slow it down a little on the flip. "I Wish That I Never Had Fed You" features the addition of NATHAN GOLUB on pedal steel, softening the slap of the A-side, letting the tattered heart flag fly as it has over so many songs of cowboy abandon, entering "alt-country" territory without ever allowing itself to be pinned down as such. Edition of 300 copies on translucent purple wax.
