Painted Willie - My Fellow Americans ep (1984, Spinhead)

This is one of the scarcer Painted Willie recordings out there, which by the way didn't come out on SST Records.  Typically a fun, artsy punk band, the band's muse waxed a more serious tenor on My Fellow Americans, a concept piece inspired by Cold War tensions.  No liner notes accompanied the record per se, but the Painted Willie website linked above offers a great deal of insight regarding the provocative themes discussed within.  Definitely not as freewheeling as their "Ragged Army" 7" that I shared a few years ago, though it does feature one of my favorite PW tracks, the atypically weary "Crossed Fingers."  The Willie's first album, Mind Bowling was re-released on CD in 2009.  Enjoy (or not).
