It's 3 a.m., on some date in 1975, the white line is wavering in front of your amphetamine bleached eyes, your rig is barreling through the high plains north of nowhere and you won't see your woman for three more days, what 8-track do you need to get you through the night? Why, Country Porn, of course.
Linked page is mostly safe for work, but NSFW audio files, and some text

Why is this notable? Chinga Chavin only released this one record, and it was released on Penthouse Records (NSFW), no less. Raunchy trucker country from when country wasn't necessarily pretty.

I would think it would be notable for being a) country b) porn c) on 8 track.

Who is Chinga Chavin?

"asshole from el paso" is a Kinky Friedman song, this guy is not doing it justice.
/not a country fan, just a Kinky fan

If you like this, you might want to try some of David Allen Coe's early stuff.

Chinga wrote it for Kinky, Grod. *
Now that's an odd sentence...

Ugh, who can listen to porn when they know President Ford is answering the red phone?!

This is a pretty entertaining movie about a guy from Indiana named Larry Pierce who has been doing humorous, filthy country music for decades. It premiered in the Twin Cities last year and Larry and his wife showed up and aw-shucksed their way through the crowd adulation.

1f2frfbf my mistake. I still don't think he sings it as well, though.

I was country when country wasn't cool. But it was dirty as hell.

Country has never been cool. Popular, yes. Cool, no.

DU: Are you saying Johnny Cash was not cool? That's a thumpin'.

Oh man, this is fantastic, thank you for this post 1f2frfbf!

When I was in junior high, my friend discovered this album in his dad's "back of the closet" stash. Being the only one at the time with a stereo system at home that had tape-dubbing capabilities, it became my job to make copy after copy of this tape (without being caught by my parents) so all of the guys in our group could have their own copy of this filthy, funny album. I hadn't thought of this in years, thanks for making my afternoon a zillion percent cooler.

They might want to add last nights TRAINWRECK COUNTRY VERSION of The Beatles "8 Days a Week" on American Idol to that porn-y playlist. I'm sure it turned somebody..somewhere...on.

Tell that to the legion of greasy hipsters who started claiming Johnny Cash was the greatest musician to ever live around 2003 (and have never heard any of his records outside of Live at Folsom and the American series, and would probably deny he recorded gospel albums).

Anyway, I always thought that "Cumstains" song WAS by David Allen Coe. And if you go looking for his early stuff, watch out, some of it is disgustingly racist. Old DAC albums on CD are sold by Nazi hate-rock sites.

Johnny Cash: old and tired. Hank Williams I: new hotness.

Oh, Jesus. Are you serious? Tell me they haven't latched on to Patsy Cline too.

Lord knows I love Johnny Cash, and have since childhood...but he did, indeed, have his uncool moments.

Somewhere, I think. But it gets worse: some kids I know have a Leadbelly cover band.

Don't worry, I'm guessing Wilma Lee and Stoney are still safe. Or you could just stop hanging out with hipsters.

Cover Leadbelly? How, why, what? Please tell me they are a ska/acid jazz/ reggae/punk/alt-country act. Which would make them a skacidazzggaeunktry band I'm guessing.

That is so incredibly uncool it goes right back around to totally awesome. This really existed? It's like something out of Futurama or something. "Johnnycash" ATM machines. Now I've seen everything.

I met Chinga at a Kinky Friedman signing. he signed my jacket. Nice guy.

what, no rodeo song? - SO nsfw - this was insanely popular - they even played it on the radio with all the bad words bleeped out

DecemberBoy, I think Patsy Cline is safe for now, but Loretta Lynn should keep an eye out for ironic trucker hats.
