about

Dillinger inspired, Wichita grown--and it took a village to sound just right. So we got a mob. Guest vocals include: Scotty Edwards (Gringo Sapiens/The Joycoughs), Mat Splat (The Death Scene/The Terminals), Danny Echo (Old Man Creaky Bones/Iron Octomoms) & Johnny Chucho (The Ghost Town Strays/Sin Lengue).

lyrics

Asphalt Prairie [Now all we Need are Gangstas on Poegies]

Asphalt Prairie!
Asphalt Prairie!
Bang! Bang!
Wichita, yes we livin’ on a asphalt prairie.

Teeth are gonna fly, I’m talking wild, wild West shit
Doctors gunned down in church, you better wear a vest if
you intend to help a woman choose then you could get arrested
or worse: ‘cause if you ain’t Christian, expect to be detested!
A Kansan is to English as a child is to spinach:
The barbarians I live with still pronounce the dub in ‘Greenwich’
The meek walk the street while the rich roll heavy
What you know about the meter in your soul tickling E for empty in

Wichita, yes we livin’ on a asphalt prairie (Asphalt Prairie!)
Wichita, yes we livin’ on a asphalt prairie (Asphalt Prairie!)
Got more guns than a you could conceal and carry (Bang! Bang!)
Wichita, yes we livin’ on a asphalt prairie (Asphalt Prairie!)

Wild-catter oil barons, armed security guard mansions
The poor an easy score, so they holdin’ them for ransom
Multinational airplane companies get tax cuts and subsidies
while secret Illuminati conspiracies, brew beneath the Keeper’s feet!
Keep the money downtown, preserve the natural habitat
Can’t control the floods, but the river got a bike path
Home of the Keystone ecocidal vision
but they already got a pipeline from the schools to the prisons in
