J.J. Krupert Top 13 Countdown - June '10 #8: "It'll Shine When It Shines" by Ozark Mountain Daredevils

This may be the most loungin’ ass album ever, and this song fucking rules. For those of you who dabbled in listening to Solaris Earth Pipeline, you will recognize an unslowed down vocal sample from this song. Funny this song comes up the day after “Wildwood Flower” because it is the Ozark Mountain Daredevils’ most famous song “If You Wanna Get To Heaven” that Jesco busts out 42 of his 47 flat footing moves to in that drunken hills of West Virginia documentary. Oddly enough, being a dude who has stole every fucking album the Ozark Mountain Daredevils has ever made from inside the internet’s vast vagina wasteland of pilfered products and porn viruses, I can say without a doubt, don’t fucking bother with anything else they ever did. You can get that one “If You Wanna Get To Heaven” song if you’re some sort of ironic retro PBR fuckface who needs a psych-up song to look in the mirror to while you get ready to go hang out at a co-worker’s instrumental metal for college graduates who own their own fringe construction-oriented specialty companies band’s show later tonight. But if you’re a real dude who lives in a rural place who likes to fight chickens and watch junk cars rust and fuck the ol’ lady on the picnic table under a new moon, then this song is the title song off the only album you’ll ever need, really, for the rest of your life. I’d say in a perfect world you could buy it on tape off ebay and then play it on a boombox with like 12 D batteries until they start to slow down and it warbles to about the speed that sounds right, but maybe not, so you take out the batteries and put them back in in a different order and that makes it play right for another four minutes.
