Rural punk is in gumboots. It is an attack of noise over the silent hills beyond the black stump. Rural punk is having no neighbours but the ones that are there have guns. Rural punks is revolution in the vege patch. We call a spade a spade and make good use of one. Rural punks is a fuck off to the cosmopolitan pretensions of “punk”, workshops are just sheds if we feel inclined to do a bit of light carpentry. Rural punk is a fuck off to wankers who live in big cities but call themselves country punk because they have a washboard and an accordian and do country music crossover shit. Rural punks is distortion to the hills of nothingness. Rural punk is epic metal on the magic mushrooms. Rural punks is a farmyard boogie. Rural punk is endless homebrew.
