"Grandpa’s Ghost ground their hypnotic country rock deeper into psychedelia than anyone short of Neil Young & Crazy Horse" - Joe Carducci

"Country of Piss" is the companion piece to Grandpa's Ghost's sprawling 2LP set "The Carnage Queen". Culled from the same sessions, the album features the ethereal, psychedelic "Once Before I Die" and "When Hands Turn to Claws", the cyclical, epic title track and radical deconstructions of Judas Priest's "Electric Eye" and Neil Young's "Looking for a Love".
