Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Since 1992's Delusions of Banjer, Bad Livers have been sowing a great, wild hybrid of bluegrass picking and punk abandon. Six years later, Industry and Thrift shows these boys working familiar fields on scorching bluegrassers such as "I'm Goin' Back to Mom and Dad." But they're harvesting some unexpected crops this time, too: the Cali country-rock choruses of "It's All the Same to Me," for example, and a Stevie Ray Vaughan-like blues-rock version of Flatt & Scruggs's "Doin' My Time," not to mention some twangy klezmer jams and silent-movie-era jazz--all of it held together by sheer quality and the general lack of anything resembling industry or thrift. That's how the sorry characters here came to have, or be, bad livers in the first place. --David Cantwell

4.0 out of 5 stars These guys are GREAT! January 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own this disc, as well as Hogs on the Highway, and I really like them both. I thought they were pretty bizarre, and then I saw them in person. Now I listen to these discs all the time. These guys are definitely different and, instead of being defensive about it, they revel in it. Their live show is a hoot, and the discs are too.
Be prepared to be surprised if you buy this disc. There is a good chance you've never heard ANYTHING like the Bad Livers!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Bluegrass Tuba Playin' Ever Recorded August 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
If you've ever hesitated to purchase a bluegrass album for fear that all the songs will sound like "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," get yer hands on one of these old Bad Livers albums. There's a wide variety of music on each: "Industry & Thrift" features rock and klezmer along with the expected bluegrass and traditional country.

In addition to the tracks listed above, the CD provides a hidden bonus track -- but like most hidden bonus tracks, it's nothing remarkable.

My only complaint is that the CD's liner notes promote the fact that Barnes plays a Nechville banjo, but what brand of tuba does Rubin play? Looks like a Yamaha 621 to me.

I wish these guys'd get back together and make more odd recordings.
