Editorial Reviews

Like a surreal Norman Rockwell painting come to life, Antsy McClain is the embodiment of the small-town, blue-collar life he experienced growing up in a little Kentucky trailer park called Pine View Heights and reared by a truck driving father and an Avon selling mother. Trailercana features guest appearances from Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, Bobby Cochran of Steppenwolf, Tommy Smothers, and Bonnie Bramlett. A glimpse of song titles from Trailercana offers a tantalizing look into McClains wry blend of humor and emotional depth. He serves up an ode to pseudo-celebrity in Ron Howards Brother and revels in the irony of I Was Just Flipped Off By A Silver Haired Old Lady. Mix in songs like Cubic Zerconium In The Rough, Joan of Arkansas, KOA Refugee and Prozac Made Me Stay, and its obvious that McClain has a slightly skewered view of life in the U.S. of A. He infused the album with the rootsy, muscular blend of rock and roll that has become his trademark. Wildly independent and fiercely creative, Antsy McClain is staking his claim on pop culture. His plot may not be huge, but hes mining it deep, uncovering little musical gems for Trailercana.

When the lyrics are woven in with the music it is a delight.
Sumoflam
If you can't make it to a concert, buy the Trailercana music, or any of the music by them and listen... you will enjoy.
Mac Maverick
The lyrics range from heart-felt sincerity to extremely clever satire.

The Kentucky bred McClain has made a career out of this trailer-park upbringing, blending clever humor and wry social observations with enticing country soul music. There's a hint of Rodney Crowell's wordiness in these sixteen tracks that combines nicely with a touch of Kinky Friedman's irreverence. McClain's satire can be both whimsical and poignant, which might suggest country antecedents like Sheb Wooley or Cledus T. Judd, but he's more of a humorous musician than a musical humorist, clever like Ben Vaughn and Barnaked ladies, with a fine voice filled with the sly good times of Charlie Robison and Jimmy Buffett.

The rocking opener "Living in Aluminum" states McClain's case for contentment without resorting to materialism, "I don't need a house of vinyl / I don't need a house of wood / There ain't no better way to test your mettle / Than in a semi-precious metal neighborhood." McClain expands on personal responsibility in "The Devil Gets More Credit Than He Deserves" (with guest Lindsey Buckingham providing electric guitar) and considers religious hypocrisy in the true-life folk-gospel "I Was Just Flipped Off by a Silver Haired Old Lady With a 'Honk If You Love Jesus' Sticker on the Bumper of Her Car."

McClain sings of escaping into the perfect world of a billboard, the dire consequences of PMS, and the torment of a post-breakup stay at KOA. His sedated "Prozac Made Me Stay" features a guest appearance from Tommy Smothers, and "Full Moon in Pine View Heights" recalls characters from his childhood, including a date who "had eyebrows plucked thinner than a razor's edge / She smelled like popcorn, Quaker State and Lemon Pledge.

Where Antsy McClain comes from, a seven-course dinner means road kill and a six pack.

There are two traditional responses to that background: fight or flight.

Antsy found a third: humor. That is, cheerful acceptance of everything that a man who was ashamed of his roots would ordinarily deny. So it's no accident that this CD begins with a song called "Living in Aluminum", which starts something like this:

There's a lot to be said about contentment.

Some folks never get enough.

Let me ask you honey, which is better?

A mansion full of money,

or a trailer full of love?

There's a lot to be said about acceptance,

liking who you are and having peace of mind.

The secret's being happy with your lot in life, baby,

And I'm pretty happy here in lot number nine.

"Trailercana" is a tour of that hardscrabble Southern life and the people Antsy cherishes.

Like Mary Anne Myers, who "put the funk in DysFUNKtional" and is just the woman you want to be around when she forgets she's mentally unstable:

Some folks say what we're doing ain't right.

Some might say it's just exploitation.

But there's a party at her house tonight,

And she hasn't been taking her medication.

It's gonna be good.

Nobody's gorgeous in Ansty-world:

He had a face you can't remember

Even when he'd hang around.

And there's unexpected ugliness to boot --- as this song title attests:

I was just flipped off

by a silver haired old lady,

with a "Honk If You Love Jesus" sticker

on the bumper of her car.

But getting caught up in that? Why, it would be petty.

This is a CD for adults that are tired of the product being pushed by the Starmaking Machinery. Antsy McClain's music blends the twangy roots rock of Chris Isaak with the wry, observational humor of Lyle Lovett and John Prine, and adds a dash of the good-natured party mind-set of Jimmy Buffett. This description may only begin to give you a clue as to the clever songwriting and sly, understated performance that await you on this CD. Like the best humorists, McClain understands that it's funnier when you don't laugh at your own jokes. Like the previous reviewer, this CD has been living in my player for the past few weeks. It's a gem that is too good for commercial radio - they wouldn't know where to program him. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a copy today!

This is some of the best new songwriting I have heard! It's hilarious and very clever. Great grooves to the music and good mix of fast, slow, funny and serious. It's living in my cd player.

As a former trailer inhabitant myself, I was quite curious to see how Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours' latest album, Trailercana, would move me. While I was not immediately turned off as Antsy and his band of rockabilly misfits cranked out twangy opener "Living in Aluminum" and other saloony sing-alongs, Trailercana isn't an album I'd listen to more than once.

Not to say Antsy and the Trailer Park Troubadours don't do what they do well. Fans should be more than pleased with the band's latest backyard barbeque effort. I'm just not a fan of the genre - kind of Dire Straits meets Jimmy Buffet in a back-country bar. However, I'm highly appreciative of musicians with an authentic sound and sense of humor, and in that regard, Trailercana will resonate, given the right audience.

With track titles like "KOA Refugee," "Ron Howard's Brother," and my personal favorite, "I Was Just Flipped Off by a Silver Haired Old Lady With a `Honk If You Love Jesus' Sticker on the Bumper of Her Car," Trailercana delivers melodic comical narratives with a genuine fondness for the trashiness of trailer park living - true Americana - with guitar slides and harmonies to boot.

And while I cringe at the thought of joining the Troubadours' cult of fanatics (dubbed `flamingo heads'), I'm still a sucker for a well-groomed man in wingtips and black-framed glasses. If you are one to indulge your curiosities, Trailercana might just be worth a listen.
