Kinky Friedman & The Texas Jewboys burst onto the outlaw music scene in 1973. They were irreverent, politically incorrect and in your face. Kinky's songs were witty, sarcastic, shocking and cutting edge; surprisingly, that remains true today. Mayhem Aforethought is the only album ever recorded that presents a complete show with the original Kinky Friedman & The Texas Jewboys band members. The uncensored interplay between Kinky and the Jewboys during the show is as entertaining (or more so) as the songs themselves.

If you want to know what it was like to have been there, or just enjoy this groundbreaking music from a magical time in history, it doesn't get any better than this. If you are from Texas, or have any connection to the State, this is essential. I can't begin to cover all the various angles and perspectives represented by the music and its commentary on contemporary early-70's society; it goes well beyond knee-slapping laughter and comic entertainment. It's that, plus heavy at the same time. Well, nothing more I can say except "5 Stars" in my book...this one and "Sold American". And to top it all, Kinky appears likely to be the next Governor of Texas in 2006. I think there's hope for the World. "Thank ya very much!" "You're welcome Kinky"
