Pocket Fishrmen- Greatest Story Ever Told LP. Pocket Fishrmen are from Austin and disbanded in 2000 following a colorful 14-year run. How colorful? The band’s 1988 debut 45 was entitled “Amy Carter” a song written about Jimmy Carter’s daughter which put the Pocket Fishermen on the Secret Service’s radar back in the late 80’s. Over the years they’ve penned such sensitive, satircal numbers like “Go Go Saddam Hussein,” “One Blowjob, One Handjob, One Vagina,” “Pot Mountain,” “Priapus Power,” “Flaccid is the Night,” and “Gay Jew Conquistador”, not to mention many songs about your dick. Yeah, the pre-millennial era was a different time and a different place in terms of how we viewed satire, provocation and political correctness within the punk rock world. ‘The Greatest Story Ever Told’ is a career overview re-viewed via re-recordings of classic fan and band faves. It may or may not be strictly for longtime devotees, but I must admit that if I were 16 or 17 and I came across this album on Spotify, I’d definitely blast the shit out of it from my upstairs bedroom and dare my parents to come in and ask if I’m finished with my homework. Fans of provocative, boundary pushing punk bands like the Meatmen, the Mentors, Sloppy Seconds, the Queers, and the Dickies will dig this record. Nice looking GATEDFOLD COVERS on these with liner notes by singer Briant Bingamon. And on top of the vinyl version the LP also includes a bonus CD including 16 extra re-recorded classics from the bands extensive back catalog totaling 30 tracks in all. A nice revisited retrospective here.
