A country rock band from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. They specialise in playing country versions of rock songs with the words slightly altered ("Middle Aged Dirtbag" is based on the song "Teenage Dirtbag"). While this may sound lame, it works really well as one of their best songs is a version of a Nirvana tune Lithium.

I have their CD and EP that I bought from them at one of their gigs but they are really a band who are at their best when playing live. The most recent time I saw them was at the Greyhound Hotel playing with Shonkytonk.
