But what the Hell. It's Philadelphia somewhere.
Here's some info Risa from JHC sent me. I normally hate press release stuff, but I liked this.
"Alcoholics In My Town" is Jesus H Christ and The Four Hornsmen of The Apocalypse’s take on an ode to small town life, crossed with a great American drinking song that actually calls out the alcoholism looming under both genres.
“Let’s party like we’ll never get old,” the message seems to be, “And then let’s run our van into a guardrail on the way home and become paralyzed from the waist down and not have health insurance.”
The band wanted to write a song that celebrated small town life, in the vein of John Cougar Mellencamp and Bruce Springsteen: songs about the people they grew up with: the good times and the good buddies.
But, growing up in small towns, they knew, from personal experience, that most of these Good-Time-Charlies-and-Charlenes were usually alcoholics. The band doesn’t condemn, or exclude themselves, from this state of affairs- they just wanted to be medically accurate.
