I can't really tell if they are sincere in their racism/sexism/misanthropy, and I think that's what makes this band a particularly uneasy listen. Make no mistake about it, these guys lay down some ... fine tunes, conjured up at the crossroads of indie-rock and country/western. Still, I can't help but wonder where they're coming from when they say things like, "I am the perfect image of mankind/ my back is straight like a straight, white line..." or "I like the swastika/I also like the jew/I like the negro/and the kkk too...". the ambiguity of these sentiments is perhaps what gives the Country Teasers their peculiar charm.
