S.W.A.T. - Deep Inside a Cop’s Mind: The Soundtrack For The Next Police State


(Request)

Sorry it took me so long to get this request up. I'm feeling lazy, so I'll just copy/paste the description from last.fm...

"After suffering through an ill-conceived pornography trial centered on his misanthropic zine ANSWER Me!, Jim Goad — author of The Redneck Manifesto and other counterculture tomes — moved to Portland, OR, to try and stir up trouble there.
Goad soon hooked up with fellow travelers like Feral House publisher Adam Parfrey, industrial noisemaker Boyd Rice, and Thee Slayer Hippy (aka Steve Hanford) of hardcore heroes Poison Idea. S.W.A.T. is the product of the fertile imaginations of these underground icons, and Deep Inside a Cop’s Mind is either the satirical “soundtrack to the new police state,” as stated on the front cover, or a left-handed tribute to the boys in blue. Either way, the music, a mix of honky tonk-country and roots rock, is surprisingly good. Deep Inside a Cop’s Mind opens with Ennio Morricone’s classic “The Good, the Bad & the Ugly” theme, with sampled vocals from the original Dragnet television series thrown in to set the table. With instrumental backing from most of Poison Idea (they had broken up by 1994), Parfrey leads the band through a haunting version of “The Pusher,” adding contemporary lyrics to Hoyt Axton’s anti-drug song and making more of a statement than Steppenwolf ever did. Truck-driving, road-happy country tunes like Dave Dudley’s “Coffee, Coffee, Coffee” and Red Simpson’s “Highway Patrol” are played fairly straight, changed slightly to reflect a cop’s perspective and delivered with a rockabilly fervor."
