I'll admit that I was never that big of a Lazy Cowgirls fan; I saw them once, at the Anthrax around '88 or so, and owned a copy of "Radio Cowgirl" for maybe a month or two, but that was about it. Actually, the thing I remember most about seeing the Lazy Cowgirls was the opening band on the bill, a crappy all-girl band from Rochester called The Slutkillers or something that had an LP out called "...Hence The Name". From there on out, we started saying "hence the name" to mean that something really sucked. "Man, that 'Late For The Grave' LP is terrible." "Hence the name." "The new issue of MRR is shit." "Hence the name." Well, it seemed funny at the time...
The a-side to this single is a slower Stones-ish type number (hence the name!), but the b-side is a cool all-out blast, just the way God intended, and we can all be thankful for that.
