The Allisons - The Allisons - 1989

Once upon a time, or maybe twice, there was an unearthly place. 80,000 leagues beneath an ocean of chemical refinery effluence it lay...or lie...I'm not too sure. Blahtown. A tickle of complacency on the beer belly of the universe. A place where guilelessness reigned supreme under the shadow of an oversized shopping mall. But all that was threatened when the '80s economic recession declared war and sent in an army led by urban cowboys and MTV to destroy the vapidity that blissfully existed. Enter The Allisons to save the day! Four score and 12 bars ago....armed with little more than their lunch, songs, and of course, their Rickenbackers, The Allisons tackled the anti-music missile armed troops in an effort to bring down the evil forces of boredom. For a while, it was a great party. -The Allisons
