Remastered and reissued, it's the debut release from Brooklyn's original disruptive alt. country legends! The Useless Bastards: "Songs you love, on instruments you hate."

Spawned from the bowels of Park Slope's Cafe Steinhof, and fueled by copious amounts of Il Bastardo wine, The Useless Bastards emerged as Brooklyn's original disruptive alt. country act. After 15 years, the wait is finally over, and the classic debut is now available—remastered and fantastic! 14 original songs from 5 multi-instrumentalists and singer-songwriters, each a successful bandleader in their own right. The Useless Bastards are:

Jonathan "Captain Ahab" Dryden - accordion, vocals J. Walter "Bullpork" Hawkes - ukelele, trombone, vocals Bryan "Park" Miller - mandolin, banjo, banjolin, vocals Christopher "Preacher Boy" Watkins - 12-string, nylon string & slide guitars, harmonica, vocals Jim "Sinnerman" Whitney - doghouse bass, vocals
