This is the band featuring Marla Vee and Thee Whiskey Rebel of obnoxio-punkers Rancid Vat. Marla & Thee Reb are husband & wife and they also have their son Elvis 2000 playing drums. It's a "family values" record for the drunk and demented.

Alcoholics Unanimous – 20 Years of Tanked Up Tunes
Reviewed by Sadie O., 1/5/07
Punk Rockabilly with some glam and a bit of metal – all songs about booze. Sounds pretty much what you’d imagine a band called Alcoholics Unanimous to sound like, really. Mostly pretty messy!
FCCs on 1, 3, 6, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20. Best tracks 9,17,24 (although 24 may not play.)
1. 2:18 FCC: “fuck”, “fucking” **bass-heavy stomp, unison vocals, quite evocative of the feeling, although the guitar solo may be rather too functional…
2. 2:36 **uptempo bopper hoarse vocals, fun.
3. 2:17 FCC: “shit” spoken at very end **swingy midtempo sashay.
4. 2:09 **rock version of C&W classic.
5. 2:33 **lop-assed midtempo rocker with singing apparently through a bullhorn. Decent little rockabilly guitar solo.
6. 2:09 FCC: “goddamn” “bitch” ***uptempo glam version of another C&W classic – can’t go wrong with a Merle Haggard song.
7. 1:33 **vocal intro, uptempo bopper, a bit swingy, fairly obnoxious vocal delivery.
8. 2:41 ***uptempo garage punk, adenoidal vocals, admirable sentiment.
9. 1:55 ****fine riff, glam/punk, screaming. Fine, but too short… Nasty burp at very end.
10. 2:10 **midtempo punky bopper.
11. 2:28 ***disorderly intro, totally off-kilter, but now with horns!
12. 2:48 ****wah wah, uptempo drunken funk, funny lyrics. I laughed, anyway. Absolutely hideous sax screeching.
13. 3:52 **slow and fuzzy stroll. Instrumental with more ghastly sax.
14. 2:33 FCC: “fuck” **midtempo messy punk, vocals sound they’re from a bad live mix.
15. 3:16 FCC: “fucking” **slow heavy metal guitar intro, then midtempo punk with a bit of quasi folk-metal chorus, mostly unintelligible.
16. 1:47 FCC: lots of “fuck” *uptempo punk novelty number – kinda Dickies-like.
17. 2:57 ****rather pretty electronics or guitar or something, midtempo glam rocker with a bit of echo on the vocals. More musically sophisticated than most tracks. I mean, vocal harmonies! Gosh!
18. 2:06 **uptempo punk rockabilly stomp with unintelligible vocals. I suspect FCCs, but I really can’t tell.
19. 3:43 FCC: entire concept of song, “fuckin” “shitting” *feedback and bass intro, midtempo messy glam punk. Some truly terrible noises…
20. 4:47 FCC: “fucker” a few times, it sounds like ***drunken minimalist remake of Kansas City. Rather lovable, like a dead puppy. Pretty much falls to pieces by mid-song.
21. 3:14 ***bass and guitar, quasi arty-jazzy, spoken word, eventually a sort of anthemic march, then very fast punk metal cover of C&W classic.
22. 2:27 **count-off intro, uptempo messy punk rockabilly cover of the classic.
23. 2:07 ***fast punk rockabilly bopper, swingy and fun. Either the song or the CD or my player gets real glitchy mid-song.
24. 3:56 ****Dixie on guitar intro, then midtempo bopper, cover of the Carl Perkins classic, completely raw, great. Mouth harp! (My player wouldn’t play the whole thing – I think the CD is damaged)
