about

JC Autobody Petroleum, Indiana

Channeling Deep Purple (if they grew up on punk 7”s and DIY ethics), Dirtbombs (if they grew up on a steady diet of LA death rock) and grindhouse film (if Russ Meyer had grown up in Harmony Korine’s Xenia, OH), JC Autobody combines the rawness of lo-fi punk with the nihilism of swamp blues, drenched in the gratuitous noise of the loudest amps on earth. ... more

Track Name: Lifetaker
my night is day yeah
moon on the dashboard baby
i am Lifetaker
rollin on the ghost'd highway
come from the river
up from the muddy banks yeah
down from the mountain
i'm on the road to prey for pay

i am an angel
born in a burnin building
i am a vandal
goin on a mercy killing
in my el camino
seats smell like gasoline
i drink carbolic acid and i'm
still looking for my killer queen

i've got a stigma
like tetanus and rabies
a lone enigma
i've had 400 birthday
i'm a dark premonition
that you will have before waking

there's no tomorrow...

i'm on the road to prey for pay
Track Name: Silver Teeth
She got a mouth full of silver teeth
And she flies into a rage when starts to speak
She got one eye lookin' the other way
She got me tied up tight to a propane tank
And the all neighbors think she's really sweet
But i'm only alive because she allows me to be

She's a killer queen
With a menthol palate
Chasin' 5 course dinners with a shotgun salad
She puts 300 lbs up and over her head
And keeps a pink Smith & Wesson hidden under the the bed
Her mouth tastes like she shoots gasoline
And when we kiss i leave blood on her silver teeth

She's my girlfriend yeah yeah
Track Name: Eagle Ray
medicine man
a truck stop shaman
fought in vietnam
coffee on his pants
he dont' give a damn
scar on his face
he's haulin the freight
got his hair in a braid
goin to drive and be up late
outrun the DOT
cause they can't catch what they can't see
freightliner drivin cherokee

his wheels are on fire...

a killer man
drivin a sedan
took a woman
he grabbed her by the hand
he tried to tie her down
in a ghost town
got blood on her gown
so she bit him on the mouth
and he fell to the ground
blood on her face
she ran like a race
down the highway
then came Eagle Ray
he came his truck
he stopped with a shrug
picked the woman up
she held on to his glove
and when the dust had cleared
Eagle Ray had disappeared

Eagle Ray, he gon' keep the highway safe
with the moonlight on his face and one foot on the break
