Backwoods Payback

Backwoods Payback! The name conjures images of some kind of Deliverance style, hillbilly redneck revenge killing…all plaid shirts, mountains of empty beer cans, fulsome beards and hefty bellies with shotguns across their laps!!! In truth…well, musically this doesn’t sound that far from the truth…
