Goober & The Peas were a cowpunk band from Detroit, Michigan, known for blending odd humor to a darker side of country music and indie rock (and for Jack White of The White Stripes having served as drummer for a period). The band was known for their frenetic live shows in the early and mid-1990s. The Austin Chronicle called them "some seriously sick individuals, and quite possibly the most exciting live act in America" after their performance at South by Southwest in 1993.
The debut recording of Goober & the Peas is in many ways a recreation of the experience of seeing the group live. The songs sound the same as they do live - with all the energy and without any additional instrumentation, and not to mention the continual banter between Goober and Junior. This is cowboy surf music at its finest - with a dark side. Songs generally riff on traditional country music themes and take on a sinister edge. Up the Stairs" sings the song of a stalker and "Don't Be Afraid" tells the story of alcohol-induced domestic violence.
