David Dondero/Mischief Brew "Two Boxcars" Split

I know I'm behind in the times and David Dondero has released A Pre-existing Condition and whatever but I recently came across this amazing split and can't stop listening to it. Seeing one of the two names on this should be enough to send you to your local internet search engine. It starts out with a man and his daughter's lifeless corpse in an ice cooler going to the Brownsville Assembly in search of false hope in Dondero's "The Brownsville Revival", a slightly varied version from the "South Of The South" one with some added piano thing tracks or whatever.  Erik Petersen (Mischief Brew)'s two begin with a tired alternative to traditional bullshit folk-punk songs in which he emphasizes his hatred for these anti-war anthems. The second, "Goodbye Under God", is a response to the dated controversy of the "under god" line in the pledge. Don't get me wrong, I fucking love David Dondero and you should definitely go out and buy his shit but I just think that this is the best thing I've heard from Mischief Brew yet.
