JEFFREY SCOTT HOLLAND's Countdown to Stupidity

JLK Records' Countdown to Stupidity is the first solo album from Jeffrey Scott Holland to be created and distributed by a label other than his own, Creeps Records. For years, Holland has had available solo cassettes in limited quantities (i.e. as many as he felt like dubbing); Countdown to Stupidity is his first widely available cassette.

The songs on Countdown to Stupidity serve as an introduction to the world of Jeffrey Scott Holland. His vast musical expertise is touched upon in numbers featuring musical styles ranging from the blues to folk-country to rock and roll. He pays tribute to his musical inspirations in covers of songs by Billy Childish, Bruce Springsteen, Hank Williams, R.E.M., and Freddy Fender, and continues to amuse with covers of songs by Pusm legends the Kabirs and JLK Semicolon Etcetera. He sings about many things, and many topics, but there are a number of autobiographical songs as well: His hometown of Richmond, Kentucky is featured in "Richmond Creeps;" his post-high school experiences are touched upon in "The Middle of Nowhere;" his anger against conformity and Generation X is unleashed in "You Can't Make Me."
