Album Remarks & Appraisals:

At last, The Sadies have taken their psychedelic hot-rod-soundtrack stylings and created... a psychedelic soundtrack for a hot rod movie! Tales of the Rat Fink by Ron Mann, the award-winning director of Comic Book Confidential and Grass, chronicles the wild life of Renaissance man Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, who engineered a shift in mid-twentieth century culture with his customized cars, "monster" T-shirts and America's alternative rodent - Rat Fink. Mann's largely animated documentary features the voice talents of John Goodman, Ann-Margret, Jay Leno, Brian Wilson, Tom Wolfe, Matt Groening, Robert Williams, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Paul Le Mat, Billy Gibbons, and The Smothers Brothers.

The hardest-working, most eclectic band in Canadian show business turns its considerable talents to providing the soundtrack to a documentary film about the1960s hot-rodder and creator of the Rat Fink cartoon character, Ed "Big Daddy" Roth. These short instrumental vignettes (each interestingly named after a specific music venue--see how many you recognize) encompass surf music, Ennio Morricone knockoffs, and '60s rave-ups, all performed with the authenticity and crazy vigor of true rock & roll lifers.
