"Big Delusion Factory" is the sixth full-length album by the Taxpayers, the goofpunx champs of Portland and New Orleans (and a few places in between)! The album tells the story of a woman who tells everyone to call her Linda (even though that's not her name). It follows her increasing volatility and frustration with the rapid changes happening in the city around her after a natural disaster.
This is their most anthemic and cohesive album yet, we think. It feels like something the Taxpayers have been working up to for a long time. It’s got horns, it’s got piano ballads, it’s got bizarro hardcore punk freakouts, it’s got the shoutalong catchiness of 2010’s "To Risk So Much for One Damn Meal" and the frenzied jazzy punk of their more recent albums "God, Forgive" and "Cold Hearted Town"—and there’s so much more to it that it’s probably best to let this one speak for itself. This is one to sit down and think about. It might be one you carry with you for a long time.
This is a run of 500 LPs--340 black, 160 Translucent Blue
