Crying Those Cocksucking Tears: Lavender Country – Deep Gay Twang from Back in the Day

No video on this one, but a great audio clip. Crying Those Cocksucking Tears. Deep twang from Lavender Country from back in the heady post-Stonewall days of early gay lib.  Based in Seattle, Lavender Country was founded by Patrick Haggerty and also included Michael Carr on keyboards, Eve Morris on fiddle and vocals, and token heterosexual guitarist Robert Hammerstrom. Their self-titled album was released in 1973.
