Do you sometimes feel cranky, crabby, angry or confrontational to family,

And check out this review from David Eldredge at the Illinois Entertainer:

"With a mix of socio-politico-sexual satire and guitar-driven rock not heard since The Tubes’ heyday, the crusading duo behind The Divotones continue their singular musical mission to move the listener’s feet via simultaneous attack of both ears and funny bone. While the riffs might, at times, sound a bit obvious, the slick and sure-handed production on fourth CD Magic Hat is otherwise well-suited to the material at hand and – in the case of “Hell No! That Ain’t No Sock,” a paean to groupies, which leaves nothing to the imagination – occasionally reaches for the stars." (
