The inspiration for their upcoming album goes back to almost 40 years, stemming back to ’78 when Double J broadcast a psychedelic road trip from Brisbane to Sydney called ‘What’s Rangoon to you is Grafton to me’. The album is also a tribute to the the play, and author Russell Guy. In a statement, Tijuana Cartel singer, songwriter and guitarist Paul George says, “I was strangely nervous about approaching Russell to ask him to use his material." He also said, “He was this edgy, gonzo hippie from my adolescent imagination so I didn’t know quite what to expect or what approach to take.”
