Green and Yellow is the collected recordings of legendary lost 1970s Deep South freaksters, The Stroke Band, seen and heard, until now, by only a few South Georgia pot heads, rednecks, sheriffs, strippers, and intoxicated U.S. Marines. Fronted by Bruce Joyner – a swamp rat synthesis of Buddy Holly, Bryan Ferry and Jerry Lee Lewis – The Stroke Band were an art-punk aberration to anything else happening in South Georgia in 1978-79. This Anthology Recordings re-release of the Green and Yellow album is the first in any form since the private press LP came out in 1978.
