    Album Info & Lyrics

    From this album, the song "Driving In England" reached #1 on the Rock Airplay Chart, Terry's first and only #1 song since DA released "Shotgun Angel".
    There were some Christian colleges that were actually upset that they weren't mentioned in "Hide the Beer, The Pastor's Here".

    ("Hide the Beer" ad, designed by Doug TenNapel)

    Terry: "We come from Southern California... ya know one of the early Beach Boys hits was "Surfin USA"... they named places like Dohini and a lot of other surfing spots, so the whole idea there was in doing so a lot of people got excited when their town or the place they surfed came up. So, the idea of adding the Christian Colleges in the song was an afterthought, and it was sort of the Beach Boys thing of throwing these Christian Colleges out. Some Interesting things happened with that,,, we had a dean call us and threaten to take us to court and he was gonna call all the other deans and that sort of thing. But that was before he heard the song. He had just heard the title of the song and it kind of put him off. But he cooled off after we sent him a copy and he understood the meaning of the song and that it wasn't a slam against Christian Colleges. It was kind of a fun thing - as a matter of fact, that's the kind of comments we've gotten from College Students, ya know, 'we wait to hear our College mentioned' and some were very offended because their College wasn't in the list." (June 1990)

    Terry (on the song "Billy Graham"): "I think with all of the things that have been happening, obviously in Fundamentalist Evangelical circles, it's sort of refreshing to see someone that continues to have integrity, a simple message and seems to be an honest person and that's just our little salute to Billy Graham. I'm sure there are hundreds of others that we could have been singing about, but we felt that to be an intriguing kind of approach to a song... something about a man who has been doing it all these years, and the press is constantly trying to turn up something on the guy and invalidate what he does and yet he still seems to be one of the honest people, sincere and he has an impact."
