The infamous self-titled debut of Michael Knott's Aunt Bettys. Edgy new wave/post-punk and alternative pop.
Two of the most problematic areas for people with this record were the remake of Michael Knott's song "Rocket and a Bomb" and some of the artwork. At the end of the song there was a chorus of profanity. Mike apologized, admitting this was wrong, and should not have been included, as it was, for shock value. Mike hopes that others can forgive him and learn from his mistakes. The artwork, however, is another matter. Each painting represents something important Mike wanted to illustrate. One of the paintings is Christ as a bartender, standing over a guy that has passed out. He's holding a bottle of red wine to symbolize His love inspired and life-giving blood. Mike explains that this painting is "to represent that Christ is there even in this guy's darkest hour. Christ is there, ready to give him life and that's it. I mean, He's there."
