"This Band Follows The 'K.I.S.S.' Rule!!!! Its good to see someone have the courage to follow the K.I.S.S rule (keep it simple stupid). The simplicity of the song gives it a charming, refreshing feel. Great mood, and lyrics. This song was short sweet, and to the point. I think more bands ought to look into this form of writing instead of complicating songs with modern-day contrivances. Good work." Honeypickle - Beeton, Ontario, Canada
"Primus in a car crash with Johnny Cash. Details at 10. Country Primus. Strange indeed. An all right song." DrLoveGun - Omaha, Nebraska

Johnny Fulsome is an attempt at writing a Johnny Cash style song in an Elvis in Vegas manner. That got through I guess.
As for the other guys I didn't think of them at all, and had never heard of Stompin' Tom, but those are ok comparisons by me.
Johnny Fulsome was written as a tribute to a Johnny Cash song.
