God, Forgive these Bastards is a jazz punk album by The Taxpayers. It is also the name of the book that inspired the album, Taxpayer vocalist Rob Morton's experimental novel about a life filled with contradictions—cowardice and bravery, falsehoods and candidness, glory and failure. The story is told from the perspective of Henry Turner, and spans his trajectory from local hero and star pitcher of the Georgia Tech Wildcats to an abusive, alcoholic drifter. After spending his later years in homeless encampments and psych wards, Turner turned his demons to his advantage and became a kind, beloved street story-teller, a friend of the down-and-out, and a public transit angel. God, Forgive These Bastards explores the brief moments that can shape our lives and the power of forgiving even the most wretched actions with compassion and understanding.

This package includes a book + vinyl LP together in a slipcover.
