Rough Trade Shops: Country 01
2 CDs, Mute Records A long time ago I saw a TV program recorded in Germany called something like Alternative Nashville. Up to that time I hadn't liked country at all, thinking it maudlin, silly, and a too often told bad joke. That program alerted me to the fact that there was a whole nother Country world out there and that it could be vibrant, funny, and rock along real good (I'm getting in the swing here). This sampler is from that alternate world and it is all the things I just said. People on it include The Gourds, X (wow! still around), The Broken Family Bands, Gun Club, Meat Puppets, and Carla Bozulich (with Willie Nelson) which is getting towards the Cowboy Junkies (who aren't here). And not to forget the very cool Rainer and Das Combo. Yeeehaaar (thunderfinger)
