iTunes Review

What began as a side-project in 1997 for the Mekons’ Jon Langford became over the next decade a virtual institution. Prodded on by the “insurgent country” Chicago-based Bloodshot Records label, Waco Brothers recorded seven studio albums before finally unleashing the live album that has been in the asking since their inception. Live, they never slow down or worry about a bum note, taking great pride in their massive attack.
