THE KNOXVILLE GIRLS
Finally seeing the light of day here we have an unreleased album recorded in NYC in 1999 by this super band:
- Jerry Teel – vocals, guitar (The Chrome Cranks, Honeymoon Killers, Boss Hog, Big City Stompers…)
- Kid Congo Powers – vocals, guitar (The Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Butcher Shop…)
- Jack Martin – guitar (Five Dollar Priest…)
- Barry London – organ, piano, harp
- Bob Bert – drums (The Chrome Cranks, Five Dollar Priest, Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Lydia Lunch…)
Recorded at legendary NY studio Funhouse, these recoordings have remained unheard so far (except for the Tom Waits cover) and some of the tracks were afterwards rerecorded for their last álbum.
But here we have the original álbum as it was concived with their impolute swamp, country, blues, New York sound.
An absolute must for fans of The Gun Club, The Beasts of Bourbon, etc.
Limited edition of 500 copies.
