Old 97's

There's not enough action in the music forum, so I'm a'gonna try to get some discusions started. I'm going to name a few bands I listen to and you folks can discuss them and tell me all about how my taste in music sucks. Yay!

Nope. Old 97's play Alt Country and have no horns. The Blasters, as I recall, had kind of a blues/punk/rockabilly thing going on and featured a horn section.

The Old 97's to me sound like David Byrne meeting Johnny Cash.

Jason and the Scorchers could maybe be described as country with a big dose of punk/rock attitude thrown in. Their music ranges from lonely soulful types of songs to more frenetic stuff (definitely not bland). Only tune I can remember that had any airplay was "White Lies" many years ago. Their problem is that they really couldn't get any airplay because they don't fall into a definitive music category.

Essential, Vol. 1 (Are You Ready for the Country?) is a combination of their first EP & LP with some live tracks & extras thrown in.

If you get bored here's some more info.
