THE PRESS RELEASE: “Just in time for primary season, Waco Brothers are releasing a collection of their songs about resistance and protest on Feb. 28, entitled Resist! The Chicago-based/UK-born country punks have been politically outspoken throughout their career and this release brings together their most inspiring and rabble rousing tracks — many of them from out-of-print albums, all of them never before released on vinyl before in the U.S. Waco Brothers play songs about the folks getting s on and songs about the system that’s doing the sting. They can be political, they can be personal, and sometimes there is no difference. Their shout-along manifestos and strident tomfoolery make for a potent elixir in times when reason and humor are at odds. With a hardy cackle and righteous rant, they’re down for the siege, as long as there’s enough beer to make it to last call.”
MY TWO CENTS: The revolution may not be televised, but it will be set to a country-rock beat and bellowed in a dive bar during dollar-draft night. Which is probably just as it should be. And hey, any album with a cover of I Fought The Law is worth the price of admission.
