Released:
Label: Quarterstick Records
From the first droning note that opens "Hello Cruel World" through mournful closer "The Letter" (both anchored by perfectly imperfect vocals from Tom Greenhalgh), the Mekons suddenly sound completely sure of what they're doing and why. Continuing the honky-tonk flirtation that began on Fear and Whiskey without sacrificing any (well, much) of their experimental edge, the band deftly melds punk guitar, country fiddle and too many pints of beer to create something both timeless and modern. Stunning.
