A Fix Back East

A Fix Back East
(Rounder)
A gelatinous mix of the whole Anthology of American Folk Music finds these cats delving into pre-WWII gospel, hillbilly and country-blues while grabbing the energy of rock. A Fix Back East is a raw and twisted ride through the American gothic and dammit it makes for one hell of record. Grinding lo-fi originals, plus an apocalyptic and primitive reading of Dock Boggs’ “Country Blues” make this one of the freshest new CDs in the Americana genre. This is destined to be one of the best of 2004.
