A Coupla Hard Luck Favorites (7" Single)

Limited Edition of 500 SOLD OUT

Available digitally and on the compilation Making Singles, Drinking Doubles

With this 7" Rex and the Boys put their brand on two classic country giants: Freddy Fender and Poison. Yes, Poison.

Full Description

With this 7" Rex and the Boys put their brand on two classic country heartbreakers. The first is  Freddy Fender's  "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights." Who better than our favorite kings of pain to recast this little ditty about getting tossed out like the trash but still hanging on to the love? Worth it for the killer steel guitar solo alone.

On the B side, Rex's cover of  Poison's "Every Rose has its Thorn"  helps explain why all those metal guys went through a chaps and hat phase. Who knew the makeup was there just to hide the tracks of their tears? Witness for yourself the power of country music to rise above a hair band -- no matter how much spray they use.
