Here's where it all began. Here's where the term was coined. Inspired by a dream, a vision, or perhaps a tequila-induced frenzy coupled with a healthy disdain for most contemporary music. Our FIRST release is a generous helping of Chicago's own roots-rockin'est shit-kickin'est artists.

Tracks from Moonshine Willy, Jon Langford (in his first Bloodshot incarnation), Swollen Spleens, Freakwater, Wink O'Bannon, Robbie Fulks, two from the deans of Chicago country music, The Sundowners (including the 1950's barn-burner "Rockin' Spot"--originally recorded for Chess Records and lovingly re-mastered here), The Texas Rubies, Bottle Rockets, The Handsome Family, The New Duncan Imperials, The Riptones, and more. Disturbing cover art by Jon Langford.

"A raw and vital collection that will shake up any rocker's idea of what country is, and what it might become." —St Louis Riverfront Times

"A mighty strong statement from the other side of country... music that would be equally at home in a country honky tonk or an urban punk bar." —Chicago Daily Southtown
