For A Life of Sin: Insurgent Chicago Country
Where it all began. Our first release. 17 tracks of Chicago's own roots-rockin'est shit-kickin'est artists setting the template.
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 (their first recording), The New Duncan Imperials, The Riptones, and more.
