"Waco World is lean and mean, like a boxer who's spent weeks in training for the big fight. It's primed, ready and it smells blood ... You can't aim for timelessness, but if the ingredients are right, you might achieve it. And on Waco World the Waco Brothers have hit it spot on." —The Rocket

Dateline 1999: With Nashville cranking out a clanking assembly line of belly-button-baring android bimbos and hat-wearing cyborg hick hunks, and with and "y'allternative" flinging a stink on Western Wear like the rise and fall of "grunge" tainted the flannel shirt, it was high time for a new living, breathing, shitting, bleeding animal--and we need it now!!! Enter Waco World. Renew!! Renew!!

Waco World kicks out over a dozen piss and pint glass-fueled anthems that show a whole new set of aces up their fringed sleeves, and features the crusading work of converts Rick "Cookin" Sherry (Devil in a Woodpile) on washboard, Kelly Hogan on vocals, and the Poi Dog Pondering horn section. The Waco Brothers deliver Waco World as a glimpse into the future where seemingly disparate influences like Hank Williams, Mick and Keith, Jimmy Cliff, and Morphine share rounds. The spirits are there--you just have to open a bottle and open your mind.

"The Wacos deliver their dark, driving country-rock with all the delicacy of butchers on a bender." —Chicago Tribune

"Pogues-y, piss 'n' vinegar hard country rock that remains great fun whether the subject at hand is broken hearts or broken bars. [The result is] just short of an hour's worth of boozy tunes just beggin' for a joint to blow the roof off of." —The Stranger

"Their music is ten times more real than any cosmetically enhanced face on the country charts. If bands like the Waco Brothers ultimately wind up saving the heart and soul of country music for the 21st century, don't say I didn't tell you so." —Pittsburgh Gazette

"The Waco Brothers don't jump on the No Depression covered wagon so much as take the reins and drive drunkenly into a deadly pass where the heroes of punk rock and country lie in wait to mock lesser outfits." —Boston Phoenix
