This one'll set your hair on fire. True punk mettle fearlessly cross-bred with deep country soul. The Bloodshot debut CD by the favorite sons of Dallas is chock full of blinding stutter guitar, soaring vocal harmonies, and keen songwriting. Find out how it all started. It was also our first hit record (sort of). Features cameos by Jon Langford and yodeling legend Don Walser. Twelve hard-charging Texas now-classics including "Victoria Lee" and "Big Brown Eyes" as well as blistering covers by country stalwarts Bill Monroe, Jon Langford, and The Three Caballeros (country, punk, and Disney ... it sounds like heaven to us).

"Further proof that country-rock is not an oxymoron, nor the province of laid-back Californians and smug Nashville wankers." —Option

"Injecting new energy into an alternative country movement too often marred by pretentious dilettantes ... the 97's deliver well-wrought 'twang-core' tunes with infectious enthusiasm and a knowing wink ... Pure honky-tonkin' ecstasy." —Tower Pulse!

"A band as reverent toward country music as it is rooted in punk... Mix it all together and you get gut-punching, sing-along music with lyrics so good you have to smile." —Hits
