Show everything by Knitters
Members of legendary punk bands X and the Blasters got together and formed the Knitters in the mid-80's and this was their killer debut! First press on black vinyl!
Before MTV created Unplugged, X released a shrewd blend of country, traditional and original songs, as the Knitters, minus Billy Zoom plus Johnny Ray Bartel and Dave Alvin. No longer struggling to incorporate their love of roots musics into their own hard rock sound, X gave over to the acoustic project Poor Little Critter on the Road with songs like "Someone Like You" and "Cryin' But My Tears Are Far Away." John Doe's version of Merle Haggard's "Silver Wings" may be the definitive version, and the previously recorded "The New World" and "Love Shack" sound wonderful in this spare context -- think the Carter Family.
