Electric Waco Chair

Genre: Rock, Country; Producer (group): Bloodshot

The Waco Brothers may be Chicago-based, but coleader Jon Langford (also a founder of the Mekons) remains a Brit who approaches country rock at two extremes: abandon and trepidation. Thus, while the CD Electric Waco Chair commences with the raucous ”It’s Not Enough” and hits a peak of jangling catchiness with ”Walking on Hell’s Roof Looking at the Flowers,” the soul of Chair is elsewhere — in doom-struck tunes like ”Dragging My Own Tombstone” that wouldn’t be out of place on a Hank Williams collection.
