Black Lips Country

You know I love good old outlaw country and I also love the garage/punk. Well here's  new tune that combines both.

It's surprisingly not-irreverent cover of a Waylon & Willie classic by The Black Lips.

I love this kind of cross-genre mash-up. Reminds me of the great Mudhoney/Jimmie Dale Gilmore collaboration back in the '90s. Of course zealots from either the country world or the punk sphere could very well hate this.

Their loss.





And here's that Townes Van Zandt song that Jimmie Dale and Mudhoney teamed up on.
