Good album! Punk has always had a curious relationship with country, and The Mekons put out several albums in the genre. The twangy sound actually fits them pretty well, especially with Sally Timms’ wonderful voice. Though under the branch of ‘country’, the album never falls into the sickly sweet Nashville sound, thankfully, and treads the material closer to say, The Clash. Recommended!
