Raised Up In The Cornfield





















Finally managed to replace my copy of Delusions Of Banjer, that wonderful debut by the inimitable Bad Livers from Austin, Texas. My original copy fell victim to cd rot, I kid you not. To celebrate, here's a prime example of their modern twist on bluegrass, produced by Butthole Surfer Paul Leary. Banjo, fiddle and stand-up bass go wild, folks! And as a bonus track, as it's one of the greatest cover versions I've ever enjoyed, you get to hear them do the Pop, too.

Bad Livers - Uncle Lucius
Bad Livers -Lust For Life

So far, I've had two discs succumb to the dreaded cd rot, Ramone - both of them out of print now! Grrrr . . .

I'd forgotten all about this version of 'Lust For Life'. Brilliant.
