Modern Sounds of the Knitters Modern Sounds of the Knitters CD (2005)

Knitters CD discography The Knitters were a side project that featured Blasters guitarist Dave Alvin and members from the L.A. punk band X playing stripped-down country music. While they may not have been the most celebrated alt-country band of the era, their 1985 debut was historically significant in that it turned many a punk rocker on to old-school Americana. While that album was initially a one-shot deal, the Knitters reunited for a new album to mark their 20th anniversary. THE MODERN SOUNDS OF THE KNITTERS pretty much picks up where its predecessor left off. Alvin, John Doe, Exene, and company twang up the old X tune "Burning House of Love" and Alvin's own "Dry River," while adding rock energy and endearing punk imprecision to tradition-minded arrangements of songs by country stars Jimmie Driftwood and Bill Anderson. The closing version of Steppenwolf's "Born to be Wild" is a left-field send-up that ends this reunion album on an appealingly good-humored note. Audio Mixer: Mark Linett. Arranger: Exene Cervenka. The Knitters: John Doe (vocals, acoustic guitar, slide guitar); Jonny Ray Bartel (double bass); D.J. Bonebrake (rub-board); Dave Alvin, Exene Cervenka. Personnel: Exene Cervenka (vocals); Dave Alvin (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, steel guitar, baritone guitar); D.J. Bonebrake (snare drum, percussion).

The Knitters were a side project of the band X. Their only album features covers of country and folk songs, along with acoustic versions of two X songs and a few originals. 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." ...

The Knitters, a spin-off of the seminal punk band X that included original Blasters guitarist/songwriter Dave Alvin, were some young rock & roll fans' exposure to REAL country music. The style of the Knitters--both in their choice of covers and their originals--looked back to a time when country music was still known as "hillbilly," before it had acquired any sort of mainstream polish, when it was still a rough-hewn music about hard times. Here, a bunch of roots-oriented bands pay tribute to the Knitters and the songs they sang. The approaches range from the smooth yet eerily powerful version of Merle Haggard's ...
