Product Overview

With a sound that cannot be categorized (why is it back in the day Neil Young could throw some lap steel at you or the Stones could cop some fiddle action and it all got called rock?), and a public so inured by the tepid slop flooding the airwaves, New Deal may still need a miracle to change the world. More than anyone, though, the Wacos Brothers realize that in a world where you have so little power, so small a voice against the forces of homogenization and corportate malfeasance, sometimes the only thing you can control is to make sure you catch the eye of the bartender before last call is over. Who says you can't whistle on the way to the gallows?

Professional Reviews
Uncut (11/02, p.115) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[The] country blooze boys are still raging mightily against the machine...a tirade of honky-tonk rockers, souped-up twangfests and fiddles that maraud like starving hyenas..."
Magnet (1/03, p.108) - "...Highly entertaining. It's impossible not to enjoy Langford's acerbic wordplay...NEW DEAL is a fine listen..."
Mojo (Publisher) (10/02, p.104) - "...Hard-rocking honky-tonk with a whiskey-drenched country base...that's part Drifting Cowboys and part Clash..."
Artist Bio
Sure, we all know that a Waco Brothers show is a boozy, sweaty, and loud affirmation of all that is good and righteous in the realm of the rock and the roll. They play as if their lives depend on it. What often gets lost in the steamy, sozzled aftermath of shows is that, over the course of the past eight years, the Wacos have produced a body of work that is consistently innovative and wildly entertaining, loud and literate, personal and political. Few bands can so fearlessly embrace such a broad range of influences, throw them into the Waco-izer, and emerge with fresh ways to gleefully and despondently tell it like it is--the warts, the injustice, and the crushed dreams--without batting an eye or spilling a drop.
