Uncle Tupelo No Depression on 180g LP
Long Out of Print on Vinyl!
The album that inspired a website, a magazine and a musical movement, Uncle Tupelo's landmark 1990 debut No Depression is intrinsically a punk-rock record with country themes. On the one hand the album is named after a song by A.P. Carter and features banjos, mandolins and fiddles and on the other the songs are played at a breakneck pace and feature thrashing guitars and a punk spirit.
Paying their respects to obvious influences like Gram Parsons, the Replacements and the Minutemen, the 12-song set accurately depicts the trials and tribulations of the rural, blue collar existence from the workingman anthems like "Factory Belt" and "Graveyard Shift" to the trappings of the nightlife on "Whiskey Bottle" and "Before I Break."
Equally as acclaimed as it is revered, No Depression brilliantly blends the heartbreak and longing of country music with the power and fury of punk-rock, done so with a precision that remains unmatched!
