Performer Notes
  • Audio Mixer: Dan Dietrich.
  • Recording information: Schuba's Tavern, Chicago, IL (12/2006).
  • Photographer: Frank Swider.
  • Over a decade into their fist-pumping tenure, the Waco Brothers finally release the live document that longtime fans--tired of explaining the live brilliance of this band to those underwhelmed by their studio output--richly deserve with WACO EXPRESS: LIVE & KICKIN' AT SCHUBA'S TAVERN. One listen to this gem and there will be no doubters.
  • Although the band started as a way for founder Jon Langford to sate his country yen long after the Mekons abandoned it in favor of a more punk approach, the Wacos onstage have always played honky-tonk so blisteringly and with such unbridled political bile that there is virtually no difference, anyway, between their idea of country and the common definition of punk. Recorded in their hometown Chicago haunt, Schuba's Tavern, WACO EXPRESS delivers 16 lean and mean band standards that could be confused with Clash songs were it not for drummer Steve Goulding's manic Orange Blossom shuffles and Marc Durante's steel-guitar flourishes. Even their cover of Neil Young's "Revolution Blues"--a song that practically demands self-indulgent jamming--clocks in at a brisk 2:56. Waco express, indeed.

No Depression (p.70) - "[T]he Brothers serve up all killer, no filler, going full-bore from the moment they rip into the set-opening rave-up 'Waco Express'."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Leaving the rough edges intact, they deliver a wealth of fat riffs, gang vocals and ragged fun..."
