Old 97's: The Grand Theatre (Volume One)

Rob Hughes, Uncut, February 2011

Raw-blooded rock'n'twang from veteran Texan four-piece

There was a time when Old 97's looked set to reap the same dividends as their peers Whiskeytown and Wilco. They were certainly in the right place (Dallas, Texas) at the right time (the mid-'90s "alt.country" boom), but things didn't quite work out.

Total word count of piece: 335
