6 - FLATIRONS - PRAYER BONES - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Dim the lights, fan the flames, turn up the smoke; the FLATIRONS, a fresh young roots-rock combo from Portland, arrive with their debut CD on Checkered Past. The band's playing is strong but subtle, stopped in understated, atmospheric country classicism, then lead vocalist Wendy Pate unbridles her throaty croon, and your resistance will melt away faster than a sno-scone in the sun. Imagine the lush pipes of a Patsy or Brenda lee, strapped to the back of a supple thoroughbred as it leans into teh home stretch, breaks the tape, anb bolts the fence, disappearing over the sunset-smoldering hills beyond.

8 - HADACOL - BETTER THAN THIS - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Just what the doctor ordered. The perfect elixer for what is ailing in your country/rock library, four mid-western boys who more than deliver the goods on their Checkered Past debut. The Johnny Cash/Rockabilly influences fly all over this lively debut mixed with a friendly rockin' feel that welcomes you in and makes you feel right at home. Together with Lou Whitney (Skeletons, Morells) Hadacal provides the energetic musical backdrop for a honky-tonkin' good time. Sit back, relax, cause I don't get much "Better than This". For your information: Hadacol, named after the potent alcohol elixer that sponsored Hank Williams' radio show in the late 1940's.

9 - HOUSE, TOM - THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS CHANGING - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Forget what you think you know about Nashville songwriter types: Tom House destroys all archetypes with this debut release. A self-described barroom singer, Tom's brutal, poetic lyrics are delivered with spare melodicism and a singular voice, and underpinned with subtle brilliance by his backing band (which includes the cream of Nashville's independent players and members of Lambchop, under the gentle but firm hand of producer Scott Chase.

10 - HOUSE, TOM - THIS WHITE MAN'S BURDEN - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Another dark, swirling masterwork, distilled from stains of Appalachian music and Beat Poetry, from the Nashville Undergound's favorite "barroom singer" (his words), TOM HOUSE. From traditional elements of hillbilly and old-time music (plus more dirty guitar distortion), House & Co. craft edgy rural soundscapes as backdrops to his stark, striking lyricism. Hard truths, unflinching realism, and well-deep pathos. When folks refer to Checkered Past as the Fat Possum of White Poeple, Tom House is the best of what they mean.

11 - OLD JOE CLARKS - METAL SHED BLUES - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


The second release from this San Francisco combo lays waste --in, like 20 seconds -- to any thoughts of a sophomore slump; the haunting melodicism and deep country soul are still here,but backed up this time by some streetwise muscle and grit. Husband-and-wifecore Mike & Jill Coykendall flesh out the predominantly acoustic sound of their debut (Town Of Ten) with a full band: big-beat drums, swirling keyboards, scratchy guitars. Mike's songwriting remains unflinchingly honest andcompletely pretention-free; but here, the music itself occasionally invites you to step outside n'settle this, should any doubt remain.

12 - OLD JOE CLARKS - TOWN OF TEN - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Haunting melodies, deep country soul, and songs with "an intimacy that only unlimited space can afford" are the hallmarks of the Old Joe Clarks, a young SF combo. The band delivers its unflinchingly open eyed tales with a beautifully understated backing of acoustic guitar, banjo, dobro, fiddle and the occasional clarinet or melodica. (A three piece at the time of this recording, the band's percussion is a foot-pedal against an old suitcase for a uniquely casual, intimate feel) With a sometimes melancholy vibe that recalls 16 Horsepower of Tarnation. It's a record that settles into your pores like so much country dust.

13 - RED STAR BELGRADE - TELESCOPE - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Cruching guitars, plaintive ballads, and a songwriter's worldview that can only be described as dark, dark, dark...that's Red Star Belgrade. RSB continue to prove that they are an american original, bridging the gap between alternative country and hard driving rock. The band's most ambitious cd to date "Telescope" finds RSB adding melodica, slide guitar, hammond organ, piano, and mandolin to their trademark sound to create a truly distinctive record.

14 - RED STAR BELGRADE - THE FRACTURED HYMNAL - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Crushing guitars, plaintive ballads, and a songwriter's worldview that can only be described as dark, dark, dark.., that's Red Star Belgrade. Country melodicism rides waves of Neil Young/Crazy Horse rock, while singer/lyricist Bill Curry's straining twang of a voice spins out his tales of anger and cynism. Lightened just enough by the soft accompanying vocals of drummer/wife Grahan Harris-Curry.

15 - SOULED AMERICAN - FROZEN - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Souled American was significantly ahead of the country-rock curve when they released three Rough Trade albums in the late eighties. Most folks assume the band dissolved after the label tanked, but not so! They retreated into their Chicago home studio and continued to record: they took their understated, country inflected sound and stripped it down, pared it back, and streched it out till it seems impossible that it can still be holding together. Intensely, meticulously crafted, Souled American's newest records comprise some of the most personalized, lonely, and devistatingly sad music of this decade.

16 - SPANIC BOYS - TORTURE - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


The Spanic Boys are not standing still and if you think you know them, you'll be surprised by "Torture". This album of all new-material features the Spanics' hardest-rocking sounds to date, with their trademark close harmonies, screaming Fender guitars, catchy and clever original songs and a straight-ahead devotion to American rock-and-roll.

17 - WOMACK, TOMMY - POSITIVELY NA NA - (CD) 
CHECKERED PAST


Mr. & Ms America, prepare to meet your end-of-the-millenium Renaissance Man: Tommy Womack. A former member of post-punk faves Government Cheese and before their time roots rockers The Bisquits. Tommy steps into the solo-act spotlight with this Checkered Past debut. Uncommonly open-hearted and intelligent songwriting is Tommy's Gift, and he wraps it in guitar-cranked arrangements or strips down to its confessional, bare accoustic bones.
