EP218: The Knitters “Poor Little Critter on the Road”

X always had elements of Americana and Country on the edges of their music but never as straight forward or overt as when they swapped their legendary guitar player Billy Zoom for another LA legend (Dave Alvin of the Blasters) and changed their name to the Knitters.  Half of the songs on their debut are covers but they fit so neatly alongside the John Doe / Exene Cervenka originals that it’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it was recorded.  It’s a timeless sound for sure, but how does it hold up on 2023?   

RIP Bob Nalbandian
