Country Club

So, I recently heard that punk rocker and co-founder of the LA punk group X, has released a new album... a country album. Yeah, who knew? So one night in Toronto, Doe shared the stage with this Canadian indie rock group, the Sadies, and they really hit it off. And now, they've released this collaborative CD called Country Club in which they cover the songs of people like Willie nelson and Johnny Cash. Doe says, "Country... always seemed like a snooze to me [until] the Sadies and I played together at a festival in Canada, and it was like, 'This is what [country] should be.'" In the style of John Cage, it seems that these musicians have no trouble "changing their minds. "
