LOS CHICOS MUERTOS -
”Folksongs For The Criminally Insane”
Another entry to this marvellous little part of the world wide web is named Los Chicos Muertos, and if you've studied the contents of the 9pm website you should know that it's Grae J. Wall & Andy Keeble of the Anglo German Low Stars. Two friendly maniacs from sunny St. Albans/UK with one of their numerous side-projects. But listen up - this one is gorgeous alt-country from Hertfordshire.
But Los Chicos Muertos
wouldn't be Los Chicos Muertos if they'd just play their fiddle, strum their guitar and sing along the Nashville-way. This is great alternative-country songwriting, accompanied by drum-machine/sequencer programming, some guest appearances on keyboards by Bill Johnson
and - best of all - as a guestsinger you can hear Polly Huggett
. And that's definitely one of the reasons to purchase this cd. It's quite a time since I've heard a song like "Bakersfield".
