Remastered and for the first time on vinyl this incredible 12″ EP where the country legend Steve Earle teams up with the Supersuckers. Originally released in 1997. The Supersuckers decided to up the country ante during the recording of their fourth album, Must’ve Been High, turning themselves into some kind of genuine cowpunks (the group was always punkier and rowdier than any ’80s cowpunk outfit). So, it was only fitting that the band followed the album with a split-single with the punkiest country singer of the ’80s, Steve Earle. In classic Sub Pop tradition — think the classic Mudhoney/Jimmie Dale Gilmore split single, in particular, but there are loads others — the Suckers tackle an Earle song (“Angel Is the Devil”) and Earle covers one of their tunes (“Creepy Jackalope Eye”), then after a joint cover (the Rolling Stones’ “Before They Make Me Run,” the definitive Keith Richards anthem), the originals are offered up.
