Liek I saw Country Death Song on that Rough Trade at the BBC thing and it blew my mind yeh?
It's off their second album, "Hallowed Ground", which is a dark folky Christian rock type record. The first album is their best though - it's ten angst-ridden songs about not getting laid. It's wonderful.
'Violent Femmes' album, ideally original ten track version, on record.
that generally is where you should end with the Violent Femmes too, apart from the odd highlight (like country death song)
the first album, is a classic.
second album is a less pop companion piece to the first with songs written about the same time, everything i have heard of theirs post that is underwhelming.
