JELLO BIAFRA AND MOJO NIXON / Prairie Home Invasion (1994)
PHI freaks people out. Not because it’s creepy, but because it’s country music and they can't help but like it. That scares them. It’s not just regular county. It’s Cowpunk. Yup. Whatever that is. Mojo Nixon knows, as it’s undoubtedly his album musically. It’s Jello’s lyrically. The two opposites meet in the middle and deliver a disc full of hick tunes that you can’t help but tap your foot to, or someone else’s foot. It goes without saying that Mojo fans will lap it up, but if you’re a punk at heart and loved Dead Kennedys there's a chance you’ll love it too, even if you hate country. Buy two copies... one for grandma.
