While I do enjoy a good variety of country records - especially Hank Williams, whom I adore - it is something so quintessentially American that I never really felt comfortable talking about it. It's like the delta blues, or the Brazilian sertão: okay I can listen to it and like it, but at the end of the day, what the fuck do I know? It seems to be a parallel universe where punching your wife is not just accepted but desirable.

I read somewhere, probably in an old issue of Uncut, that back in the 90s there was an American country star who was so big that all he wanted was some musical anonymity, so he released a record under a different name, posing as an unknown Australian rocker. I forgot the name but I've always been curious.

Country is great. It’s a cliche, but three chords and the truth is all you need.

All My Ex’s Live in Texas by George Strait is a bona fide classic.
