• 6 string drag High Hat (CD, £12.75)

    In the mid to late 90s, the Raleigh, North Carolina-based 6 String Drag stood out as pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement, grinding it out in the clubs alongside Whiskeytown, Drive-By Truckers and Son Volt. The band's Steve Earle-produced album remains an undisputed classic. High Hat has been out of print for years. Schoolkids Records proudly reissues the alt-country classic. This is a must for all alt-country and Americana fans worldwide as it is considered one of the best alt-country albums of all time. After a 16-year hiatus, 6 String Drag reunited in 2014 and played a handful of reunion shows, including the 40th Anniversary of the legendary Schoolkids Records retail store in Raleigh, NC alongside Drivin' N' Cryin' and The Baseball Project, featuring Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Scott McCaughey (Minus 5) and Mike Mills (R.E.M.) This led to more shows and eventually to the release of 2015's Roots Rock 'N' Roll (Royal Potato Family). "I'm so thrilled to get to see 6 String Drag again. They're as great as ever. Like reconnecting with a long-lost friend" - Patterson Hood (Drive-By Truckers)
