Jon Langford And His Sadies – Mayors Of The Moon

Whichever way you slice it, this is a banker. Langford's recent rollicksome rip-'em-ups with The Waco Brothers are among his most inspired, while Toronto's largely unheralded Sadies, led by brothers Travis and Dallas Good, are modern roots-rock's best kept secret, tripping all switches from surf and chicken-scratch country to garage, psychedelia and Morricone twang.

Whichever way you slice it, this is a banker. Langford’s recent rollicksome rip-’em-ups with The Waco Brothers are among his most inspired, while Toronto’s largely unheralded Sadies, led by brothers Travis and Dallas Good, are modern roots-rock’s best kept secret, tripping all switches from surf and chicken-scratch country to garage, psychedelia and Morricone twang. Langford leads the charge with his throaty gallop, spitting political venom (the war-baiting “What Makes Johnny Run?”), fellow ex-Mekon Sally Timms adds silver tonsils to “Shipwreck” and pedal-steel great Bob Egan is outstanding throughout.
