Jay_2004: Did you know that alt.country started as a twist between punk rock and americana?

from Legacy Recordings website (promoting Uncle Tupelo's Anthology):

The first and only retrospective of these alt.country pioneers!

Uncle Tupelo was born in the tiny railroad town of Belleville, IL, when high school friends Jay Farrar, Jeff Tweedy and Mike Heidorn started their mutual quest to blend their punk rock roots and their increasing fascination with the traditional songs and sounds of American roots music.

Enjoy!
