Happy New Year and welcome back to Burn a Million Miles...
To get us back into the zone I've gotta little Western Swing thing this week, from the legendary BR-549 .
Way back in the 90's when punk was the only thing playin in my walkman - the grunge seen was getting boring and Pokemon had just been introduced to planet earth . 1996 marked the year of BR-549's release their debut self titled album -with influences ranging from traditional country "how it use to be" through to "The Clash", It's easy to see why these good o'l boys earned themselves a solid following in alternative circles.
For this week's track I just couldn't go past "Little Ramona" an all time favourite of mine that takes me back to my own journey of musical discovery.
Just for the record, I still wont give up my Dr Martins.
