POP MUSIC / Angela Lewis on pop
Tuesday 20 September 1994
Still, early days yet. Maybe they'll realize that drip, drip MOR masquerading as country won't entice post-graduate, post-indie-radio twiddlers suspicious of Radio One but looking for a news-overload-free alternative to GLR. Perhaps it'll dawn that Brits are too damn discerning to swallow Seventies-style jock meanderings, and they'll introduce a John Peel-esque, late-night newcomer who'll mix Loudon Wainwright III with fresh faces like Louisville's Freakwater and Palace Brothers, mavericks who redefine country with their passionate, if a little warped, minds. Presently, Country 1035 is less than a month old, but already showing a fortysomething middle-aged spread.
