One of the very best ‘Americana’ tracks you’ll ever hear.
Back in 2000 Neko Case and Her Boyfriends topped the Peel Festive 50 with their track Twist the Knife here’s a bootleg of that performance, the quality is not the best but still it’s a fine listen with tracks from the Furnace Room Lullaby album along with a great selection of covers including the Everly Brothers Bowling Green that appeared on The Virginian album, Bessie Griffin’s Lord Don’t Move the Mountain after which Loose (I assume it’s the same Loose) get a shout out, Aretha Franklin’s Runnin’ Out of Fools and Look for Me (I’ll Be Around) by Ketty Lester
