March 27 — THUNDERHEAD, The Gun Club (1987)

imageLydia Loveless’s bio suggests she’s the missing link between Loretta Lynn and Exene Cervenka. After listening to her last album, however, I doubt it’s a comparison either lady would appreciate. Clearly, Loveless has been put through the Nashville hit machine — too forced, too polished. But it did make me yearn for Exene’s old band X, which then led to a spiral of 1980s L.A. punk.
