Shaking off the plague days like a snake sheds its skin, the Waco Brothers stumble out of the empty, burning desert with a fierce thirst and an epic new album, The Men That God Forgot.
"Harking back to the vulgar days before crossover country, The Men That God Forgot presents vivid vignettes of forlorn characters under severe stress and calls out the society that let them down." - No Depression
The Men That Time Forgot is the first collection of original Waco tunes since 2016's Going Down In History. Recorded by Mike Hagler at Kingsize Soundlabs in Chicago in 2022, band mainstays Jon Langford (The Mekons) and Dean Schlabowske were joined by now permanent members, violinist Jean Cook and drummer Dan Massey.
The cinematic brass parts were arranged and performed by longtime collaborator Max Crawford with Dave Smith. Other Waco Cousins appearing are Barkley McKay on piano and organ, Patty Vega on jingling tambourine and Andre Michot of the Lost Bayou Ramblers on accordion.
