      Maybe Semi-Twang should have tried something else. Back in 1988 when Warner Brothers released their first record, Salty Tears, someone was thinking their kind of country-tinged midcoast rock and roll was sorely needed. That proved to be true a few years later -- it's now called "Americana." That record drew comparisons to The Band, Creedence Clearwater and other luminaries like Doug Sahm. Alas, critics were not the record buyers of the late 80's -- a time when groups like Fluke Of Seagulls ruled the roost. Anyhoo, the band regrouped in 2009, things were more favorable and, as the band is set to to release their fourth album, Kenosha, what they do is less outlier and just outright good. Check out the title song you'll get the same jolt of recognition believers like Talking Head Jerry Harrison felt when he first heard them and passed their demo on to the folks at WB. Listen to the rest and you'll understand why artists like Dwight Yoakam and The Bodeans have covered leader John Sieger's songs. They knew this stuff has always been around and they also understood why: It's as real as the factory floor and as sturdy as a pair of steel toed boots.
