Okemah And The Melody Of Riot
Label: Transmit Sound/Legacy
Steve Earle isn't the only twang-rocker railing against the republic. Named after and inspired by the small Okla. town that was Woody Guthrie's birthplace, Okemah is original Son Volt member Jay Farrar's most politically-driven work. "Jet Fighter" points the finger at Dubya in a "Fortunate Son" way.
