In 1999 JERRY TEEL (HONEYMOON KILLERS, CHROME CRANKS), KID CONGO POWERS (THE CRAMPS, GUN CLUB, NICK CAVE's BAD SEEDS), BOB BERT (SONIC YOUTH, PUSSY GALORE), JACK MARTIN (LITTLE PORKCHOP), and BARRY LONDON came together and recorded and released their self-titled debut album. THE KNOXVILLE GIRLS lay down a raw blend of country/western, soul, rockabilly and blues as interpreted by their collective Lower East Side psyche. They've been described as "no wave country" and "a cross between Charlie Feathers and the Velvet Underground." They've toured extensively in the US and Europe to enthusiastic response. Bigger, louder and grittier than their debut, In A Paper Suit is an absolute rock'n'roll masterpiece. The Rolling Stones would pay good money to call this album their own.
