They Made Her a Criminal is the latest release from THE TRANSGRESSORS, a Telecaster-driven Texas Noir band with roots firmly planted in West Texas rock and roll, East Texas country, and Austin psych. Much like the outlaw country stars of the '70s who found a way to bring together the hippies and the rednecks, The Transgressors routinely play to crowds comprising garage rockers, reverb junkies, and two-steppers—all bound together by the contagious electricity of the band’s live shows. Whereas their self-titled debut found the band exploring a broad palette, incorporating organs, piano, trumpet, and marching snares in an homage to composer Ennio Morricone, this vinyl release is the work of a stripped-down lineup that hews closer to the roots music that the band members all grew up on. The Transgressors have rattled the juke joints of towns from Austin to New York and everywhere in between for going on 18 years, and They Made Her a Criminal captures the energy of that lived-in live sound.   Recorded by MICHAEL CROW (Grand Champeen) in 2006, the tracks for this record sat on the shelf for a decade before the band self-released a CD in 2016. As it happened, one of the people who bought that CD was Super Secret Records founder RICHARD LYNN, who thought that vinyl would best capture the band’s tube-driven sound and offered to re-release it on an LP. In order to get the perfect sound, frontman CHAD NICHOLS called longtime friend and collaborator JASON WARD at Chicago Mastering Service to do a rich remastering for vinyl, and the resulting slab swells with vintage tones and analog warmth.
