***For over a dozen years LAMBCHOP has been Nashville’s most fucked-up country band. Continually challenging the notion of what ‘Nashville’ and ‘Country’ mean, the ever changing cast of characters in Lambchop have turned out brilliant album after brilliant album. On The Decline of Country & Western Civilization the disparate members of Lambchop have collected A-sides, B-sides, compilation tracks and unreleased songs in a chronological compendium of a golden age in their career. Spanning the years 1994 through 1999, this collection from the Lambchop archives centers around the weather-worn and haunting voice of Kurt Wagner, the one constant in a band that numbers as many as twenty and as few as four depending on the time or place. If you’re currently enjoying the Silver Jews or relative newcomers like Okkervil River or M. Ward, come discover a fertile musical history where Lambchop ties together influences as diverse as Porter Wagoner, Curtis Mayfield and the Velvet Underground with contemporaries like Giant Sand, Vic Chesnutt and Sonic Youth.
