The Knitters are back. After a 20 year recording hiatus, John Doe, Exene Cervenka, and DJ Bonebrake, all of the legendary punk band X, have joined forces with Grammy® winner Dave Alvin and Jonny Ray Bartel to release their first album since 'Poor Little Critter on the Road,' their 1985 debut. John Doe testifies: 'The Knitters, like their music, don't do anything hasty. Since our last record's been out for a while and it did pretty good, we figured it was just about time to put out another.' Their new album, 'The Modern Sounds of The Knitters,' revisits the alternative country sound they helped create with a new batch of originals, plus covers as far-ranging as Steppenwolf's 'Born To Be Wild' and The Stanley Brothers' 'Rank Stranger.' Also included are re-workings of the X classics 'Burning House of Love' and 'In This House That I Call Home,' and 'The New Call of the Wrecking Ball,' a sequel to The Knitters' classic from their debut.
