Robbie Fulks

Robbie Fulks has made a career out of pissing people off in creative ways. After building a cult following with two mid-'90s platters of hardcore '50s honky-tonk, Fulks took an ambitious twang-pop turn on Let's Kill Saturday Night and 2001's Couples in Trouble, confusing some fans but never abandoning the trademark piss and vinegar wit of early numbers like "She Took a Lot of Pills (and Died)" and "Fuck This Town" (an ode to Nashville). His new album, Georgie Hard, marks a return to Fulks' country side, although this time he forgoes '50s honky-tonk to mine a slicker '70s countrypolitan sound. Former Commander Cody guitarist Bill Kirchen opens with his band, Too Much Fun.
