A walk in the Park, Volume 224

WARDEN TRACKS... Here's one from the 90s that you may've heard, but it didn't necessarily break through to the mainstream like so many other "alternative" artists did at that time, and maybe that's one of the reasons this band always seemed so damn cool to me.  Plus, seeing them live at the Republik in Calgary during their "peak" was a wicked experience!  I'm talking about Cracker, the brainchild of David Lowery, who was also responsible for the not-very-well-known band, Camper Van Beethoven.  From their second album, "Kerosene Hat," which contained the underground classic, "Euro-Trash Girl," enjoy some Cracker, with "LOW."
