The latest from the Waco Brothers & Paul Burch is "Great Chicago Fire" and it's on Bloodshot. This is a kick-ass country rock band that almost forces you to drink beer and regret or get over what might've been. Dean Schlabowske has the economical guitar solo figured out - sometimes, he seems to be channeling Dickie Betts - and Jon Langford has the swaggering yet effortless frontman thing covered. This is album Number Ten for these Chicago rockers and ten more seem to be no problem. Nothing close to a clunker and "Someone That You Know" is yet another solid cry in your beer enabler. No doubt, this band shreds live. Oh, and who's Paul Burch? Guitar and vocals and his name up in lights.
