No Depression

Recommended Posts

No Depression was a terrific niche publication... it will be missed.

Americana/alt country never had a band that broke huge and opened the floodgates like Nirvana did for the alternative nation. Probably the biggest artists to break out during No Depression's run were Wilco (who quickly shed and dismissed the "alt country" tag) and Lucinda Williams (whose last few records failed to capitalize on the stunning Car Wheels).

But those that followed Uncle Tupelo and then eagerly awaited the debut Son Volt and Wilco discs believed something very special was brewing in 1994/1995. That first Son Volt record seemed to herald a natual heir to The Band's americana throne. Unfortunately Son Volt and Farrar were never able to recpature the magic of Trace, whose brilliance is undimmed 13 years later.

A French friend of mine who currently lives in Durham, North Carolina, said he saw a copy of No Depression as a magazine, but in a different version - it's released every quarter now, and costs $ 20. The Mark Olson & Gary Louris album got a long review, he said.
