Kings Of Americana: Lambchop, Calexico, Wheat

Gavin Martin, Uncut, June 2000


THE GREAT AMERICAN Music Hall is an exotic relic in the middle of San Francisco's Tenderloin district. Outside, the streets are full of junkies, hobos and acid casualties who drift in a half-life or stand lost and listless, part of the downmarket urban furniture. Out here, too: sleazy massage parlours, low-rent doss houses and boarded-up shop fronts.
