Roger Knox, aka the Koori King of Country or Black Elvis as hes known in his homeland, is an Aboriginal Australian Country & Western singer with a honeyed bear hug of a voice. Bloodshot artist Jon Langford (Mekons, Waco Brothers) met Knox on a visit to Australia several years ago. When he heard of Roger and the potentially-soonto-be-lost subculture of this utterly unique cultural collision, Langford knew he had to be involved.
Stranger In My Land is a collection of songs originally written by Aborigine artists who were Knox's peers and predecessors; some tunes previously recorded but difficult to find as well as several unrecorded, handed-down folk songs. Stranger In My Land
features guest performances from Bonnie Prince Billy, Kelly Hogan, Dave Alvin (X, Blasters), Sally Timms and Jon Langford (Mekons), The Sadies, Andre Williams, and perhaps the last known recording from Charlie Louvin of the Louvin Brothers.

Also available: STRANGER IN MY LAND (LP).
