Old 97's

The Old 97's are an "alt country" band originally based in Dallas. The group formed in 1993 and took their name from the Johnny Cash song "Wreck of the Old 97." They describe themselves as a rock band with influences as varied as the Kinks, the Beatles, the Pixies, David Bowie, Johnny Cash, and Merle Haggard. The band often performs country standards made famous by the latter two musicians, and has interspersed a number of these on their half-dozen albums over the last decade. The band originally feuded with Ryan Adams of fellow alt-country band Whiskeytown, but both are on good terms today.

I first heard Time Bomb on the movie "Clay Pigeons" but quickly forgot about it until I heard the band on the now defunct Dickey Barrett morning show on Indie 103.1.
