NQ Arbuckle
The Last Supper in a Cheap Town
(Six Shooter Records)

For everyone out there who thinks country music is just for cowboys, you’ve yet to experience its hip half-brother, better known as ‘alternative country.’

Bigger, better and definitely more listener-friendly, this fairly new type of sound is slowly making its way into the mainstream music scene (you must have heard of Neko Case or Cuff the Duke).

NQ Arbuckle’s latest release The Last Supper in a Cheap Town is destined to become a monumental album in the world alternative country. With a Bob Seager-esque voice, front man Neville Arbuckle has managed to capture the true essence of great song writing. NQ Arbuckle’s new album combines elements of traditional country music with less twang. The lyrics are heartfelt and clever. The best songs on the album include “You Look Like a Wreck”, “Darkness Has Fallen” and “The Autumn Leaves.”

The Last Supper in a Cheap Town is definitely a worthy follow-up to Hanging the Battle-Scarred Pinata.
