Mojo Nixon - record



Mojo Nixon is one of those characters in American Music that are difficult to categorize. With his pal Skid Roper, on washboard and harp, he blazes a comic trail with rants about being stuck on the freeway on the way to your job, his desire for Martha Quinn of MTV and meeting Jesus at your local McDonalds. The standout anthem is “Burn Down The Malls” an anti-consumerism screed touching on suburban sprawl, shopping hell and the 21 year old drinking age limit.
So grab yourself a warm can of Schaffer beer and go along for the ride.
