Bluesbreakers: The Yawpers

Punk-blues rabble-rousers from Denver, sticking it to Uncle Sam

Not since Born In The USA has an album title been so ripe for misinterpretation as The Yawpers’ American Man. If you’re conjuring up mental images of star-spangled banners, apple pie and good dentistry, then Nate Cook is quick to dash them. “It’s not patriotic at all,” stresses the frontman. “We’ll probably run into the same issues as Springsteen, where the wrong people get their hands on it and make it their own. The record has a sense of the darkness that’s very prominent in America.”
