DBTs More Songs About Buildings & Whores

 

And politicians, natch.

 

By Blurt Staff

 

The delightfully-titled Ugly Buildings,
Whores, and Politicians
arrives August 2 via New West, and if you haven’t
determined yet from the cover art, above, it’s from the Drive-By Truckers. This
album will contain DBT’s greatest hits from the years 1998-2009, produced and
mixed by David Barbe, who has been with the Truckers since their
beginnings. 

 

Throughout those 11 years, the Drive-By Truckers have had
quite a successful musical career.  With hits from records such as 2001’s Southern
Rock Opera,
2003’s Decoration Day, and 2004’s The Dirty South,
Ugly Buildings, Whores, and Politicians showcases their finest
moments. This greatest hits album covers DBT’s first 7 albums and first 11 years.
“Since the cut-off date here, the Drive-By Truckers have already made two of
their best albums: 2010’s The Big To-Do and this year’s Go-Go
Boots”,
says David Fricke in the liner notes for Ugly Buildings,
Whores, and Politicians
.
