“ Give Back The Keys to My Heart ” - Uncle Tupelo . When I first heard Uncle Tupelo it was weird ... like I already heard what they were doing in my head … in fact it was what I wanted to do but had no idea how to accomplish . This Doug Sahm cover was the hook for me but it opened up a whole new world of alt country …. mixing roots and puck and rock . Taking the attitude and urgency of Hank Williams and marrying it with the snotty attitude of The Clash and The Stooges . And it was all done with a garage DIY sound that was exactly what I wanted to do with my band . It was so inspirational .
