And so it goes in American music: It takes a Brit to remind us how great American-made genres can be.

The Beatles and the Stones refreshed our memory on the awesomeness of U.S.-bred rock and roll. Now, Welshman Jon Langford reminds us of the heart, joy and pain born in our honky-tonks.

For almost 20 years, Langford has led Chicago's Waco Brothers through whisky-fied Texas-style romps. Before that, he fronted seminal Brit-punk unit the Mekons. He brought the punk fire with him and has been applying it to the Waco Brothers' twang, which digs into the spine of American country music and Southern rock. Steel guitars blister. Vocals howl into the breaking range. Under it all, drummer Joe Camarillo's knocking at the door like he's collecting an overdue debt.

Paul Burch -- a Nashville music scene staple and labelmates with the Waco Brothers on Bloodshot Records -- added his power for the band's 2012 album, "Great Chicago Fire." He joined the band in the 88.1 KDHX studio with intentions set on burning the place down.
