All Hail Cracker’s “Euro Trash Girl”

One of the great things about the Internet is its use as a way-back time machine.

So let’s take a trip, shall we, to an early-90’s band hailing out of northern California, known as Cracker, who were among the most undervalued and underappreciated musical groups of that contradictory era. Hidden (literally) at the very back of their only bestselling album, Kerosene Hat, was perhaps the album’s best song. (How oddly wonderful that a band would purposefully hide an album’s best track!)

That song is called, “Euro Trash Girl” and even as a now older/more refined gentleman of wealth and taste, remains among my favorites of that time period. It’s a shambling, tongue-in-cheek, mix of alternative meets hillbilly, that tells a tale with a nod and a wink.
