The Knitters
The Knitters The Knitters are a country side project of singer Exene Cervenka, bassist John Doe, drummer D.J. Bonebrake and guitarist/songwriter Dave Alvin (ex-Blasters) — all former members of legendary punk band X — and Johnny Ray Bartel (Mike Ness). By covering Merle Haggard, Leadbelly and Helen Carter, Doe and crew opened some ears previously closed to county music. It's hard to imagine as existing without 1985's Knitter's album 'Poor Little Critter on the Road.'
