Cincinnati’s own Wolverton Brothers always skirted the line between country and what was being labeled as “alternative music.” The band had embraced roots music in their early days, stretching out beyond just traditional country as they went along. However, their My Assasin / Max Gomez Love Singles Club 7-inch caused some confusion for the band as they began touring. Being the only release the band put out on the label, they found they were constantly referred to as a “Sub Pop band” whenever they toured outside their hometown. In a 2010 interview with City Beat, bassist Jay Mccubbin says that Sub Pop’s Jonathan Poneman referred to the band as “cerebral” in an early phone call.
