Hmm...I can hardly say that I'm an 'Alt Country' fan. It's not a genre that is very familiar to me. In fact I'm quite insecure what that genre covers, but my best shot could be something like the Danish band D.A.D. They actually started out calling themselves 'Disneyland After Dark', but had to change their name to avoid a sue from the Disney corporation.
Their first 2 albums; Call Of The Wild and D.A.D. Draws A Circle, could very well be what you call 'Alt-Country'. The lyrics are basically making fun of certain parts of the American society, or should I rather say the way some describe certain parts of the U.S. society.
I find lyrics like 'Counting The Cattle' and 'Sad Sad X-mas' absolutely hilarious.
The music were quite 'rock-driven' but with lots of country elements. I believe we used to call it 'Cowpunk'. It has nothing to do with punk however.
If this describes what 'Alt-Country' is about, I'm defiantly a fan, at least of those two albums.
With their 3'rd release they switched and became more of a Hardrock/Metal band, but kept their crazy sense of humour. At that time of their career they became quite big in Europe.
