Originally posted by the article Burnside was considered one of the last great purveyors of North Mississippi hill country blues. He garnered cult-hero status in 1996, when he and his band teamed up with jam rockers the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion for A Ass Pocket of Whiskey, which successfully incorporated punk with the blues.
