“The Legend of Chavo Guerrero”

There are not a lot of musicians I would have faith in to make a solid and thoughtful album about pro wrestling, but John Darnielle and the Mountain Goats are one of them.  So it is pretty awesome that not only are they releasing a concept album entirely about about pro wrestling, but if the first single “The Legend of Chavo Guerrero” is any indication, they are are doing things right.  References to Al Madril and Red Shoes Duggan in a song that has all of the usual Mountain Goat tendencies is a great start.
