I'm a fan of just about everything related to the Thermals, and that includes the one-off acoustic pop project of Hutch Harris and Kathy Foster. In fact, I had a copy of Hutch & Kathy before I owned anything by the Thermals. The album has plenty of songs that cover political/personal concerns in a similar way to what the Thermals went on to do on albums like F*ckin' A. "A Rich Nation" is one such song, but the sunny folk-pop style takes a lot of the punch out of a lyric about capitalist-society nihilism, and the handclap-and-harmonica break toward the end doesn't help. But it sounds pretty good anyway.
