Poor Little Critter on the Road is the debut album from X side project The Knitters, Poor Little Critter on the Road contains original compositions and covers of songs by X as well as established Country music performers. While still fast and loud, with raw punk guitars, the album displayed evolving country leanings; the album was influenced by the death of Cervenka's elder sister Mirielle in a 1980 car accident. Three songs on the album all directly related to the tragedy. A fourth, a high-speed version of Al Dubin and Joe Burke's "Dancing with Tears in My Eyes", years indirectly attributed to Cervenka's mournful state of mind; the stark black-and-white cover art and title were a reflection of the somber mood of the band during this time.

No longer struggling to incorporate their love of roots musics into their own hard rock sound, X gave over to the acoustic project Poor Little Critter on the Road with songs like "Someone Like You" and "Cryin' But My Tears Are Far Away. John Doe's version of Merle Haggard's "Silver Wings" may be the definitive version, and the previously recorded "The New World" and "Love Shack" sound wonderful in this spare context - think the Carter Family.
