Wood Chickens - Countrycide

Countrycide, indeed! Mix fast-paced garage, punk, and hillbilly country music and you’ve got Wood Chickens. What San Francisco’s Polkacide did for polka music, Wood Chickens are doing for country music. Never fear, though, this isn’t the Nashville sound or the Grand Ol’ Opry. This is fucking hardcore punk music with lots of backwoods twang. I never would have thought this as a natural combination, but I guess in Wisconsin the cheese does weird things to your brain and it makes you come up with brilliant ideas like this. Of course it’s all tongue in cheek, but it’s quite convincing. Not everything is countrified, though. “King of Siam” is an awesome surf throwback to the 60s, and “Bones” is a breakneck paced garage track. “Satan’s Right Hand” has a Cajun sort of sound, while “Song for Flightless Birds” is a raging hardcore punk track right out of the 80s. It’s a crazy mash-up of genres here, but it works really well.

Great Review from Razorcake on the Wood Chickens LP - Countrycide. Winner, winner, Chicken dinner!

WOOD CHICKENS: Countrycide: LP

The cowpunk genre is dangerous territory for me in that I’m unfamiliar with the roots and am quite indifferent to country music entirely (from Johnny Cash to Merle Haggard to Garth Brooks: not fucking sorry). Wood Chickens are definitely doing the cowpunk thing—right down to the cow skull on the cover—but songs like “Angie Hosh,” “Hex on Me,” and “Dyin’ on the Vine” are straight-up hardcore punk not unlike Everything Falls Apart-era Hüskers. “Flesh ‘N’ Blood” is a very Minutemen-esque song that also rules pretty hard. I was almost ready to dismiss this as forgettable alt-country (the Refreshments, et cetera) or even as Flogging Molly without the fiddles and accordion, but I’m really glad I gave this a closer look because there’s so many more layers to this record than just that. Winner, winner, chicken dinner! –Juan Espinosa
