Wood Chickens – Skunk Ape 7″ KITSCH 014

Uncategorized, wood chickens

Our next 7″ release is being announced! WOOD CHICKENS – SKUNK APE will be a 3 song vinyl single. Skunk Ape will be on their debut vinyl LP that will be out on Big Neck Records in the near future, but this supporting single will be backed with two 7″-exclusive tracks! The Wood Chickens have been touring the Midwest and beyond almost non-stop since we released their split cassette and this record reflects that and their current lineup–they are road tight, and ho-in’ down at turbo speeds, like Hank Hill’s riding lawnmower on nitro-boosters. Recorded by Bobby Hussy. COMING SOON!!!

WOOD CHICKENS / PAINT SPLIT CASSETTE

cassette

HI! THERE IS EVEN MORE IN THE WORKS. THIS WILL BE VERY SOON.

I’m very happy to announce this cassette featuring one of my favorite new Madison bands and one of my old favorites.

First up is Wood Chickens. Griffin Pett and Alex Reilly’s cow punk ho down punk group. Sometimes they have a drummer. Sometimes they are acoustic. Sometimes they have a guy slamming the stump fiddle. They march to their own stump fiddle and don’t really care what you think about it. That’s what I like. They draw a lot of comparisons to the Dead Milkmen and The Meat Puppets. And that’s a good thing in my book. Quirky suburban goofball punk that I crave and identify with… Includes a cover of Paint’s “Stingray” as a peace offering…  There’s 6 or so dudes here and 16 minutes of tape, I’m glad they are all getting along.

Wood Chickens / Paint SPLIT CS

On the flipside is three songs from Madison power garage pop punkers, Paint. Last year they recorded a batch of 10 or so songs with garage rock turkmeister, Bobby Hussy. Most of them found their way on their “Wet Paint” EP. But perhaps, they saved their best for last. This side features live fan favorite, “House Arrest,” written, yes… while under house arrest. To-hell-and-back singer/bass player, Joe Darcy, then finishes off the split by torching the whole damn coop to ashes with “Southern Cut.”

Out very soon.
