Don’t skip this one right away if you read that this is cowpunk mixed with glam and blues rock, because Nashville’s VOLK – Eleot Reich (drums / lead vocals) and Chris Lowe (electric guitar / vocals) – make this work really (really!) well. Intense lyrics, rocking twang and honky tonk, awesome powerful vocals. Cooler than The White Stripes, dirtier than AC/DC. The debut full-length album Cashville is out now digitally and on insane colored vinyl LP, including one filled with US currency, through Romanus Records. Play it loud!
“It was another gray day in that city of play // You know them swampies got their heads up their back way // We took our drums and guitar to a damn techno bar // Them kids these days don’t dig swing and sway // Bar man said, excuse me ma’am, can’t bring that crap around // We traded rocknroll for all night DJ’s // I said, Well that’s okay, we don’t mind anyway // You go to hell, we’re going to Lonestar State!”
