New EP: HONK || Grand Opening

You probably didn’t know you need “trash can country” in your life, but UK six-piece HONK’s debut EP Grand Opening really makes this day a whole lot more fun. Chip Smitten (vocals, harmonica), Randy ‘Steel’ Harrison (lap steel, vocals), Yeehaw aka Calamity Hane (keys and vocals), The Saint (bass), Woody (guitar, vocals) and The Real Red Foley (drums) play ramshackle country with a punk feel, raw en lo-fi but swinging music that makes you happy. The titles of their first six songs that you hear here – 147 Ways To Say Howdy, Let The Dog See The Rabbit, Lazy River Blues, I’ve Made My Bed (But I’m Heading Out The Door), Rat Party and Sad Wimpy Dreams – not only speak volumes about their lifestyle and environment, but also give a good indication of what you can expect in terms of tunes. Who let the geese out?

Grand Opening is out now digitally and on cassette trough Fuzzkill Records.
