Chicken Snake is the new JERRY TEEL (Honeymoon Killers, Boss Hog, The Chrome Cranks, Knoxville Girls, Little Porkchop, Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers) and PAULINE OWENS-TEEL (Jerry Teel & The Big City Stompers) project.
Raspy, smoke-scorned, dustbowl-distorto slides up barbed-wire frets highlight this Jerry Teel-led moonshine county carnival of souls. Kinda makes you wish Mick Taylor had reversed the pick-up for a load of coal. I’ve always found Teel’s projects interesting. The Honeymoon Killers gave an avalanche of bulk at the White Dot once. I saw Chrome Cranks open for Kim Salmon! But harp-blowing, hiccup power-trio bluesbusters back up Mr. Teel and wife Pauline’s ghoulish chuck-wagon chalky chirps like divine horsemen driven deadwood out for the long haul.
