The Wild
The tree-hugging post-hippies of the ’80s stripped folk music of its bite in a way that surely caused Woody Guthrie to do back flips in his grave. Nobody understands that more than the kids in THE WILD. Such jittery, electric/acoustic folk-punk ballads as "We Will Drive These Warlords Out" andmore...
The tree-hugging post-hippies of the ’80s stripped folk music of its bite in a way that surely caused Woody Guthrie to do back flips in his grave. Nobody understands that more than the kids in THE WILD. Such jittery, electric/acoustic folk-punk ballads as "We Will Drive These Warlords Out" and "We Shall Overcome" are filled with gritty, ideological tales of hardship and determination, performed with fortitude and finesse. www.myspace.com/thewildatl. less...

JEFF EVANS, AKA CHICKENS & PIGS, can keep a room wrapped around his little finger by way of his epic, self-effacing tales of hard luck with happy-go-lucky charm. At each and every performance, listeners chuckle on the edge of their seats and wonder: How much more fun can this get? Evans’ lanky presence and limber strum and bark come across like an unholy hybrid of Keith Richards and Captain Kangaroo. His songs are obsessed with food and animals, and usually cover both in each go-around. The more frantically he plays, the more mistakes he makes. But he rolls with them in the most endearing ways. The ramshackle pace of his songs, coupled with his “aw shucks” rural humor is as compelling as it is hilarious.
