Having been spectators at our open-mic night for some time, "Junkyard Jack" (vocals/guitar) and "Mudslide Steve" (lead/slide guitar) decided they should do something themselves,and so the ChickenShit Blues Band were born. They mix classic blues (Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, etc.) with the occasional forray into 'alt-garage-rock-blues' territory (Velvet Underground, Seasick Steve). Great stuff!
Every now and then something happens at the open-mic night that makes you step back and think "yeah, wow". This is one of those moments. With the ChickenShit Blues Band, and the Shitettes (their very first performance) ... doing the fucking Velvet Underground, for heaven's sake! Gorgeous.
