JEFF WALKER UND DIE FLUFFERS
WELCOME TO CARCASS CUNTRY
Jeff Walker is a grindcore legend of the highest order thanks to his co-founding Carcass. So why the hell has he recorded and released a punkified country album covering tunes by such "drunks" as Hank Williams and Johnny Cash? Simply because he felt like it, and in his words, "if you don't get it, then tough". While it's hard to tell if this album is merely tongue in cheek sarcasm drawn out too far or a bunch of Swedish metal guys locked into a running joke, this 11-track disc definitely will give your attention span a do-si-do for good measure. Best served when loaded, WELCOME TO CARCASS CUNTRY falls somewhere between novelty country disc and outtakes from a Pogues recording session, translating to a cautious yet fun listen.
