Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants All Hat And No Cattle
Release Date: July 30, 2013
All Hat and No Cattle follows the group's 2010 self-titled debut, which introduced the veteran Foo Fighter Chis Shiflett's skill for writing understated, infectious Americana-influenced rock songs. Firm believers that in order to know where you're going, you've got to know where you've been, Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants recorded these nine definitive honky-tonk covers and one original with a mix of reverence and revelry.
Their playful enthusiasm is palpable throughout the faithful yet fresh interpretations, from the carousing opener 'Guitar Pickin' Man' to the bluesier, doo-wop country of 'Happy Part Of Town' to the apt, barnstorming closer 'Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way?'
