notes from their myspace site:
The Chicken Chokers lead the beat.
Their signature sound combines a pounding 4-man rhythm string section, ever-crazed fiddling, infamous 'air-raid siren' vocals, and the hallmark Chicken Choker Big Boy Chorus. Throughout the 80's the Chokers entertained many, influenced a select few, and recorded 2 albums for Rounder Records before exploding in all musical directions.
A recent 20 year reunion revealed that the Choker Drive survived the explosion. Combining the unvarnished, primitive energy of the early years with mementos from 5 separate musical journeys, the band sounds better than ever, still inspiring amateur dancers and professional revelers to higher states of consciousness.
