Power Of County – See You In Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven

by Woody on September 4, 2008

See You In Rock ‘n’ Roll Heaven by Power of County fires out like a cannon ball with “Ain’t Going Back To Jail.” Lyrically, there’s not a whole lot to the song and the title says it all. This dude ain’t going back to jail. He tells a judge to go fuck himself and he ain’t going back to jail. While the story is simple, the music jams and makes me want to throw empty bourbon bottles against the wall. Power of County are the type of shitkickers that should play behind chicken wire.

Other standouts that make me want to swill bourbon from the bottle include “Love Me In Chains” and “Love Machine.” The boys also vary their sound on songs like “The Ballad Of Charlie Sad,” one of those woeful country tales, and just when you think the disc is wrapping up, Power Of County uncork a truly brilliant tune in “Silver and Gold.”

Still not sold?‚  What if I told you they wore matching homemade leather vests? That’s tough to resist, isn’t it? If you’re a fan of true country music, not the mainstream manufactured garbage that makes you boycott beermakers, then I would immediately make this part of your collection. This is rockin’ outlaw country at its absolute best.

I love the Amish Biker look these boys are throwin’ down. This is just a good and pure country track that reminds you of when country used to be good (and used to be played by ‘outlaws’).

That guy in the front has a washboard around his neck and one of those little horns with a squeeze ball. That’s awesome.
