Chip Hanna&The Berlin Three - Chip Hanna&The Berlin Three
Chip Hanna, drummer for punkrock band like U.S. Bombs and One Man Army, always was a Louisianan country boy. He traded his drumkit for a six-string acoustic Martin guitar and teamed up with some members of the German psychobilly band Mad Sin in order to create Chip Hanna & The Berlin Three. And through People Like You Records they deliver us this self-titled debut album filled with country-rock!
 
First I have to make some confessions. I (to be polite) don’t like punk bands like U.S. Bombs and One Man Army at all, Mad Sin on the other hand sounds better. Second I don’t know jack shit about country music besides what I heard on The Dukes Of Hazard basically. But lately I’ve been picking up some country music in my system and it’s quite nice actually. Must be the weather. Chip luckily just comes along at the right time. Because what this album offers is some top-notch life-enjoying cowboy country rock, fit for a barn dance with an astronomical amount of beer.
 
The styles Chip and his friends use go from Americana, bluegrass, honky tonk, rockabilly, to psychobilly, Orange County  and California street punk if I should believe the bio, but I’m not that good in actually tracing down the aspects of those styles in the songs. But I do hear a band that really puts down a steady sound. Chip certainly proves to be a country boy at heart. Rocking drums, a plucking and slapping bass, rattling guitars and a happy howling honky tonk roadhog.
 
Well, if you like country (perhaps from a more punkrock direction) check it out. If you hate the stuff, don’t bother. Simple as that. I dig it though. Perhaps you will too.
