Biography

The self-titled debut album from Chris Shiflett & The Dead Peasants shows a new, perhaps unexpected side of the longtime Foo Fighter lead guitarist: his skill at writing slightly dialed-down, infectious Americana-laced rock songs. The album is chock-full of soulful pedal steel- and twang guitar-accented songs steeped in his longtime appreciation of classic country artists (Johnny Cash, ...

3.0 out of 5 stars Something else enjoyable 4 Sep 2010
By The Guy
Format:Audio CD
A different album that pleases in a way that I did not expect. The general style is more of a country rock feel. At times you can hear the sounds that let you know that Chris Shiflett plays more aggresive rock, but at the same time it is unmistakable that there is a country sound coming through. The songs are vibrant and have a good pace to them. No particular song holds sway over another but in whole this is a good album that holds me for the duration. If your looking for somthing different then this is it. Buy it; play it; enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album! 21 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
I got this album a short while ago and was so surprised by the way it sounded. Hearing this you wouldn't think that Chris Shifflet is a member of the Foo Fighters, it sounds completely different and has a large country vibe to it. It's a good album if you are looking for a change, I recommend it for anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chris loves his country 27 Aug 2010
By km - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It probably took guts for the lead guitarist of one of the hardest rocking bands around, with a punk background to boot, to make a country album of all things. But Dave Grohl's shown his own penchant for the occasional country-flavored song with Foo Fighters. And their acoustic "Skin and Bones" concert had Shiflett adding some unexpected country twangs to familiar songs.

Toss in his work on country covers with Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, and maybe it's not such a surprise that he decided to go all-out with a retro country side band, rather than another album with his (equally under-appreciated and under-promoted) punk side band, Jackson United.

But thankfully, his knack for catchy songs translates well here, and he still avoids the modern "chorus early/chorus often" mantra of song structure. Greg Leisz shows that adding pedal steel guitar makes just about any song even better. As someone who's not a fan of country in particular, I may now be hooked.

It opens with a trio of bouncy, infectious tunes. "Get Along" and "Bandaged" go in a few different directions that keep you guessing and smiling. "God Damn" isn't immediately catchy, but has a great wistful, anthemic, evocative quality.

"Burning Lights" is a fun, countrified cover of an otherwise sparse Joe Strummer song. "An Atheists Prayer" is a laid-back, almost soulful, bluesy number. "Baby, Let It Out" is another upbeat song with a false ending that sets up a good ol' rollicking climax.

Like with Shiflett's Jackson United stuff, the only weakness is that his voice can be a bit rough around the edges in a couple spots, but they're made up for by great songwriting that could (and should) fit in on the next Foo album. So while that's still a few months away, I'm glad Shiflett was able to gather up these mellow gems to tide us over until then.

5.0 out of 5 stars County-Punk? Chris Shiflett can do it. 15 July 2010
By E.R. Prest - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chris is in the punk cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, the incredible rock band Foo Fighters, his own punk rock band Jackson United and now has put out a Country-Rock album. He's a great guitarist and singer to boot. Each track is amazing in it's own right, too much for me to explain in this review. If you like his previous musical efforts, try it, you won't be disappointed. It's slower and more relaxed than his other music, but still has his passion and underlying punk roots background for a truly unique record.
