Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

"With a bleating horn section and ferocious guitar playing, the band is a boogie–rock juggernaut that has the guts and the skills to deliver greasy, proto–Stax soul with as much power and conviction as their relentless, riff–driven rockers."

Nashville rock critic,
Ari Surdoval


Chooglin', a 7 Piece band featuring 2 members from Estrus Records' band, The Midnight Evils, and drummer, Shawn Walker from Gay Witch Abortion. (The Evils recorded 2 albums at Austin's Sweatbox and a John Peel Session for the BBC in 2004 before disbanding.)

They are undoubtedly one of the best live bands playing rock and roll today!

Chooglin' has toured a bunch in the US and Europe and has supported such notable acts such as The Reigning Sound, King Khan & BBQ, The Dirtbombs, The Black Lips, Jay Reatard, The Black Diamond Heavies, The Buffalo Killers, Bob Log III, and The Birthday Suits.

They have 3 records out including Sweet Time on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum Records produced by Fat Possum's Bruce Watson and Tom Herbers---who has made records with Low, The Jayhawks and Grant Hart just to name a few.

Forthcoming is a Live record on the comedy label, Stand Up! Records, a split 7" with Alabama band The Dexateens a and a new studio record being produced by The Dexateens' Elliott McPherson in Oct '11.
