The Country Dark started their career playing minimalistic "murder-country" music crammed with sleazy stories about psycho killer scumbags, sexually overloaded weirdos and perverted alien abductors from outer space. Nowadays their repertoire leans more and more towards wild trash rock'n'roll and mutated garage rock aesthetics. But the very essence, the true spirit of "goneness" is still the same and perhaps even stronger than ever before.
- In early days of The Country Dark our stuff was like 80% of country and 20% of rock'n'roll. Now it's really quite opposite. This new record is primarily a rock'n'roll album but there's still couple of psychotic country tunes there, says TCD's lead singer Mika Sonninen.
Hypnic Jerk, ten song blast of living and breathing modern roots music that SHALL rock like a bullfrog in the moruga chili sauce. So all you boils and ghouls, put on your dancing shoes, drink a bottle of your favorite booze and listen to the ominous beat of The Country Dark.Personel:
