Haymarket Squares, Fast Rattler

[DEMON GRASS] Like an Americana counterpart to the Pogues with a very real chip on their shoulders, Phoenix, Ariz., quintet Haymarket Squares have taken old-school Appalachian folk and bluegrass and infused it with fuck-all puckishness. “I guess I don’t give a shit about giving a shit,” John Luther Norris snarls on one track from the group’s third record, Wild Ruckus, which also includes the requisite song about getting fucked up (“Let’s Get Fucked Up,” as it were), reluctantly falling for a Republican (“Forbidden Love”) and a polka-fied cover of Pink Floyd’s “Hey You” you would be forgiven for mistaking for Weird Al—and that’s a compliment. It’s rowdy, goofy, wise-ass stuff, a welcome infusion of angst and smarm in a genre often too self-serious to have any fun with tradition.
