How Can You Resist an LP Titled “Mexican Coke”?


Riding the rails, so to speak.

 The name is Denney and The Jets (that’s not a misspelling, no), and it’s the nom du rawk of one Chris Denney (get it now?). He is releasing a record with the frankly awesome title of Mexican Coke via Burger/Limited Fanfare on April 8. Here’s an advance listen via track “Bye Bye Queenie”, and below that is one of the best – admittedly hyperbolic, and quite likely somewhat fabricated – artist bios submitted by a label that we have read in years. Enjoy!

 “For born-and-bred Nashvillian Chris Denney, it all began at age nine; stealing pills from his Grandma’s medicine cabinet, smoking two packs a day and eventually graduating to marijuana by age thirteen. It wasn’t until about five years ago that Denney started channeling his life experiences into vivid tales of what he knows best: sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll. Denney and The Jets’ debut LP, Mexican Coke (out April 8th via Burger Records and Limited Fanfare Records) was recorded and mixed in just five days at The Bomb Shelter in East Nashville on to 2″ tape by Andrija Tokic (producer of Alabama Shakes’ Boys and Girls) and Denney himself with help from friends Clear Plastic Masks (Serpents and Snakes Records and Dine Alone Records) who backed Denney in the studio and co-produced. There’s something for the degenerate in all of us on Mexican Coke. The album explores smokin’, drinkin’, cocaine, youth, rodeo clowns, fucking around, acquittal, the blues, family, being broke, pain pills, hangovers, strength, getting high, addiction, living and dying.”
