Espanola's The Imperial Rooster play an out there mix of all acoustic country, folk, blues, & rock 'n' roll that can only be described as GONZO ROOTS MUSIC. If Nick Cave and Tom Waits had a baby together and that baby covered Johnny Cash songs with the Violent Femmes backing him up but used lyrics written by Hunter S Thompson and William Burroughs then it might sound a little bit like the Rooster. 

The Imperial Rooster is: Cootie LeRoux - vox, guitar, mandolin. Nat King Kong - vox, hobophone. T. Skilly McGee - vox, standup bass, fiddle, guitar. Khorn Sirrup - banjo, slide guitar. Ms. Lulu Lotus Cornblossom - vox, accordion. Dusty Vinyl - drums
