The Chicken Chokers

Biography

The Poultry Chokers were an old-timey string music group through the Boston area who intersected their roots influences with reggae, punk, and rap. Fiddler Chad Crumm and multi-instrumentalists Paul Strother, Taylor Smith, and Jim Reidy released two albums on Rounder, 1987’s Take Your Radio and Aged Period Music in 1990. However when Crumm departed for NEW YORK, the group fizzled. The rest of the Chokers continued to create Primitive Characters, a far more tradition-oriented fiddle music group. As well as fiddler Sandy Stark, the music group released The Leavin’s in 1997. Nevertheless, PC fizzled as well, because the rigid music structure didn’t enable the type of creativeness Strother, Smith, and Reidy craved. This resulted in the forming of Twang with bassist Robbie Phillips. Twang’s debut, Second Slam, made an appearance in 2000.
