“FUCK. PICKING. COTTON.”
The 1865 are a punk rock supergroup founded by scene legends Chuck Treece (McRad), Sacha Jenkins (The White Mandingos) and Carolyn “Honeychild” Coleman (Apollo Heights). If you don’t know those bands already, go take a quick spin through their collected discographies and then come back. We’ll wait.
OK, we good? Great. Each song by The 1865 explores life post Emancipation in the shadow of the Confederacy, tracing bold lines back to the roots of modern ills. Singer Carolyn Coleman belts out a song of revenge and hope over some classic punk riffage. Blunt, pounding and in your face, this song is straight up “Buckshot.”
The 1865’s full length Don’t Tread On We is out January 25th. Stream “Buckshot” here.
