Attention Rocket From The Tombs and Dead Boys fans: Here's the first single from Cheetah Chrome's new solo EP

Cheetah Chrome made his name as the guitarist for upstart Cleveland punk acts Rocket From The Tombs and The Dead Boys, but he’s since mellowed a bit. Much like Mekons’ Jon Langford, he’s fallen in to the alt-country arena, having become director of A&R for Plowboy records, a label started by Eddy Arnold’s grandson, Shannon Pollard, and historian Don Cusic. Plowboy’s released a number of records, including a tribute to Arnold recorded at historic RCA Studio B, but will be putting out Chrome’s very own first solo release Oct. 8. Solo is a seven-song EP spliced together from both a 1996 recording session and a 2010 session with Sylvain Sylvain. The A.V. Club has the premiere of one of the tracks, “Rollin’ Voodoo,” below. It’s a little bit twang, a little bit punk, and a whole lot Cheetah Chrome.
