Mr. Lewis and the Funeral 5 play the Chicken Ranch - from YouTube.com

The bottom line: **1/2

This Austin, Texas, quintet’s morose, minor-key vaudevillian tunes aren’t the best we’ve ever heard, but its occasionally catchy, morbid riffs—not to mention Mr. Lewis’ unique, if somewhat irritating vocals—are interesting enough. If you’re looking to bury a corpse in the dead of night somewhere near Laughlin, there are far worse soundtracks.
