Country Living: New Adventures in Exotic Pet Ownership

Country Living was a cowpunk band who formed in Garden Grove, California in November 1982. The band enjoyed a strong cult following throughout the 1980s and early 1990s before the tragic spelunking death of lead singer and guitar player Slim Jim Dakota in 1993. Their music has been described as an combination of cowpunk, jangle pop, garage rock, Texas swing and rockabilly.

The band's 1987 album New Adventures in Exotic Pet Ownership is considered a classic in the cowpunk genre. It was named one of the top albums of the 1980s by MTV.com and was used as the soundtrack of the Oscar nominated documentary Slim Chances, which chronicles the life and death of Slim Jim Dakota and his girlfriend, dancer Josie Wolly.
