Buck Wild & His Cocaine Rangers are riding high these days, roping in audiences with their dark but danceable odes to countrified rock and roll. Sporting vintage cowboy duds and a semi-crazed expression, Buck Wild (né Rex Moser) smokes on the electric guitar, while serial bassist Mike Mayhem (who moonlights as a Ranger when not blowing up the spot with Buzz Bomber and the M-80s) keeps the music thumping along to a lonesome redneck rattle. The Rangers, who appear Saturday, January 26, at the Cricket on the Hill, with the Dead Heaven Cowboys and Woolly Buggers, evoke the blissful, reckless energy of such classic devotionists as the King, Brian Setzer and the Man in Black. If you don't like rousing honky-tonk with a taste of rockabilly, you'd best get up and bar the door, Virginia.
