Thanks for asking this. I immediately hit google after hearing that song but:
Your search - "bloody chicken sound" - did not match any documents.

I actually ran from my bedroom down to the living room where my husband was watching it as soon as I heard that music! I was kind of mesmerized by it. I looked it up on the Soprano forum at IMDB and they say it's Chicken Town by John Cooper Clarke.

Also known as Evidently Chicken Town, if it is the song. I'm d/ling from Soulseek right now.

John Cooper Clarke is a Mancunian poet who made four albums in the early postpunk era (late 70s/early 80s), was Nico's longtime boyfriend up to her death, as well as a fellow junkie, but a brilliant, lovely and funny fellow. His albums are spotty, but quite funny. "Evidently Chickentown" is a bit of a peak, but there are a few others equally as good by him. His backing band included producer Martin Hannett (Joy Division, Buzzcocks and many others) and various people from the Buzzcocks/Blue Orchids 'scene.'

I'm a big fan, and I was delighted to see the song pop up on the Sopranos.

I'm taking this as a sign from g-d that JCC needs to go on my MeFi swap mix. I was hedging but now I think it's clear.

I always understood that the song was John's version of an old Army song - you can certainly find very similar lyrics that predate his recording.
One bit of unusual JCC I thoroughly recommend is his collaboration with Suns of Arqa, where he does this kind of Biblical voice-over to Wadada's mad music. Gold.
