Title - 'Suck It'
Artist - Supersuckers
For those not in the know, Supersuckers are an American rock band known for the incredible, high energy live shows.
Following the relative success of their 1997 foray into country music with the release of Must've Been High, they have also been known to play country shows under various names!
As of July 2012, the members are Eddie Spaghetti on bass guitar and lead vocals, "Metal" Marty Chandler and Dan "Thunder" Bolton on guitars, and Christopher "Chango" Von Streicher on drums.
"We've finally become the band that we've always threatened to be", says singer-bassist Eddie Spaghetti, calling, as ever, from the road.
With the Supersucker odometer clicking on three decades this very year, the self-proclaimed Greatest Rock n' Roll Band in the World is marking the occasion with a loud, resounding Suck It.
Off the blocks, this 12th studio album from the band showcases a ruthless, get-it-done trio that sounds rebuilt from Motorhead parts, with a singer-bassist transmuting Lemmy's mojo to rasp You said to grab it/Just hook or stab it/And now I gotta have it - All of the time!
"Once we tapped into that vibe, we really ran with it", Eddie says of 'All Of The Time', which opens an album he and core 'Suckers Marty Chandler (guitar) and drummer Chris Von Streicher (drums) recorded early this year at Bismeaux Studio in Austin, TX.
The track is pure Supersuckers at their finest and man, come on now, if that's ain't Lemmy then wow, what a tribute of impersonation Eddie brings forth. The so-called "ballad" 'The History of Rock N Roll' is a rocker that's just waiting to burst open at the seams and that's backed by both the mid-tempo 'Dead Inside' and then the speeding train of 'Breaking My Balls.'
Another "ballad" is up in the form of "The Worst Thing Ever,' and that's followed by the thunderous raw punk vibe of 'What's Up (With This Motherfucking Thing?),' before the melodic countrified edge of 'Cold Wet Wind' is upon us.
The rage returns for '(I'm Gonna Choke Myself And Masterbate) 'Til I Die' - a title alone that could possibly win best of the decade - and that's backed by the singalong 'Private Parking Lot.' The album then comes to a close with the early KISS-esque 'Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers.'
