W/Grindhouse, Batz, more to be announced

A party band at heart, donning cowboy hats and kicking out a gleefully trashy brand of throttling, rockabilly-flavored garage punk. Supersuckers lyrics are raucous, over-the-top celebration of all the attendant evils of rock & roll - sex, booze, drugs, Satan, and whatever other vices the band could think of, all glorified with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Save for an abrupt and temporary detour into hardcore honky tonk, their approach stayed relatively consistent through the 90s, as did their quality control. With special guests Grindhouse & more to be announced!
