"We got booked for a couple of festivals in Norway," Spaghetti said of the dates up north. "It was great. It was super-freaky with the sun up all the time. I had never seen that before. You don't realize you're tired for the longest time because the sun's still up and you're not thinking about it, until you're tired. And then you realize it's 1 in the morning." The Supersuckers will be at Duffy's in Lincoln Tuesday, Sept. 13. It's one in a short string of stops as the band makes its way from a Canadian show opening for Pearl Jam to Farm Aid in Chicago.
After Farm Aid, The Supersuckers will re-enter the studio to work on
the follow-up to 2003's Motherfuckers Be Trippin'. "We've probably
got about eight songs that we've been playing and another gob in people's
pockets," Spaghetti said of the new material,
Those with a jones for Spaghetti will get another taste of his countrified
side with his second solo album, Old No. 2, slated for release in October.
A compilation of covers and original material, No. 2 has a richer sound
than its predecessor, 2004's The Sauce.
The album also features a collaboration with Spaghetti's 4-year-old
son, Eddie the Fourth, also known as Quattro. It's a goofy cover of
Aerosmith's "Sick as a Dog," with Quattro belting out lyrics
over a backbeat. "I was just goofing off with my kid," he
said with a chuckle when asked about the song. "We'll dork around
on the computer with beats and stuff. This one just sort of happened
with my son yelling the lyrics into the computer."
