SUPERSUCKERS
Motherfuckers Be Trippin'
Mid-Fi Recordings

Long before Nashville Pussy were sending their cat scratch fever up the spines of the libido-driven masses, Supersuckers were creating the blueprint for a rock 'n' roll punk-abilly as it's meant to be, as infectious as it is obnoxious. On "Motherfuckers Be Trippin", their 15 years of mayhem are concisely translated into 12 soon-to-be classics clocking in at just over 33 minutes. Opening cut "Rock-N-Roll Records (Aint Sellin' this Year)" is an anthem for everyone who's sick of the corporate crap spraying through the fan, "Pretty Fucked Up" captures the quartet's sleek design and banter as its best, offering "she used to be pretty, now she's pretty fucked up," and "A Good Night For Drinkin" brings the whole picture into alcohol-enhanced focus. If you're looking for a rock 'n' roll hellride through the sawdust-covered clubs that even Nickelback are too pretty to be allowed into, saddle up for a trip alongside the Supersuckers...And hold on tight.
