One of rock’s best-kept secrets — we kid you not — is a little ole outfit from Seattle by way of Tucson called The Supersuckers, who’ve been furiously chugging away at their crowd-pleasing brand of meat-and-potatoes anthems since 1988.
Ask anybody who’s ever caught one of their fire-and-brimstone performances — energy-wise, they’re right up there with The Reverend Horton Heat. And while they may be on temporary hiatus right now, that hasn’t kept cowboy-hatted frontman Eddie Spaghetti from staying busy — on Feb. 15, he returns with “Sundowner” on Bloodshot, his third solo set.
And while the usually punk/garage-leaning Supersuckers have playfully toyed with other genres like country, on “Sundowner” Spaghetti delves deeper into the obscure classics, surfacing with gems like Del Reeves’ “Girl On The Billboard,” The Dwarves’ “Everybody’s Girl” and “Jesus Never Lived On Mars” by the Lee Harvey Oswald Band. Also chipping in on the sessions are Supersuckers alums Scott Churilla and Metal Marty Chandler, and Spaghetti even worked his son Quattro into the mix.
