The Supersuckers "Mid-Fi Field Recordings Volume 1: Live At The Tractor Tavern, Seattle, Washington"

Ah, yes, it's the Supersuckers, y'all! This long-standing punkabilly army has decided to grace the world with "field recordings," and damn, that's a fine idea! This, the first in a hopefully long-running series, captures seven songs from a live set at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle. The band's in damn-fine form, but then again, considering they're one of the best live bands today, that's really not saying all that much. The seven songs are all familar numbers, including classics "Born With a Tail," "Pretty Fucked Up," "Killer Weed" and "Creepy Jackalope Eye." But shit, dig "Alabama, Lousiana or Maybe Tennessee"--if that ain't enough of a convincing factor to go see these boys live, then damn, ain't nothin' gonna. Ah well, if you can't get out to see 'em, just put this record in your stereo and crank the fuck out of it. The only problem? At seven songs, this thing is too damn short--more!
