... a party band at heart, donning cowboy hats and kicking out a gleefully trashy brand of throttling, rockabilly-flavored garage punk. Their lyrics are a celebration of all the attendant evils of rock & roll -- sex, booze, drugs, Satan, and whatever other vices one may have. Often with temporary detour into hardcore honky tonk, making them The Greatest Rock-n-Roll Band in The World!!
“You’ve heard our name, you’ve seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. We’re probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe we’re still a mystery to you. Well my friend, that’s okay, you’re at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.
And the next time you see the ‘Supersuckers’ name, whether it’s in the record store, online somewhere, or on the marquee at your local rock club, know that there’s some quality, honest, ass-kicking, hard working individuals behind it all trying to make your life a little better through the “Evil Powers Of Rock-n-Roll” (and the occasional detour into the country music, of course) and we’d love nothing better than to have you there with us as! Just remember to wear clean underwear, ‘cuz we’re gonna rock the pants right off of you!”
– Eddie Spaghetti, The Supersuckers
The Foul English
They call it "Dadcore", though they are slightly older family men, these Calgary guys haven't lost their sneer, swagger, and aggression as they blaze through their mix of classic 70s English punk and early 80s American hardcore.The Foul English's strong songwriting tells the tales of four Dads who refuse to let age or fatherhood slow them down, in a way that all "Rippers", young and old, can relate. Just like how the Minutemen used to end their shows early in the evening so that their blue-collar audience could get to work the next day, The Foul English have real shit to deal with, which is the whole reason we have punk rock in the first place. -
