News on Supersuckers, Paul Kelly, Ween
Seattle-based, Texas-raised country punks the Supersuckers will on March 12 release "Must've Been Live," the first concert album of the group's decade-plus career. The recording of the band's infrequent country concert sets "is a ramblin', gamblin', good-time-drinkin', roadhouse rumblin', party-time country hoo-haw recorded in Dallas, Austin, and San Diego," according to lead vocalist, Eddie Spaghetti. "'Must've Been Live' is 19 tracks and almost 70 minutes worth of pure bootleg dynamite."
The set, to be released on the band's own Mid-Fi Recordings, features guest vocals by Amy Nelson (daughter of country icon Willie Nelson) on the song "Hungover Together," as well as an appearance by Black Crowes guitarist Audley Freed. The group plans to support the album, which can be pre-ordered on CD or double-LP vinyl through the band's official Web site, with a spring U.S. tour.
