Album Review

"The odds were pretty much against us releasing anything from this show because, when it gets sh*tty outside here in the Northwest, we get sh*tty inside." That's how the liners of Supersuckers singer and official representative Eddie Spaghetti set up Mid-Fi Field Recordings, Vol. 1: Live at the Tractor Tavern, Seattle, Washington, which features seven Suckers songs delivered in tumbling and wrinkled country-rock form. But Spaghetti goes on to marvel at how not-actually-that-bad his band sounded on the tapes from the evening, and fans of the veteran group are used to this sort of irascible self-deprecation, anyway. The '94 anthem "Creepy Jackalope Eye" is reworked as a scraggly bar band version of Steve Earle's own country take on the song; "Doublewide" is better for its newfound Southern rock tendencies and the squawk of David Lipkind's harmonica; and "Killer Weed" — from the '04 Spaghetti solo effort Sauce — is exactly the rowdy, bleary-eyed, and solo-heavy crowd pleaser you'd expect. Another Live at the Tractor Tavern highlight is the "Weed" bookend "Pretty F****d Up," which unfolds at a sawdusted tilt perfect for the drunken two-stepping that undoubtedly broke out during this recording. And of course Spaghetti is your host for the evening, providing wry and rambling song intro commentaries, a get-to-know-the-band session, and a few memorable heckler retorts. The set might have been a bit longer, but other than that there really isn't anything here for Supersuckers devotees to complain about. Mid-Fi Field Recordings, Vol. 1: Live at the Tractor Tavern, Seattle, Washington — not awesome, but never a dull moment, either.

Biography

Formed: 1988 in Tucson, AZ

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Something of an anomaly on the Sub Pop roster, the Supersuckers bore a limited surface resemblance to grunge, but they were a party band at heart, donning cowboy hats and kicking out a gleefully trashy brand of throttling, rockabilly-flavored garage punk. Their lyrics were a raucous, over-the-top celebration of all the attendant evils of rock & roll — sex, booze, drugs, Satan, and whatever other vices the band could think of, all glorified with tongue planted firmly in cheek....
