Editors’ Notes

With essential tracks like “Friday Night,” “The Bottle,” and “Waking Up Drunk” in Spider Bags’ repertoire, the band's creative process seems pretty clear: get hammered, feel bad, write a song. Dan McGhee (of D.C.’s DC Snipers) moved to North Carolina a few years back, perhaps to nurture his latent country-punk sensibilities.

Levy and McGee discovered they shared an enthusiasm for Jimi Hendrix, acoustic blues, and marijuana,...
