Album Review

According to Eddie Spaghetti's liner notes, the Paid EP will the first in a series of short form releases leading up to a "fully realized" Supersuckers album, and with obvious pride he announces, "this is as good as we've ever been." While Spaghetti's self-congratulation may be a bit premature or overstated, the truth is that Paid does offer up three top-shelf new tunes from the boys; the title track is a strong working man's anthem, "Breaking Honey's Heart" is yet another well-told tale of a defective relationship, and "I Like It All, Man" is a celebration of the regular guy decadence that's long been the group's stock in trade. Dan "Thunder" Bolton and new recruit Rontrose Heathman are a high-octane guitar combination, Spaghetti is in fine voice and his bass work is exemplary, and Mike Musberger's drumming fits these guys like a glove. The re-recordings of "Roadworn and Weary" and "Creepy Jackalope Eye" don't add that much to the proceedings, but they're fun, and they cover Steve Earle's "Here I Am" with muscle and smarts. Is this a preview of the album that will replace La Mano Cornuda or The Sacrilicious Sounds of the Supersuckers as their greatest achievement? That's anyone's guess, but Paid shows that the Supersuckers are in great shape and aiming high, so maybe they've got that target in their sights after all.

Customer Reviews

Excellent EP!

I can't wait for full-length album after hearing this. This EP is a natural progression for Supersuckers mixing Rock and Roll with a countrified flavor. "Paid", "Breaking Honey's Heart", and "I Like it All, Man", are as good as anything the Supersuckers have written. It's also the best production of any Suckers music.If you ever get a chance to see them live, do so! Thanks for the signed copy of this EP, Eddie!

Supersuckers know how to "Bring It!"

The new Supersuckers EP "Paid" is a great teaser for what's coming to us from this great rock band. If you like high energy rock with some countrified edge to it..... this CD is for you. My personal favorite on this EP is the title track "Paid" which is a great rock song with some sweet riffage from Dan "Thunder" Bolton and some searing guitar licks from Rontrose. I'm not telling any Supersucker fans anything they don't allready know, but if you are new to this band, you gotta give em' a try! Thanks guys for another winner!

Hit or Miss

I bought this cd at a concert where they opened for Social Distortion. I thought this cdwas hit or miss. All the songs I either really liked or didn't care for. Luckily the ones I like are good enough to give this four stars. I really liked "Breaking Honey's Heart" and "Here I Am". "Roadworn & Weary" is pretty good too.

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....
