Album Review

Like most of New Orleans' inhabitants, the members of stoner rock trio Suplecs suffered a slew of personal traumas in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, almost collectively biting the big one in the process. But they resolutely hung on, reunited, rebuilt, and finally emerged to fight another day some five years later, foisting their fourth album, 2010's Mad Oak Redoux, in the process. Not only that, they also proceeded to chronicle their experiences in this latest batch of songs, including, among others, "Stand Alone," "2x4," "Coward," and "FEMA Man," boasting the clever verse "I just thank the good Lord above I got good friends in Austin, Texas." This development is quite the eye-opener for a band previously known for singing obsessively about professional wrestling and getting baked out of their minds. Of course, musically speaking, Suplecs have lost none of their thunderous riffage ("Tried to Build an Engine"), frequently frenzied tempos ("Stepped On"), or their menacing, "whatchu lookin' at" glare ("Switchblade"), but they have broadened into significantly more melodic territory with cuts like "Once Again" and "World's on Fire" while bringing very unexpected alternative rock nuances and hooks to the excellent "In Your Shadow." And for a band whose only sin early in their career was sonic predictability (even though the songwriting itself was always top-shelf), these slight alterations across the board only help open new doors for Suplecs to take their career in the future. Here's hoping they don't have to endure another major natural disaster in order to do so.

Strong and Tasty

Their back and sound great! Best Stoner Rock Around. Touring???

Still rocks hard- Suplecs style!

After such a long break, I was worried what might come from them, and if they may have changed or outgrown their old styles. This album has not left my CD player for 4 days now! It is slightly more refined, and as they may have matured from their previous albums, they lack nothing in giving me what I have hoped would come from this group, even 5 years later. I had heard rumours that they had broken up, and that even they lost all their equipment in the floods and gave up playing...
If you are a Suplecs fan, this is a must get- ASAP! Or if you are a fan of Clutch, Alabama Thunderpussy, Dozer, etc... Give it a try.
So glad the "terrible-trio" is back and rockin- PLEEEEEASE come back to Charlotte, NC! Fat City is gone, but you can always blow out the Milestone Snug Harbor, or Tremont. We will treat you to the "Classic Hospitality!"




Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

New Orleans-based wrestling enthusiasts Suplecs (they're named after a particular takedown trick) formed in the mid-'90s and consist of Durel Yates (guitars/vocals), Danny Nick (bass/vocals), and Andrew Preen (drums). Their year 2000 debut Wrestlin' With My Lady Friend was released shortly before their record company, Man's Ruin, went belly up, but Suplecs carried on undeterred, unleashing their second effort, Sad Songs......
