Biography

Long the bards of downward mobility, Southern Culture on the Skids have always embodied a sleazy, raucous, good-natured, good-time take on the culture of the South. Recently described by Dwight Yoakam (in Filter) as "really on the outside, like Dick Dale meets Hank Thompson," SCOTS have mixed high and low culture for decades, endlessly touring, serving up moonshine martinis and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bag of Stale Fritos and alot of Mosquitos... January 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Makin' love...ridin' a bike...throwin' a football thru a
rubber tire swing. You do it once-you can do it a million times
over. Same for the SCOTS-still making that tried and true
psych/voodoobilly/surf music since day one, now honed down
and as sharp as a farmer's chicken decapitatin' hatchet. Where
else can you get a peach colored leisure suit and a pair of
Florsheim boots in the same ditty? Oh yeah...and nobody can play
the Danelectro like Rick Miller. Great production, even better
songs. While listenin, you can "let yer dog run he'll be back when he's done...chasin' those critters away." And bassist Mary
Huff's standout "Just How Lonely" will send shivers down any
Patsy Cline fan's spine. Great music, excellent lyrics...not a
dud in the lot. Get yer 8-piece box of fried chicken, a case of
Dixie blackened voodoo beer, prop up yer feet, let out a few
"YEEHA'S", sit back and enjoy...for this is The Real McCoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars great as always November 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The SCOTS are a great original band that fills a little niche noone seems to want to touch. This is rockabilly at it's best. To give you an idea they sound like a cross between Hank Jr/B52s/Blasters/CCR. At first listen people always look at ya like you have not 2 but 3 heads. Play it again and you notice they're bobbing their heads and smiling. One more time and they're hooked. It's just really good-time music. Never fails to get me in a good mood.
Sounds like they put some horn in this one to get a little change in there. Good to hear Mary get a few more lead vocals. It makes for such a great variety when you have two lead singers. If your the type that sticks strickly to country or rock or whatever, this probably won't tickle your fancy although this is probably the most "normal" sounding record they have.
Don't write these folks off as a parody or gimmick. They are extremely talented. If you doubt me check out their live show. My God can Rick jam. He flat out smokes on a guitar. Man they can get a crowd pumped up.
I think they could release Just How Lonely on the radio and it could be a hit for them.
Plastic Seat Sweet, Dirt Track Date, and Ditch Diggin' are great cds if you decide you like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! A Southern Rock Must-Have! May 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
SCOTS, faves of party-goers for years, have topped themselves with "LU&LD." The band that has often suffered from not living up to the high expectations they generate has created a fully articulated, well-crafted album chock full of polished efforts.
SCOTS, true to its roots, makes party albums. Virtually every song in their repertoire is suited for Saturday night in Chapel Hill, North Carolina -- a night of beer and dancing following a day of BBQ pork. Without losing their raw edge or their insane sense of humor, SCOTS has put a bit of elbow grease into this album, and the results shine.
The title track is probably the best known tune on the album, if only due to its clever use in the "Miss Congeniality" soundtrack. And it's a well-done piece of work, complete with the SCOTS' trademark tongue in cheek. But it gets some worthy challenges as top song from "King of the Mountain," "Cheap Hotels," and "Just How Lonely." "I Learned to Dance in Mississippi" is sure to pack any dance floor, as is their version of "Pass the Hatchet." "Hitting on Nothing" is a chick anthem if there every was one, and "Drunk and Lonesome (Again)" is a sure-fire singalong at many a late-night fraternity house.
One of the premier good-time rock bands, SCOTS set a new standard for themselves with this effort. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars It will make you want to dance. November 30, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
How can you not like an album that contains a line like,"It's got a cinder block wall so you can't be seen when your walking out naked to the ice machine?" That's from "Cheap Motel", and it's just one of several tunes with a rockin',foot-stompin' beat and lines that you can't forget. The first time I heard this album I wanted to pull the car over, get out on the shoulder,and fast dance. It's funny, and the guitar work is great. "Just How Lonely" is a great single the way its done. This group is not too well known in Texas, but they should make their presence known, and soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars SCOTS STILL RULE ON LATEST CD November 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The latest release by the Skids shows they are still the kings of the rocking/grooving/blues/country thang they do. My favorites on the latest are Pass the Hatchet, Drunk and Lonesome Again, Just How Lonely, I Learned to Dance in Mississippi, Haw River Stomp, and the updated King of the Mountain ( long time favorite ). If you're still not convinced on how much the Skids rule, just check 'em out in person the next time they come near your town. They'll get ya grooving and give you some fried chicken and banana puddin to keep you satisfied. I only wish I could play like Rick can play those 6 and 12 strings.

5.0 out of 5 stars SCOTS in Memphis March 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD rivals Dirt Track Date for the best of SCOTS. Saw them in Memphis and they were rockin as usual. a note to Patrick above: SCOTS is just getting better. Get a clue man.
These guys should get some air play with a couple of these tunes. "Just how Lonley" could be a crossover hit if radio stations would wake up.
I look forward to the next trip SCOTS makes to the area cause the chicken and rock will be flyin.
