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 ...

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This is a raspberry swirl in a bran-muffin world: bad for you but too good to pass up. On their sixth album, Southern Culture on the Skids offer a tour of white-trash, Americana, hillbilly funk, B-movie instrumentals, road-kill rock--all without leaving their customized Laz-E-Boy. Southern Culture guitarist Rick Miller, bassist Mary Huff, and drummer Dave Hartman genuinely love this music, even as they mock its black-velvet trappings. The highest low points: "Banana Puddin,'" an ode to day-old desserts, and "Carve That Possum," an Uncle Dave Macon cover that sounds like an in-bred cousin of the blues. When Southern Culture move into the neighborhood, you can bet property values will plummet in reverse ratio to the elevation of your mood. --Keith Moerer

Banana Puddin is so funny!
Ellen Gardner
This album has it all; the quirky lyrics, funky back beats and scathing instrumentals.
E. Sherman
They make a very fun evening!

... and I am one of those people: I am southern, I am educated, and I can appreciate the irony and humor (and culture!) that makes this album a real gem. However, even if you match that description, this album may not be for you. The musicians' talents are unquestionably solid. The lyrics are well constructed, and inventive. The sound of the album itself is rich and clear and loud. Their hillbilly rock sound is all at once real, energetic and VERY kitch, and yet can stand apart from the irony to be judged strictly on the merits of the music. I can't say enough good things about this particular album, but I can certainly understand why it wouldn't be for everyone. Those whose tastes run toward either the Top 40 set, or those whose tastes have become so cultured as to not appreciate a good chaotic riot every once in a while, I strongly suggest saving your money.

While traveling thru the wilds of the Southwest (Plenty of country funk to go around) I found myself drifting into a road slumber -- that is until I took a hit of SCOTS. The little woman and me was flyin' with strains of "Banana Pudding" emulatin' outta the winders of the ol' mini-van. A Rockin' good time was had by all (including the cows we passed on the way!) SCOTS, when you gonna be passing Corpus Christi way?

SCOTS is a great band; sort of the red-headed mutant stepchild of the B-52's, Jason and the Scorchers, and some surf guitar bands. Their carry their shtick through the roof (including lobbing fried chicken out to the audience during live gigs), and it carries well on this CD.
My favorite tracks are "Shotgun" (great riffs), "Earthmover" (love the harmony), "Banana Puddin'" (catchy as hell), "Love-A-Rama" (over the top; if it won't make you want to dance, nuthin' will).
It's a fun, catchy album. I think "House of Bamboo" doesn't quite fit with the rest of the songs, but what can you do? This is a good party album.

Each song is unique and equally catchy. I disagree with the earlier review that felt "House of Bamboo" was out of place. Each song on this album is different and Bamboo is just another example of this. I heard the CD while searching through the used CD section in a MINNESOTA store. I went to the counter and told them to take it out of the player because I was taking it home. I'm as far north as it gets in the lower 48 and I am now a Southern Culture addict!

I was introduced to this band while visiting college friends in San Francisco who took me to see them! WOW were they great! Mary is a power goddess in everyway! Naturally I bought the CD and it is a party constant ALL YEAR ROUND! It also was among one of the many hit discs at my best friends bacelorette party! Banana Puddin is so funny! Do yourself a favor and get this CD!

SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS-PLASTIC SEAT SWEAT: Boasting one of the best band names ever, SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS is what you get when you dump CREEDENCE, JOHNNY CASH, THE B52S, JAMES BURTON, THE CRAMPS, WANDA JACKSON and TONY JOE WHITE into a blender and hit "liquify". Creature Feature flicks, kudzu, seedy moonshine runners, go-go gals, self-inked tattoos, muscle cars, and greasy junk food all figure prominently in SCOTS' plug in cheek, redneckin'-rockin'-rollin' outlook on life. Good ole boy guitar slinger/singer RICK MILLER boasts an arsenal of licks that cross pollinates power chord pioneer (and fellow North Carolinan) LINK WRAY with surf rocker DICK DALE on DEJA VAROOM, 40 MILES TO VEGAS, and the slippery groover BANANA PUDDIN'. Wigged out bassist MARY HUFF brings pronounced sex kitten kitsch to her lead vocal turns on LOVE-A-RAMA and titillatin' tiki lounge oldie HOUSE OF BAMBOO, while beatkeeper DAVE HARTMAN locks into a sawdust covered dance floor groove that decimates every number. Three cool cats far too good to be considered merely a trailer park parody, SCOTS bring a whole lotta COUNTRY FUNK to the pig party, bubba.

RATING: FOUR CHAWS

I thought Dirt Track Date was the most innovative, exciting cd I'd heard until Plastic Seat Sweat. The coolest thing about these guys is that they play their music their way and they ROCK! I challenge you to listen and try to put this band into a category. What kind of music does SCOTS play? SCOTS!
