Southern Culture On The Skids - Mojo Boxdotdotdot
artworkAs always, the new Southern Culture On The Skids CD is with instros in tow, and way cool swamp rockin' vocals. They've been doing it since - what - the early nineties? Damn! I'd love to host an all instro set from this band at KFJC!
Picks: The Wet Spot, The Sweet Spot

Track by Track Review


The Wet Spot dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

"The Wet Spot" rips with surf and grumble, and shredder's melody line. An excellent return to the often surfy roots of Southern Culture On The Skids. Tuff drums, high energy, spunky drive. On occasion, it's a little Russian sounding. Great reverb, vibrato shimmer, and a great surf beat! This is not the Halibuts' song.

The Sweet Spot dotdotdot
Near Surf (Instrumental)

Leaning long and low on a warbly guitar line and exotic percussion, "The Sweet Spot" whines like an Hawaiian vacation without Tropicana®. Suave and silky in a warped kinda way, with a semi Japanese sound.
