Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper - Bo-Day-Shus!!!

Now you know we can't have a southern fried month without including the clown prince's of punkabilly. Mojo and Skid got together in the early 80's and for the remainder of the decade made some beautifully ridiculous music together. This is the duo's 1987 release.

Outbred Inlaws - Tears Run Off Leather

I said at the beginning of this month that we're American by birth. Today we're gonna stretch that to North American. Two good ol' boys (and one good ol' gal) from Toronto put together quite a unique combination of country and punk. All with a damn fine sense of humor as well.

Cocknoose - White Trash Messiahs

Full disclosure, for some unknown reason I wasn't going to include Cocknoose this month. But, 'Harder' brought it up and dammit, they belong just as much as anyone. The pride of Lawrence, Kansas. This is their last full length release and my favorite. Sadly, we lost their great vocalist Commander P.P. Urino in 2013, so I'm guessing there will be no reunion. Bass heavy scum punk, the way yo mama likes it! Git yoself sum!

Conquerer Worm - Ride-On

Now, I gotta be honest with you. I was never familiar with Simon Stokes along the way. But apparently, in certain circles he was/is the shit. And one of those circles has a ring of scum around it. Conquerer Worm is a scum rock supergroup paying tribute to Simon Stokes. and his lengthy career. This is a damned enjoyable release.

Polecat Boogie Revival - Self-Titled

After the initial demise of Hellstomper, lead singer Alan The Goddamn King formed this band of southern gentlemen. A little less "punky-tonk" and a little more "southern boogie". Quite the ode to Black Oak Arkansas, really. And oddly, the initials of the band ended up PBR. I'm sure that was an accident, right?

Hellstomper - The Real Hillbilly Motherfucker

Now it's time to get down and dirty. I mean deep down in the Georgia mud. Hellstomper originally started in 1994. Although laid to rest in 2004 they've been born again in recent years. I believe they call their unique southern sound as 'punky-tonk'. Call it what you want, but I'd make sure to be on their side when the shit starts goin' down on a Saturday night. This is the 2005 re-issue of their 2000 classic. Does anyone happen to have their 2014 Live album?

Hammerlock - Let The Bad Times Roll

Now here's a band I really like. Travis and Liza started Hammerlock in Oakland in 1995. Since then they've consistently blended rock, country and of course punk for some pretty cool tunes. This is their 2009 offering.
