Drive By Truckers


Recommended Posts

I just um, procured the latest by these guys - "The Dirty South" this past weekend. I was ill-prepared for the onslaught contained within. I first heard of them a couple of years ago, a friend suggested them and said to watch for them, it would only be a matter of time before they hit. Well...... they've hit hard. I had heard a couple of songs on the local public radio station WMNF 88.5 - www.wmnf.org - here in Tampa (always a good sign when they get airplay on non-commercial radio) and liked what I heard so I figured I'd check them out. They play nasty greasy rock n roll with some country overtones - picture a bastard child spawned of Dinosaur Jr and Johnny Cash. I know that's hard to fathom but it's the closest I can come up with. Listen for yourself. The lyrical content is working man's blues - very topical and opinionated. Not for everyone but right up my alley.
