– Eddie Spaghetti, best known as the front man of the "punk-and-roll" outfit The Supersuckers, is set to release his third solo record in February, his first for Bloodshot Records.
"Sundowner" features several new Spaghetti original compositions - Never Thought I Would and the title track. The disc drops Feb. 22.

I've never been more proud of anything I've ever done. Toot-toot! Is that my own horn I'm blowing? I guess it is. Well, somebody's gotta do it."

On an album that consists mainly of covers, he avoids overemphasizing stylistic differences, and instead delivers straightforward versions of songs from Johnny Cash ...
Eddie Spaghetti is the leader of The Supersuckers, a rock band with a whole lot of country music in its blood. This solo release is almost completely country, however. Spaghetti's scratchy vocals won't give either George Jones or Merle Haggard a run for their money, but because he sings these 11 songs with complete sincerity, all is forgiven.
There aren't any country standards included here, but you might say everything is done in a country way. The disc opens with Bob Dylan's "Tonight I'll Be ...
