Eddie Spaghetti goes with Bloodshot

Friday, November 12, 2010 – 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 am and always will be a Supersucker, no matter what I do with the rest of my life, you know?," Spaghetti said. "That said, this record is ridiculous. It's so good. 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."

CD reviews for Eddie Spaghetti

The Value of Nothing CD review - The Value of Nothing
If you took Bob Seger and worked him over a while with a wood rasp, then you might get Eddie Spaghetti, metamorphically speaking. While on the subject, his music might best be called contact metamorphism, where Spaghetti's music is the magma being injected into country rock. This isn't music you would play at a church picnic. Spaghetti, aka the lead singer of The Supersuckers, wasn't very happy with the world when he penned Fuckin' With My Head, but his mood lightens - »»»
Sundowner CD review - Sundowner
Toned down and low-key are not words that leap immediately to mind when describing Eddie Spaghetti. In his regular gig as the front man for The Supersuckers, there isn't much call for subtlety. His solo efforts - "Sundowner" is his third - lean more to country than rock, and there's a lot more restraint on display. On an album that consists mainly of covers, he avoids overemphasizing stylistic differences, and instead delivers straightforward versions of songs from Johnny Cash »»»
Old No. 2 CD review - Old No. 2
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 »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
