      with The Hangmen
      Youve heard our name, youve seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. Were probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe were still a mystery to you. Well my friend, thats okay, youre at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.The brand new album, Holdin the Bag, offers a compelling blend of brawny badassery and sensitive songcraft on such memorable originals as the high-lonesome title track, which kicks the album off on a deceptively spooky note. You also get the rousingly twangy anthems High and Outside, Man on a Mission and Jibber-Jabber. Then the album closes on a thoughtful note, with an update of the Hank Williams Jr. standard All My Rowdy Friends (Have Settled Down), with updated lyrics that refer to such Supersuckers contemporaries as Steve Earle and Lemmy Kilminster of Motorhead. (The album sessions also yielded a second cover tune, a spirited reading of the Billy Joe Shaver classic Georgia on a Fast Train, which will be included as a bonus track on Holdin the Bags vinyl edition.)The Supersuckers Eddie on vocals and bass, plus guitarist Marty Chandler and drummer Chris Von Streicher recorded Holdin the Bag in Austin, TX, at Ray Bensons esteemed Bismeaux Studios. They were joined by such kindred spirits as outlaw singer-songwriter Hayes Carll, whos featured on the rollicking hard-luck tale This Life Would Be a Whole Lot Better, and acclaimed alt-country songstress Lydia Loveless, who adds her distinctive voice to the bittersweet I Cant Cry. Also lending their talents are Asleep at the Wheel fiddler Jason Roberts, Butthole Surfers member Jeff Pinkus, noted neo-honky-tonker Jesse Dayton and Willie Nelsons longtime harmonica sidekick Mickey Raphael.
