"Dirt Track Date"
Southern Culture on the Skids,
the fuzz guitar of Link Wray, mix with a touch of Dick Dale surf guitar,
infuse with the ghost of Lynyrd Skynyrd, throw in a Erskine Caldwell paperback,
a few Moon Pies, and a jug of moonshine and you get Southern Culture on
the Skids. Southern Culture on the Skids (or S.C.O.T.S. as loyal fans call
them) has taken white trash rock to the next level with their blend of
truck stop humor, pure rock energy, and a hunger for the finer things in
life (like fried chicken, banana puddling and snack crackers). Dirt
marked a turning point in the band's career when all
the pieces fell into place. Their big tune, "Camel Walk" has appeared on
a few movie soundtracks, but other tracks on the disc should not be overlooked.
There's their hot rod rocker "Voodoo Cadillac," the mondo exotica "Make
Mayan A Hawaiian," the fried chicken inspired "8 Piece Box" and "Fried
Chicken and Gasoline," and of course the title track "Dirt Track Date"
which ends with five minutes of actual dirt track drag race sound. Here's
a picture of the band with the bachelor and company.
