Southern Culture On The Skids On World Cafe

Dec 7, 2016

Founded in 1983, Southern Culture On The Skids has been touting the virtues of dirt-track racing, Little Debbie pastries and kudzu for over 30 years. The North Carolina band — made up of Rick Miller, Dave Hartman and Mary Huff — plays music that amalgamates rock, funky old soul and country, presented with tongue firmly in cheek. Southern Culture On The Skids' latest album, The Electric Pinecones, is named after an acoustic spin-off project from its past, back when the band sometimes opened for itself. And the name of its label, Kudzu, comes from the creeping vine that's invaded the South. Hear the complete session in the player above.
