Little did the world know that when the Supersuckers took the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs out on tour for the first time back in 1999, the leaders of these two infamous punk rock ‘n’ roll acts would remain pals and collaborators for over two decades! The evidence of this wild and rowdy union is all over their debut album Motherfuckin’ Rock ‘n’ Roll, a 10-song splatter-platter of dirty hard rock, chainsaw punk, outlaw country, and catchy hook-laden power-pop earworms by Eddie Spaghetti and Frank Meyer.
“Frank and I met in the before-times,” jokes ‘Suckers founder Spaghetti, “before all this COVID stuff kinda put everything on hold. Ours bands toured together a bunch over the years and we always stayed amigos, occasionally playing on some songs together over the years. But when the Supersuckers had to cancel our European tour in 2020 due to the travel restrictions from COVID, I suddenly had a lot of unexpected time on my hands.”
Initially recorded during COVID when their bands were on break from the road, the first sessions yielded the Spaghetti-penned “Shit’s Fucked” and an updated cover of Tom Petty’s “Jammin’ Me,” both released via Acetate Records in 2020. The politically charged songs found the guys trading lead vocals, as Eddie thumped on bass and Frank ripped on guitars, backed by Cheetahs drummer Mike Sessa.
