The Supersuckers took the Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs out on tour for the first time back in 1999 and the leaders of these two infamous punk rock ‘n’ roll acts have remained 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. Our 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.”
Once the album was completed, the guys set out to pick a single a shoot a promo clip. Stitched Sound is proud to premiere the music video for the first single “I Think It Sucks (And I Don’t Like It)”, directed by Meyer, an award-winning film and TV director who also directed the “Jammin’ Me” video. The video was shot at The Good Bar & Eatery in Long Beach and features the ladies of local dance troop Booty Burlesque.
“We wanted to make a video where the ladies turn the tables on the guys,” says Meyer. “These gals are just trying to run a bar and serve folks their food and drink, but all the obnoxious dudes are just relentlessly hitting on them and being jerks. One by one, the ladies get the one-over the lunkhead guys and by the end are happily taking shots while counting their tips and stacking their loot.”
Motherfuckin’ Rock ‘n’ Roll will be released October 12 via Josie’s Cotton’s Kitten Robot Records. “I Think It Sucks (And I Don’t Like It),” hit the radio on September 21. With the concert scene opening back up, both the Supersuckers and Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs will be hitting the road in 2021 and beyond, including some Cali dates together (Sept 17 Alex’s Bar in Long Beach & Sept 18 SoCal Hoedown Festival in San Pedro), which follows a series of acoustic dates Spaghetti & Frank played throughout the summer. More live dates, music videos, singles and general bad-assery coming soon. You can connect with Spaghetti & Frank on Instagram. You can connect with Kitten Robot Records HERE.
