Some Truckers

The Drive By Truckers, at home, at the 40 Watt in Athens GA, which is a dive night club that is infamous as the place to go if you want to hear some damned fine music by bands that consider it home. This particular song is "When the Pin Hits The Shell" off of the album Decoration Day. Buy it, or I'll flog you with a wet herring for being a doofus.

  1. Love the Truckers. Their last couple of albums have been so-so, but the early 00's run of Southern Rock Opera, Decoration Day, and Dirty South was brilliant. "Where the Devil Don't Stay" is one of my favorite songs of the decade.

  2. Sorry. Southern fried rock doesn't do it for me.

    And they left out the verse that starts: "Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danvill train."

  3. Jazz, good music is good music, whether it's Southern-fried or not. Just for that, I'll make *sure* to have a Lady GaGa video *just for you* real soon now ;).

  4. There's something about live music in a bar.
