From The Crypt Of Southern Culture On The Skids’ Rick Miller: “Famous Monsters Of Filmland”

Anyone have any idea how long Southern Culture On The Skids has been around? Would you believe since 1983? Time flies. (Clever response: You cannot, they’re too erratic.) The current lineup of SCOTS features Rick Miller (the one constant since its inception) on guitar and vocals, bassist Mary Huff and drummer Dave Hartman. If you haven’t heard what they sound like, an educated guess that included Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Cramps, Tav Falco’s Panther Burns and Man Or Astro-Man? might be pretty close to the bone. The trio’s most recent album, Zombiefied (Kudzu), came out just in time for graves to open so the dead can have one last stagger around the countryside. Miller will be guest editing all week. Read our brand new Q&A with him.

Miller: Famous Monsters and Mad magazines did more to shape my small brain than a whole year of third grade! I used to sneak down to the local smoke-shop newsstand and check out the latest issues of both while my mom thought I was at guitar lessons.
