Eddie Spaghetti - Extra Sauce (LP)

$ 25.99


Release Date: 02/04/22

Re-issue of 2003 solo record from Supersuckers front man.

In 2003, Motherfuckers Be Trippin' revived the Supersuckers nameplate.
Issued through their own Mid Fi imprint, it riffed and smirked with
renewed zing and estimable sleaze. That air of lovable gracelessness
carries over to Suckers' main man Eddie Spaghetti's first solo effort, a
messy and grinning bucket of covers called Sauce. In his liner notes,
Spaghetti trashes the whole idea of solo records, especially those that
consist solely of covers. But in typical fashion, that doesn't stop him
from doing his own. Sauce features quick and easy, largely acoustic
versions of outlaw country faves from Kris Kristofferson ('Best of all
Possible Worlds') and Willie Nelson (the mirthful and giddy 'Gotta Get
Drunk'). There's also a run through 'Cocaine Blues,' but his isn't
underpinned with terror like Johnny Cash's. Instead, Spaghetti cranks it
out steely and fast, like it was the last song of the middle set in a
Tuesday night dive bar gig. He gets a tad serious -- or at least
heartfelt -- with Steve Earle's 'I Don't Want to Lose You Yet,' but it's
back to a bleary-eyed cross of honky tonkin' and low culture slummin'
for 'Peace in the Valley' (originally by A3): 'Well I got ecstasy/But I
need some company.' That sentiment continues for 'Killer Weed,' the
better of Spaghetti's two originals here. As he does throughout Sauce,
Eddie adopts a sort of deadpan Lee Hazlewood persona for the track -- he
might as well perch a raglan horse head on the lip of a six-foot bong.
Sauce isn't country, and it doesn't rock like his day job. But from end
to end, it drips with the same dastardly good-time juice that defines
the best Supersuckers stuff.
