Headless hodads driving Chevy Nomads

The southern culture that the original Southern Culture On The Skids sang about was very different from the southern culture that the later lineup celebrated. The trio is from a trailer park and plays songs about stock car racing. The original quartet lived in a shack in the middle of a swamp and played songs about love in other dimensions. They did not sing about food or wrestlers.

The band did one EP and an LP on their own Lloyd Street Records. Neither one is really great but there are some really good songs. Unfortunately, none of the old songs get played by the current trio. I did talk them into playing this song one night a long time ago. It’s still one of my favorite Southern Culture On The Skids songs.

Rick Miller is the only constant between the two lineups. The original singer and rhythm section started a band called Stan Lewis & The Rocking Revelers that still plays occasional shows.

Thanks so much for the old Southern Culture on the Skids songs! I've been looking everywhere for these!
