Supersuckers: Get It Together!

Get It Together!
Mid Fi Recordings [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
The Supersuckers have been cranking out high energy rock since their 1992 debut on Sub Pop Records and Get It Together! is their first record of all new material in five years. What the 2008 Supersuckers bring to the table is a maturity in their sound that actually sounds refined and planned out. Some of the bands venom may be gone because I don't necessarily hear any "Coattail Rider" or "Creepy Jackalope Eye" but their experience comes through with some catchy tracks and ultimately shows the Supersuckers can still bring it.

Key Track: "Listen Up"

Band With Similar Fire: Rocket From The Crypt
