ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Introduction...
The highway: you know, that striped concrete abomination between roadkill and chugged beer bottles, leading from the middle of nowhere to everywhere. Well, The Cooters are on it. They're on it more than other bands because they're from Mississippi, where rock and roll begins and ends. They're not from California, not New York City, not even Nashville, but from Mississippi, where you have to drive to make ends meet. These boys are used to drivin' long hours and workin real hard to get their music to the people.

The Cooters run the gamut of rock and roll styles; playing everything from punk to metal, making pit stops at all points in between and beyond. They've got your standard rock trio format (Raw on guitars and vocals, Neuter on bass and vocals, and Judas on drums and vocals), but there's not a damn thing else standard about 'em. They make music like it's meant to be heard: loud and proud with blood and sweat to burn.

They've been tearin' up the South nearly ten years now, letting the musical fads come and go, while stickin' to their metal guns and holdin' fast to their punk roots. They've got legions of fans to show for it and they're always up for makin' new ones. The Cooters will be comin' to see you real soon...

Manifesto...
"When times get tough in this man-made hell, like a turtle we hide in our shells. The Rat Race is for the sheep; like a turtle we'd rather sleep. A cooter is a turtle, you know? Eat some more and then you'll grow! So lift your voice and scream high praise, 'My cooter controls my ways!'"

A call to arms...
The Cooters have returned again with fist-pumping, punk rock fury and heavy metal riffs that are guaranteed to whip any real rock and roll shit-kicker into a frenzy. Since our unholy conception in 1993, we have withstood incarcerations, controversy, carpetbaggers, boybands, pop-punk, rap metal, and all the drama and trends that would have destroyed a lesser band.

When it comes to playing, we take our cues from bad-asses like Motorhead, the Dead Kennedys, Black Sabbath, the Misfits, and the Stooges, expanding them to intergalactic proportions. We play both kinds of music: punk and metal. So ladies, bring the leather, and fellas, bring the booze 'cause we're gonna shake your soul with some high-velocity, rock and fuckin roll!

Any time. Any where. Any show...
The Cooters can hold our own with the biggest bands on the planet, or rock the night away at a small town DIY show. In years past we have played bars, clubs, theaters, festivals, community centers, house parties, parks, backyards, trailers, offices, and even some god-forsaken honky tonks. We've played with a wide variety of bands, everyone from Nashville Pussy to Total Chaos to Destroy! to Lost Goat to the North Mississippi All-Stars and many more. We will play your show and rock your scene.

Profane Existence

If the likes of Nigel Peppercock, Three-Fingered Demon or the Hellacopters light
The second full length experience from the Cooters, Mississippi's only punk metal band. I say experience, because that's what listening to a Cooters CD is: a full on immersion into punk, metal, and blues-laced stoner rock. Neuter Cooter was the original guitar player for Pissed and has brought back the anthem Purge here in a slightly faster and way more intricate, Cooterfied version. Most of the other songs are pretty standard rock'n'roll, but the sing-along bits and sarcastic lyrics give away their punk rock origins. There's no actual lyrics printed on the CD cover, because you can figure most of them out by listening to the disc. On the other hand, the CD cover is taken up by loads of great artwork that give you an insight into the politics and attitude of the band, even poking fun at the stereotypes people have of Mississippians and Southern culture. If the likes of Nigel Peppercock, Three-Fingered Demon or the Hellacopters light your fire, then this one is smoldering! — Dan (Profane Existence #40)

The Cooters have an over the top sound that is totally different than most of what is going on these days. It's a rock and roll sleazy hard sound that is somewhere between cow punk and metal, that is to say these guys are from the south no doubt.

Musically at times these guys have a repetitive sound that just kind of circles around your head. Chunky thick overdriven guitars that have something constantly going on whether it's the pummeling on the double bass beat rhythm power chords or the noisy am-rep styled crust open chords.

The guitar player doesn't play leads often (or maybe just often enough!), but when he does it's fast and furious metal/rock and roll/blues based madness...like something out of a B slasher western movie, like back to back with a Cramps song if that makes any sense. You could almost compare these guys to the Butthole Surfers or the Cows in the respect that they throw a lot of psychedelic stuff in there- acid sax, echo effects- although their sound is that of more of a precise machine with no slop. These guys are tight and that alone is a big part of their sound. Also noted that the inside cover of the CD is pure comedy gold! Holy crap! That along with 'Unclaimed Furniture' is worth the purchase alone...heheh. These guys have a sense of humor no less, and a great odd sound that would sound good cranked up in a drop top 60's Caddy screaming down the desert highway at night on the way to Vegas.

Vocals are often spoken or sang with a strange melody that reminds me of something Gibby from the Butthole Surfers would do. You could also compare these guys to Kung Pao; at least the Cooters give off the same kind of vibe...that would be a double bill not too miss! The Cooters obviously like I said have a lot going on, but I think it's safe to categorize them in with space rock bands because there are a lot of long jams that are mainly variations of the same riff...gotta love it.

Check this one out if you like Heroine Sheiks, BH Surfers, Jon Wayne (the band) and Kung Pao as mentioned above. Also, if you remember the Denver Colorado band Grimace (there are two bands named Grimace) you will probably appreciate this. Same kind of metallic guitar sound without the strange whammy pedal...rock!
