Southern Culture on the Skids: “Liquored Up and Lacquered Down” (2000)

“This one’s dedicated to big hair…and high balls”, says guitarist and vocalist Rick Miller as he introduces this song on SCOTS’s live album. Although their sound is typically more along the lines of a country/surf guitar/rockabilly blend, “Liquored Up and Lacquered Down” isn’t a bad calling card for their winking, deliberately white-trashy, double-entendre laden, good-time party sound. They’ve carved out a sound and a look of their own: Miller is a walking tribute to bad taste in clothing; bassist Mary Huff, who sports the big hair herself, just might be dressed like a waitress from a roadside greasy spoon if you see them live. And you should. Hank definitely did NOT do it this way.
