Southern Culture On the Skids

About Southern Culture On the Skids

North Carolina's Southern Culture on the Skids offer an affectionate parody of downscale trailer-park culture, matching their skewed outlook with a wild, careening brand of rock & roll. SCOTS' music is a quintessentially Southern-fried amalgam of rockabilly, boogie, country, blues, swamp pop, and vintage R&B, plus a liberal dose of California surf guitar, a hint of punk attitude, and the occasional mariachi horns. Following an early incarnation as a relatively straightforward roots rock outfit, they morphed into a raucous, tongue-in-cheek party band obsessed with sex and fried chicken in the early 1990s. 1991's Too Much Pork for Just One Fork made the group cult favorites, 1996's Dirt Track Date was a well-crafted but high-spirited major-label debut, 2010's The Kudzu Ranch saw them launching their own label, and 2021's At Home with Southern Culture on the Skids was recorded in the comfy confines of their guitarist's living room.
