Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! songs Product Information
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! album for sale by Supersuckers was released Apr 05, 2005 on the Mid-Fi label. Once you get past their resin-soaked detour into country music, Must've Been High, the Supersuckers aren't a band offering much in the way of surprises -- put on one of their records, and you'll get big slabs of high-swagger Rawk, with hard rock guitar punch bolted to hardcore speed-jive while a cloud of smart-ass humor hovers over the top. With this kind of consistency of vision, it shouldn't come as a shock that Devil's Food, an odds 'n' sods collection of single sides, Internet-only tracks, covers, and unreleased tunes, hangs together with the focus of a "real" album instead of a compilation, but what should genuinely raise eyebrows is that nothing here sounds like a throwaway that didn't make the cut elsewhere. ...See Full Description

Digitally remastered by Dan Hersch and Bill Inglot (Digiprep Studios).
The last installment of the Ramones' breathtaking run of four albums in two years, the underrated ROAD TO RUIN shows that the group's follow-up, the Phil Spector-produced END OF THE CENTURY, was not as huge a change of direction as it's often made out to be. Compared to the fairly primitive RAMONES and LEAVE HOME, ROCKET TO RUSSIA had sounded almost slick, and ROAD TO RUIN goes it one better. Tom Erdelyi remains as co-producer, but his new partner Ed Stasium reveals a gift for balancing hard-candy gloss, bubble-gum hooks and noisy punk passion; similarly, Erdelyi's replacement on the drums, former glam-rocker Marc Bell, adds both power and finesse.
The high points--particularly the uncharacteristically emotional love song "Questioningly" and the immortal rocker "I Wanna Be Sedated"--are excellent, and ROAD TO RUIN is a fitting conclusion to the Ramones' first and best era. The bonus tracks on the 2001 Rhino reissue include two early, Stasium-produced versions of "I Want You Around" and "Rock and Roll High School," along with the raucous 11-minute live medley that's the climax of the film of the same name, and a pair of previously unreleased demos.
Contains 4 Bonus Tracks. 4th Album.
Reissue producers: Bill Inglot, Gary Stewart.
Engineers: T. Erdelyi, Ed Stasium.
The Ramones: Joey Ramone (vocals); Johnny Ramone (guitar); Dee Dee Ramone (bass, background vocals); Marky Ramone (drums).

|Motherfuckers Be Trippin' CD (2003)
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! CD music The Supersuckers are the only band in the world that could release an album called Motherfuckers Be Trippin' without sounding hokey or just plain ridiculous. In fact, it sounds kind of cool. Of course, this is possible only because the Supersuckers, and able leader Eddie Spaghetti, don't take themselves too seriously. However, what they do take seriously is rockin' out-- and that's something that they're still doing quite well 13 years into their career.
Album opener "Rock-n-Roll Records (Ain't Sellin' This Year)" is classic Supersuckers. Big riffs informed by years of binging on Thin Lizzy and Motorhead albums pull the listeners in as Spaghetti tells the truth about how much it sucks to be a band out there busting ass to make good records and put on rocking shows only to watch as worthless 3rd rate bands go platinum. Ever the optimist, in the end Spaghetti decides to stick to his guns and keep rockin' his way--which sets the tone for the rest of the album quite well. This album sounds like a Supersuckers album, and it will never be mistaken for anything else (especially not any lame flavor-of-the-week) and they wouldn't have it any other way.
Of course, most of the songs don't have messages that are quite so, um, serious (see "Are You Ready" for lines like "I'm Eddie Spaghetti/Here to rock your asses steady/Grab a drink and chug-a-lug/Have some sex and take some drugs"), and that's just fine. The Supersuckers are essentially the ultimate party band: their songs are fun, but the music is solid, with plenty of blazing solos and big choruses, and you get the feeling that they'd take a break between songs to have a drink with you (if you're buying).
"Pretty Fucked Up" would be a radio hit were it not for the prevalence of the f-word in the chorus. The ultra catchy union of Thin Lizzy hooks and Cheap Trick sing-along style choruses and punk attitude ("She used to be pretty/Now she's pretty fucked up") make this song absolutely irresistible and sure to be inducted into the Supersuckers' canon of classics alongside "Coattail Rider," "Creepy Jackalope Eye" and "Santa Rita High."
The lackluster "Nowhere Special" is a rip-off of the `suckers' own "Born With A Tail," making it the low point of the album (but a Supersuckers throwaway is still better than any of the garbage passing for "rock" these days--Sum 41, American Hi-Fi, Creed, Pete Yorn--I'm looking at you).
While last year's Country & Western-driven Must've Been Live was an impressive collection, Trippin' will satisfy the old school fans who've been asking where the rock went. The boys are back in town, and they're drunk. ~ Karen E. Graves
Recorded at Litho Studios, Seattle, Washington.
Supersuckers: Eddie Spaghetti (vocals, bass); Rontrose Heathman, Dan Bolton (guitar, background vocals); Dancing Eagle (drums).
|Evil Powers of Rock 'n' Roll CD (1999)
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! songs A one-of-a-kind hybrid of '70s guitar rock, Americana, and power pop, the Supersuckers toiled throughout the late 1990s in search of a label and an audience that their outsized attitude begged for. In this context, THE EVIL POWERS OF ROCK 'N' ROLL, which marked the group's return to rock after country detour MUST'VE BEEN HIGH, can be seen as a statement of survival and purpose. Strains of everything from Thin Lizzy to Steve Earle are detectable in such songs as the overdriven "I Want the Drugs" and the spot-on title track. But the barely contained glee is the Supersuckers' own.

|La Mano Cornuda CD (1994)
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! album for sale LA MANO CORNUDA features a hidden 14th track which repeats the entire album's program.
La Mano Cornuda, or the horns of the devil, is The Supersuckers' most ambitious record to date as the intense guitar chord explosion first heard on The Smoke of Hell is joined with a more aggressive lead guitar attack that almost verges on The Supersuckers' closet dream of heavy metal machismo. Every song on La Mano Cornuda (with the exception of the limp punk-pop slacker anthem "On the Couch") embraces an overpowering rock jock attitude that will either disgust you or leave you rolling on the floor. ~ Matt Carlson
Recorded at Egg Studios, Seattle, Washington in November 1993.
Supersuckers: Eddie "Spaghetti" Daly (vocals, bass); Dan Bolton, Ron Heathman (guitar); Dan "Daniel Matzohballs" Seigal (drums).
|Sacrilicious Sounds of the Supersuckers CD (1995)
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! CD music One would think that with the addition of one of punk rock's best guitarists, ex-Didjit Rick Sims, the Supersuckers would easily recover from the departure of Ron Heathman and maybe be the better for it. But, as Sacrilicious painfully illustrates, Heathman added much more bulk to The Supersuckers' sound than Sims provides here. While Sacrilicious offers less of the spirited blunt edge found on La Mano Cornuda, songs like the amphetamine-country stampede of "Born With A Tail" and the Bourbon St. blues shuffle of "Don't Turn Blue" thankfully expand The Supersuckers' musical vocabulary. Most, however, are unfortunately indistinct hard-rock songs, but give this new lineup time to evolve. ~ Matt Carlson

|Smoke of Hell CD (1992) |
Devil's Food: A Collection of Rare Treats & Evil Sweets! buy CD music In the midst of the grunge revolution, The Supersuckers released this largely unnoticed album, The Smoke of Hell, which begins with a song that can not only be praised for its muscle but also for its psychic prediction -- "Coattail Rider." The band perked things up a bit since their dreary early singles. Songs like "Luck," "Caliente," and "Hot Rod Rally" rapidly surge with electric power chord fury, while the band brings it down some for the blues ramble of "Hell City, Hell." ~ Matt Carlson
