Dagg Nabbit Stubbs – Hot Garbage Review (Album/CD)

Note: The Drunken Bastard himself doesn’t wake from his drunken stupor often for an album review, but after learning that his long-time friends and drinking buddies of the Dagg Nabbit Stubbs were releasing an EP from the belly of the Georgia swamps he couldn’t resist. With a fresh jug of corn whiskey, D.B. wrote this:

Some people sell their soul to the Devil and prosper from it (Robert Johnson, Jimmy Page, Marie Osmond), while others (Vanilla Ice, Oral Roberts, Donny Osmond) are less successful. My deal was for a twelve pack of New Coke and a sequel to the movie “Highlander” … maybe I need to renegotiate.

Hailing from Swampwater, Georgia (Like there’s such place called Georgia.) and with their debut E.P. “Hot Garbage,The Dagg Nabbit Stubbs are able to not only make a rockin’ CD but also a fun one as well. The lead in song called “The Devil’s Work” tells of their own contract negotiations with “Old Scratch” and getting to ride in his invisible jet (jealous yet?). “Devlin’ Under the Influence” is a jammin’ road ditty that makes you want to get out your drinkin’ jar and pick up your special needs cousin Ronnie and go crusin’ down Satan’s highway.

The Devil’s Dance Party” mixes square dancing with heavy rock and “Footloose” references (six degrees of Kevin B.) and if you ever wondered about the details of “carnie” love then take a gander at “You and me and the Devil makes Four” and you’ll wonder no longer.

These Pancakes are Made with the Devil’s Bisquick” tells the tale of one man’s epic battle against a one hundred pound bass called “The General.” The final track on this heavy drop-d tuned redneck rock fest, “The Devil and Peter Graves“: If a song about everybody’s favorite A&E Biography host (Fuck You Jack Perkins! You know why.) doesn’t light your fire then your woods are wet.

So did The Dagg Nabbit Stubbs get a good deal from Beelzebubba? Really, only time will tell but with their blues/country/rock sound, and their harmonizing along with the occasional diva like outburst the Ouija Board is pointing to yes.
