EDDIE SPAGHETTI

SUNDOWNER

2011-03-07

On this, his third solo release and first for Bloodshot Records, Eddie Spaghetti, a long term member of the Supersuckers, (who’ve recorded with everyone from Willie Nelson to Eddie Vedder) lays down 12 cuts that veer between the upbeat cadence of the Ramones, "Everybody’s Girl", country twang, "Never Thought I Would", roots rockers, "If You Fall in Love", Jerry Jeff Walker style party anthems, "Party Dolls and Wine", and even Elvis’ reflective ballad, "Always On My Mind". The emphasis is on fun here with fantasies about life where money grows on tress, "Cowboy Boots", and the towel can be pulled off the model on the billboard that adorns the disc cover, "Girl on the Billboard", which will have long haul drivers everywhere paying new attention to the roadside. There’s also a quick appearance by Spaghetti’s son Quattro at the end who lays down some righteous punk snarl on "When Do I Go"? Smitty
