Legendary Shack Shakers' repressing of 2010's AgriDustrial on Muddy Roots Music Recordings. A roots rock juggernaut from Nashville, TN, the Legendary Shack Shakers are a hot-rodded foursome combining blues, rockabilly, country, and rock & roll into one manic assemblage boasting all the gloriously explosive instability of an M-80. Fronted by the manic JD Wilkes, who when not busy with music (he also leads the Dirt Daubers and plays solo) is also known as a visual artist, publishing comic books and creating elaborate "carnival art" murals on discarded roll-up projection screens.
On this record we hear new guitarist Duane Denison (Hank III, Jesus Lizard), who plays with the enthusiastic power of his predecessors, while new drummer Brett Whitacre drives his kit like it's a semi full of dynamite rolling down a steep hill with no brakes. Singer Colonel JD Wilkes matches the mania of his bandmates, and with longtime bass man Mark Roberts in tow, they deliver an LP packed with sizzling slabs of rock mayhem. This is one sweet and evil ride.
The Legendary Shack Shakers play like their lives depend on it here wringing the maximum force out of every note. Agri.Dustrial - already a timeless classic!
