The Supersuckers
DEVILíS FOOD
(Mid-Fi)

With the finer points of shitkicking being as tough to judge as style in a chugalug contest, what distinguishes the Supersuckers from other veteran brewers of punk, twang, and í70s hard rock is their silliness and their sense of adventure. In this batch of recent rarities, frontman Eddie Spaghetti leads the band through note-for-note, word-for-word replicas of Outkastís "Hey Ya!" and the Chipsí "Rubber Biscuit." Chutzpah aside, it sweeps you up like a night of drunken karaoke. And though the fun is hardly infectious when the boys tweak Lionel Richieís "Sail On" into Skynyrdian sludge, itís the originals, not the covers, that make a bandís odds and ends a barometer of their overall health. Such castaways donít come more album-worthy than the power-popping "Team Man" and "End of an Era" ó the latter proving, in thoughtful strokes, that Spaghetti can turn a crafty phrase or two. But lest the Supersuckers be seen to spare the boot, half of Devilís Food is packed with stone rave-ups. The ripping "Can Pipe" even makes improvised bongs worth shouting about for two grubby minutes.

(The Supersuckers open for the Reverend Horton Heat next Thursday, May 5, downstairs at the Middle East, 480 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square; call 617-864-EAST.)
