Southern Culture On The Skids have been recording and touring regularly around the world since 1983. The band (Rick Miller – guitar and vocals, Mary Huff – bass and vocals, Dave Hartman – drums) have been playing together for over 30 years. Their musical journey has taken them from late-night parties in North Carolina to late-night TV talk shows (Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show), from performing at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan to wiggling for inmates of North Carolina Correctional Institutions. They have shared a stage with many musical luminaries including Link Wray, Loretta Lynn, Hasil Adkins and Patti Smith. Their music has been featured in movies and on TV, parodied by Weird Al, and used to sell everything from diamonds to pork sausages. In 2014, the group was honored by the Southern Folklife Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill with an exhibit showcasing their music and cultural contributions. Their legendary live shows are a testament to the therapeutic powers of stomping, butt-shaking rock and roll and what Rolling Stone dubbed “one hellish rock and roll party.”
At Home with Southern Culture on the Skids is the band’s latest full-length album and was released in March 2021. It was recorded during the stay-at-home period of the pandemic when the band was at home and not on tour. The album consists of 11 tracks recorded and mixed in Rick Miller’s living room with a few additional tracks recorded in his studio, The Kudzu Ranch.
The other songs on the album are a combination of the band’s unique blend of musical genres: rock and roll, surf, folk and country, all a little off-center, what Rick proudly calls “our wobbly Americana”. So put on your headphones, settle into your favorite chair/sofa/recliner, put on “At Home With” and let’s hang out.”
