Play That Rock´n`Roll rocks with an amphetamine intensity, delivering muscular riffs, big choruses and more than a few tricks up its sleeve. Raw, immediate and often times hilarious, Play That Rock´n`Roll is the album a band makes after slugging it out on the road for thirty years (barring a one year hiatus while Eddie battled throat cancer). No frills, no guest stars and no collaborations, the album earns the listener s ear the Supersuckers have lived this sh*t and you can feel it. The album also includes a rousing cover of Michael Monroe s Dead, Jail Or Rock´n`Roll and a long overdue revival of the Allen Toussaint penned A Certain Girl . All in all, Play That Rock´n`Roll delivers the middle finger brand of Rock´n`Roll the band has been known for since signing to Sub Pop in the early 1990s. Combining the ferocity of Motörhead, the off kilter humor of Cheap Trick and the swagger of Steve Earle, the Suckers earned their spurs playing everywhere from dirt floor dive bars to The Tonight Show.
