Mad Trucker Gone Mad

The revival of country music in indie-band land

"This Madison, WI-based trio, led by former Ladybeard leader Del Monte Carlo, rocks as sure as it howls, with so many swigs of moonshine '30s-'50s hoot rock that the band is more energized psychobilly. Harder and less quirky than fellow Wisconsinites the Violent Femmes and faster than the Cramps (who were more wonderfully perverse), Mad Trucker Gone Mad scores with a set of greasy but great hooks, reminding in the best senses of the Libertines' modernization of Leadbelly's '30s classic, "In the Pines." Or the Long Ryders if they'd had more Bill Haley, Hank Ballard, Jimmy Rodgers, Gene Autry, Carl Perkins, Gene Vincent, and Sun era Elvis in them (and a splash more cowboy hats and spurs). Great surprise!"

— Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover, All Music Guide
