This legendary Athens duo made its mark in the early 90's with two Michael Stipe/Willie Dixon produced records: White Dirt and 8 Track Stomp and a rockin'-stompin' live show that earned them adoring fans all over the world. Dubbed swamp rock their unique sound owes in large part to their inventive approach to instrumentation, with Brant Slay playing the rockin' chair and stomp box (yeah that's right), wash board, cowbells and tin cans, combined with Ben Reynolds' frenetic blues guitar riffs. Alan Lumpy Cowart, former drummer of the legendary Jacksonville band Beggar Weeds (also Stipe-produced), recently joined the band and is no stranger to the Mudd Puppy sound, having shared many bills while on tour with CMP. The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies drag old-timey porch music kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. The Mudd Puppies are a couple of self-styled rustics who toy with old southern musical styles, both black and white, without being either folkloric or too-cute roots-rocky... White Dirt - augmented with drums, fiddle, and guitar - sweetens the mix without smoothing the edges, but live their foot stompin' and noisy guitar strumming goes down like a gulp of Old Grand-Dad, raw and fiery... The Village Voice, May 1990, Don Palmer The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies... come complete with their own image, sound and esthetic. They're not just [a] band; they're [a] concept... The Mudd Puppies do blues as modern-day folk art... New York Times, January 1991, Karen Schoemer Their reunion after a 20 year hiatus was sparked by recent interests in their music including songs in the upcoming films, The Mechanic (Jason Statham, Ben Foster and Donald Sutherland) and indie film, Tracing Cowboys. The Mudd Puppies enjoyed buzz band status in their first SXSW appearances and 2011 promises no less interesting. So dust off your stompin' shoes Mudd Puppies fans, its "The Young'uns Gotta Eat Tour"... HOOTEE HOO!
