CC RIDERS



In 2001, Alicja Trout’s Contaminated Records released a 100 copies only CD-R by a band called CC RIDERS. Besides Alicja herself (The Clears, The Fitts, Lost Sounds, Mouserocket, Nervous Patterns, River City Tanlines, Black Sunday), this Memphis band included Monsieur Jeffrey Evans (Gibson Bros, ’68 Comeback, South Filthy), James Arthur (Fireworks, Necessary Evils, Feast of Snakes, Golden Boys) and a guy called Jay Reatard. Around 2000-2001, the band had a weekly practice on Friday evening 7-9pm and according to a recent Jeffrey Evans post on the Goner Board, Jay always added the right guitar parts and hooks even on the real rootsy stuff the band was doing. Despite the band’s killer line-up, the music on the 11-song CD-R is far from essential. Nevertheless, it’s great rockin’ stuff and I would love to own a copy on vinyl. I sincerely hope the album’s (re-)release is just a matter of time. In the meantime, you can enjoy the CC RIDERS here:

1. Monkey's Uncle
2. The Long, Long Ballad Of The Red-headed Girl (killer!!!)
3. I Gotta Right (Iggy And The Stooges)
4. Olde Joe Clarke (traditional)
5. Train Kepta Rollin' (Tiny Bradshaw)
6. Soul Deep (The Box Tops)
7. King Riders Boogie [King Riders Motorcycle Club, Memphis, TN]
8. This Pussy's Gotta Give
9. Sally Honeycutt Blues
10.Workin' Man Blues (Merle Haggard)
11.Stormy Monday Blues (traditional)
