Conquerer Worm - Ride-On

Now, I gotta be honest with you. I was never familiar with Simon Stokes along the way. But apparently, in certain circles he was/is the shit. And one of those circles has a ring of scum around it. Conquerer Worm is a scum rock supergroup paying tribute to Simon Stokes. and his lengthy career. This is a damned enjoyable release.

Polecat Boogie Revival - Self-Titled

After the initial demise of Hellstomper, lead singer Alan The Goddamn King formed this band of southern gentlemen. A little less "punky-tonk" and a little more "southern boogie". Quite the ode to Black Oak Arkansas, really. And oddly, the initials of the band ended up PBR. I'm sure that was an accident, right?

Hellstomper - The Real Hillbilly Motherfucker

Now it's time to get down and dirty. I mean deep down in the Georgia mud. Hellstomper originally started in 1994. Although laid to rest in 2004 they've been born again in recent years. I believe they call their unique southern sound as 'punky-tonk'. Call it what you want, but I'd make sure to be on their side when the shit starts goin' down on a Saturday night. This is the 2005 re-issue of their 2000 classic. Does anyone happen to have their 2014 Live album?

Hammerlock - Let The Bad Times Roll

Now here's a band I really like. Travis and Liza started Hammerlock in Oakland in 1995. Since then they've consistently blended rock, country and of course punk for some pretty cool tunes. This is their 2009 offering.

Before I Hang - Mississippi

We're going to spend a little time with the Confederacy of Scum now. That loose-knit band of punk rock outlaws have put out some great stuff over the years. Never heard of the CoS? Well here's what Hellstomper (we'll get to them soon enough) singer Alan The Goddamn King has to say about it:

"For some reason, all you silly little pricks with your fucked up haircuts still think that we are playing for you. You're wrong. Damn wrong. Hell, we play for rednecks, truck drivers, and white trash. Our male fans have moustaches and our female fans wear tube tops!"

We start in Mississippi, with Before I Hang. Originally formed in 1991 and still going strong today. Mean and aggressive southern hardcore.
