Andy Breighton Gets Super Stupid

Guest Post

Super Stupid
( 7" Ep  )

Sure their name is Super Stupid, but what a hard driving Detroit style rock and roll, beer drinking, 'n' pizza eating onslaught they are. You could make your typically comparisons to The Stooges and the MC5, which are easily applicable here, but Super Stupid rock in vein much more similar to slightly lesser known Michigan nugget sluggers like The UP, SRC and The Rationals. The opening track of this 4 song debut, “Hard Luvin'”, is a fun kick out jam that immediately reminded me of The UP's “Just Like An Aborigine” while one of the faster cuts, “Whiskey Cup” brought to mind newer old school Detroit finds Death. These guys can bring it live too, and they only reason that they're not most popular band in all of Cincinnati is that they just plain have too much fun!! Everyone else is just stained green with envy and juiced by jealousy. My copy is number 52 of a limited edition pressing of 100 with each sporting hand made cover in a limited edition of 1! Not sure where you can get this one unless your within speaking distance of the band themselves. Too bad these guys will never get a chance to split a pizza with the Sonic's Rendezvous Band.
