Born to Be a Trucker
Mad Trucker Gone Mad Review by: Jeb Mad Trucker Gone Mad have the distinction of not only being the best psycho-billie band I have ever heard but also being near the top of my 'most underappreciated band in the world' list. It blows my mind that will all the half-baked 'pop punk' and 'alternative' bands selling millions of CDs that these boys aren't bigger than the soft taco. Not because they sound anything like the cookie cutter bands topping the charts, but because they are an honest-to-Gates radio friendly alternative to 'alternative' rock and they are ten times more poppy and twenty times more punk than most 'pop punk' bands. Their infectious hooks and contagious melodies are driven home with a tough as nails delivery that combines rock-a- billie, punk, blues and country in such a way as to convince me that these seemingly incompatible genres actually belong together. - the crass menagerie.
