Chickasaw Mudd Puppies, Say Zu Zu

#36A Chickasaw Mudd Puppies
THEIR NAME IS MUDD: The Chickasaw Mudd Puppies return to swamp it up Apr. 26.
Friday April 26, 2024 08:00 PM EDT
Cost: $20-$31.25
CRITIC’S PICK: Thirty-two years after their last album, Athens’ most unhinged rocking trio returns to remind us of how nobody quite sounds like their combination of Michael Stipe-approved stomping swamp, raw country and twisted, liquored-up rockabilly. If you missed ’em then, you’ve got another chance to get on board. Better still, the Puppies are promoting a new album, Fall Line, their third, a logical if somewhat less manic, follow-up to their first two. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Let’s get right down to brass tacks, y’all: the Chickasaw Mudd Puppies are back! And if you ain’t excited about that, doggone it, you either don’t know a lick about what you’ve been missing or you just ain’t quite right. Their brand spankin’ new record Fall Line is a high-octane distillation of all the sound and the fury and the supercharged heart and soul that made this crackerjack combo oh so rip-roaringly great from the get-go. It hoots and it hollers and it hearkens smack-dab back to when they kicked off the decade in Southern-fried style with their red hot debut EP White Dirt, following it up like white lightnin’ with their last barn-burning full-length 8 Track Stomp.

Founded by Jon and James Nolan and Cliff Murphy in 1991, Say ZuZu built an international following through unvarnished live performances, durable and direct songs about milltown life, and electrifying harmonies. The band toured relentlessly from Maine to Texas to Italy, operating out of a decidedly unglamorous 24 passenger school bus, and recorded nine albums before breaking up in 2002. 

Now jumping forward to 2022, the New Hampshire alt-country rock band is reuniting after a 20-year hiatus, returning to the world of Americana music with Here Again: A Retrospective (1994-2002).
