The Value of Nothing distills everything the frontman of the Supersuckers has learned in his career-long, over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek adoration of all things rock and roll into a genre-scoffing dose of snarling country rock, full of pop hooks and wiseguy humor delivered with a brain, a heart & a beer.

"Dig Thy Savage Soul" CD/LP Late Summer 2013
Boston's legendary Barrence Whitfield & The Savages' new album Dig Thy Savage Soul is a wealth of atomic-powered, sock it to me R&B and rock & roll hoodoo. Barrence, possessing otherworldly pipes that range from a low feral growl rumbling the nether regions to a scream that would make Little Richard blush, belts out originals and crate-diver covers with the formidable and aptly-named Savages. They keep his back with a punk rock grit and blues ferocity that lives in the frets between Chuck Berry and Jack White. Together, Barrence & the Savages lay down a groovy racket that’s so thick and greasy, you need moist towelettes near the hi-fi.
ROBBIE FULKS "GONE AWAY BACKWARD" BS 211 CD/LP AUGUST 27TH
Like a misfit boomerang circling back around, we are thrilled to announce that Robbie has returned to the Bloodshot roster fold. The 12-song album – and his first on the label since 2001 – was recorded and mixed by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago,
Recording at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville with producer Paul Ebersold and a motley crew of who's hooligans. No release date or title yet...
They are recording at Rick Miller's (Southern Culture on the Skids) Kudzu Ranch studio in North Carolina. Here's the word on how it's going from Dex hisself...
"This record could easily be called "The Versatile Romwebers" as again we are blending many styles and conjuring up many images. Our song "Blackout" as a friend remarked is almost darker theme one might hear in the Blues Brothers movie meaning Henry Mancini's "Peter Gunn" but its different too with shades of The Who, Hendrix in '65 and Stan Kenton's orchestra in the more hipster realms of the 50s. I'm also a big fan of Harry Luban who did theme music for shows like "One Step Beyond" and "The Outer Limits". The song entitled ''Weird'' which in "One Step Beyond" is the music not in the opening theme but during the show when ghosts, UFO's or odd paranormal experiences begin to rear their strange heads, and complete with tribal drums. There's "We'll Be Together Again" written by Sharon Sheeley-Eddie Cochran's girlfriend about Eddie Cochran's death on the dank dark morning in 1960 (in England) when Gene Vincent, Sharon and Eddies cab crashed and only Cochran perished....about rejoining those you might have lost. That song was never released formally yet recorded by Jackie De Shannon probably in around 1963. But there are more modern tunes to. "The Train Song" which is a bit more contemporary dirgy blues but one also hears a little Rick Derringer in it. - PEACE! - DEX"
