Supersuckers
Supersuckers
You’ve heard our name, you’ve seen our records, our t-shirts and our stickers. We’re probably the favorite band of someone you know and yet maybe we’re still a mystery to you. Well my friend, that’s okay, you’re at the right place to get to know the greatest rock-n-roll band in the world, The Supersuckers.

And the next time you see the ‘Supersuckers’ name, whether it’s in the record store, online somewhere, or on the marquee at your local rock club, know that there’s some quality, honest, ass-kicking, hard working individuals behind it all trying to make your life a little better through the “Evil Powers Of Rock-n-Roll” (and the occasional detour into the country music, of course) and we’d love nothing better than to have you there with us as! Just remember to wear clean underwear, because we’re gonna rock your pants right off of you.

Speedealer
Speedealer
Speedealer originally formed in 1992 in Lubbock, TX, under the name REO Speedealer. In 1997 when REO Speedwagon served the band a cease-and-desist order on their moniker, they shortened their name to Speedealer and released their debut, self-titled album on Royalty Records. The following year, after the departure of drummer Todd Mcglaulin and guitarist Mike Noyes, the hard rocking foursome — made up of singer/guitarist Jeff Hirshberg, bassist Rodney Skelton, and newly added drummer Harden Harrison(Rigor Mortis) and guitarist Eric Schmidt(Pervis) –, recorded and released their follow-up record, Here Comes Death, on the same label. Royalty Records went bankrupt soon after the band’s second release, leaving Speedealer to their own devices for exposure. Read Less

Label-less and musically driven, they played 309 shows in 1999 to stay in the public eye, pairing up with such like-minded, aggressive rockers as Motörhead, Fu Manchu, Neurosis, Zeke, and GWAR. Speedealer’s efforts finally paid off when Palm Records A&R man Michael Alago (who signed Metallica to Elektra and White Zombie to Geffen) contracted the band to his label. Palm Records re-released Here Comes Death in 2000, and Second Sight (produced by Jason Newstead of Metallica) in 2002. In 2003 Casey Orr(Rigor Mortis, GWAR, Ministry, and Burden Brothers) took over bass duties for Speedealer. Then came Dead Teenager’s release of Bleed, and Radical Record’s release of Speedealer’s live at GBGB recording Burned Alive. In 2012 Jeff Hirshberg decided to stop playing and writing music to pursue other interests. Current touring lineup is Eric Schmidt /Guitar, Harden Harrison/Drums, Rick Pearson (Buck Pets)/ bass, Dan Barron (The Swingin’ Dicks) /vocals, and Casey Orr (on occasion) / Bass.
