Like a three-ring circus, Southern Culture on the Skids are a visual trip onstage. Drummer Dave Hartman performs standing up, singer-bassist Mary Huff often is decked out in fantastic, colorful wigs, and singer-guitarist Rick Miller hands out buckets of chicken to fans midsong. However, the fun-loving roots-trash-surf trio from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, are far more than just a novelty band. If you close your eyes, the musical prowess of the group becomes immediately obvious. Miller scratches up a slew of deft CCR-style licks on guitar, and he and Huff are fine vocalists, trading off on such catchy originals and inspired cover songs as “Banana Pudding,” “Mojo Box” and “Fire of Love.” SCOTS’ most recent album, The Electric Pinecones, is a ’60s-tinged assortment of country and garage-rock tunes. It’s all fun, fun, fun, as The Beach Boys would say.
