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.

The greatest American underground rock band of the last 25 years...

One of the few outfits that can call itself “The World’s Greatest Rock ’n’ Roll Band!” and actually get away with it, the Supersuckers eat Marshall stacks and cowboy hats and s**t out high-volume ass-kickery, Motörheading country music and Willie Nelsoning garage-punk better than virtually anyone else, ever.

They played my birthday party. They rock!

Every time I hear the word ‘Supersucker,’ I’m reminded of an older gentleman who went into the strip bar and the hooker c’m dancing up to him and said ‘Superpussy!’ and he said ‘Soup, please.’
-Willie Nelson

Supersuckers…I love the Supersuckers, our whole band loves you guys!
-Robin Zander from Cheap Trick

The Supersuckers understand that great rock and great country are, at least on a spiritual level, exactly the same thing. Rock on, boys.
-Steve Earle

The Supersuckers rock ferociously whenever they feel like it and what really matters is ending this sentence with an exclamation point!

Stop listening to the radio and buy a Supersuckers CD, fool!

What type of music does the SUPERSUCKERS play ?. Its called Rock n Roll. What do they do live? Put on a rock show, and they do it better than the rest. I NEVER tire of their music and the Supersuckers are the bands that will make me get up off my ass to go see live and stand in up front in the crowd the whole show.... SUPERSUCKERS are THE Rock Band.

Supersuckers! The hardest working Rock N Roll band in America. I know this because they are in my town every other month in a van. I get tired just watching them. I'm not worthy to be in a rock band! I quit!!!!!
-Kevin from Lit/Good Man Down

Once upon a time, barbers doubled as surgeons, offering bloodletting and teeth-pulling as well as razor cuts. The Cutthroat Brothers may not literally induce bloodletting, but they certainly do figuratively on their independent self-titled full-length debut.

The duo of real-life barbers—Jason Cutthroat [vocals, guitar] and Donny Paycheck [drums]—carve up a bloody, ballsy and brash brand of rock ‘n’ roll that—not unlike their medieval counterparts—takes no prisoners. Donning blood-spattered white smocks, they’re as handy with a straight razor as they are with garage punk.
THE CUTTHROAT BROTHERS CARVE UP A BLOODY, BALLSY AND BRASH BRAND OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL THAT TAKES NO PRISONERS.
“The classic imagery of what a barber is correlates so well to the music,” says Donny. “We keep it straightforward and as sharp as possible.”

“It’s a little creepy and weird,” Jason adds. “But it’s a lot of fun and ties into what we do every day.”

Jason and Donny initially got acquainted in the Pacific Northwest rock scene as both played in local bands. Most notably, Donny made his bones behind the kit for the iconic Zeke.

They met again years later, after Jason traded Washington for the Big Island of Hawaii. Initially, they bonded over a love for the Big Island as Donny visited Hawaii regularly.

In February 2018, Jason sent Donny a life-changing text…

“After all these years, we’d never really talked about music, but on a whim, I said, ‘I’m thinking of writing some songs. Do you want to play drums on them? I’ve got an idea for this sound I want to do’,” Jason recalls. “He wrote back immediately: ‘Yes. Do you want to record with Jack Endino?’ Of course, I said, ‘Yes.’ It was a dream come true.”
Jason headed to Washington, and the pair hit the studio with the legendary Endino [Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney]. Within three days, they wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered their full-length debut, The Cutthroat Brothers.
THEY’RE AS HANDY WITH A STRAIGHT RAZOR AS THEY ARE WITH GARAGE PUNK.

“When I told Jack we’d never played together, I thought he was going to strangle the both of us,” laughs Jason.

Donny adds, “I was like, ‘It’s going to be fine, Jack! Don’t worry about it.’”

It all worked out. The Cutthroat Brothers ignited a grunge-y garage punk assault—as if The Gun Club hailed from Seattle circa ‘92. The album opener “Kill 4 U” breaks down the door with reckless riffing and a hard-hitting hook that proves equally incisive and infectious.
“It’s the idea that you’re so fucking in love with somebody, you lose control,” explains Jason. “It’s a great, but horrible, roller coaster feeling. Some guys might buy flowers. We're saying, ‘I’d kill for you.’

“Potions & Powders” is devilishly intoxicating while the psychedelic swing of “Snake Breath” bares sharp teeth. Swooning like a demented fifties ballad, “Violent Crime” seduces in the darkest way—equating love and murder.
THE DEBUT RELEASE'S RECKLESS RIFFING AND HARD-HITTING HOOKS ARE EQUALLY INCISIVE AND INFECTIOUS.

In the end, it’s that kind of contrast that cuts deepest for The Cutthroat Brothers. These barber brothers have created a vision steeped in blood and balls-out rock ‘n’ roll.

As Jason sings on “Skeleton Rides”: “You take the ticket and step inside.”

Your ticket awaits…
“The sinewy slide guitars sound as if they’re powered by gasoline, and the measures lubed with motor oil...wouldn’t sound out of place in the next Quentin Tarantino film.”
— NORTH COAST VOICE
“Draws lineage from greats like The Cramps and The Gun Club, reinvented in their sinister, mysterious and grungy fashion. ”
— TAKE EFFECT
“The Sweeney Todd of punk rock. These guys don’t only rock out, they cut hair too! Not at the same time of course. This 2-piece loves to lay down a sick drum beat while they slide around on guitar.”
— BASEMENT SHOW RADIO
“The Gun Club, Doo Rag, and a little bit of Tom Waits mixed in a blender.”
— DAN KASHKOOLI
