Since the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album “Top Fuel Boogie” in 2001, McPherson Struts have been tearin' up the road playing their brand of punk-infused country rock.
Known for their over-the-top stage antics, unique set-up (stand-up drummer/singer) and often hilarious lyrics, the Struts have left a trail of rabid fans in their wake. With the release of the “Shocker” EP in 2005 and “The Gear-jammin', Door-slammin', Nitro-burnin' Genius of McPherson Struts” in 2009, they have proved that the road never ends.
Guitarist H.R. Core's love of Texas blues, along with Buck McPherson's affinity for '50s and '60s rockabilly/surf and Jeff Freeman's punk-inspired bass attack combine for what Atlanta's Creative Loafing magazine describes as “A delightfully deranged country/punkabilly trio. These guys are like Jason and the Scorchers, scattered, smothered and covered with the Circle Jerks.”
But the Struts sound can be summed up in two words ... ALABAMA COWPUNK!
McPherson Struts has shared the stage with such diverse and notable acts as George Thorogood, the Black Crowes, Drive-by Truckers, Agent Orange and Nashville Pussy. They've also headlined many national and regional dates, including winning the 2009 Alabama Jim Beam Battle of the Bands and performing at the 2009 BamaJam Arts and Music Festival (attendance 120,000).
