Album Notes
When you think of modern day southern rock n roll, the band that is going to come everyone’s mind is the State Line Mob.Their three-guitar weaving line-up is a southern outlaw sound & image that’s hard to forget. The band was formed in 2007 by vocalists/songwriters Phillip Crunk and Dana Crunk.They both previously played for years in different bands, while cutting their teeth in some of the south’s most dangerous and run down honkytonk-taverns, where they learned the true meaning of southern grit and tough determination.

At the time they formed the State Line Mob, the two were playing for tips and free moonshine & beer at a dive surrounded by a swamp in Northwest Alabama, with no roads leading out but one, a dirt road that they plan on following straight to the top. Their name "State Line Mob" came from a real Dixie-crime organization that existed on the Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee border that operated illegal gambling halls and whiskey distilleries, amongst other numerous criminal activities, in the backwoods of these great states before being run out by Sheriff Buford Pusser and his posse back in the 60's & 70's era. The band will not comment on whether the State Line Mob still exists or whether they have any affiliation with this underground organization. The group was discovered in Muscle Shoals Alabama by producer and co-writer on the album Chris Sevier who has worked with artist such as Eliot Morris, Matt Woods, Chad Bradford, Painkiller Hotel, Jason Childers, who was looking for an authentic country act, having become sick of the imposters clogging Nashville and making a mockery of southern music itself. He discovered the band while they were playing a local gig on his way back from Nashville and signed them to his Severe Records on a non-exclusive basis. And in doing so, authenticity is what he got.

Their debut album "Ruckus" is the best American southern rock album of 2009 & beyond being what some folks are saying is the best Southern Rock album since Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Street Survivors" way back in 1977. If you think this is all hyperbole, then just listen to the album. The band's outlaw sound is similar to that of Bad Company’s and 38 Special’s, updated for this decade & era. Three guitars batter you while leaders Phillip Crunk and Dana Crunk trade off on vocals and sing for you southern harmony. The album deals with subjects as diverse as a southern man’s pride in his 70 Dodge Charger in “American Beauty” and the plight of the State Line Mob against the law itself in “McNairy County Line”. Clever tracks abound, the best of which are "Hooked", "It Keeps Me Going”, "Holding You", and "Who Do You Love." With "Ruckus," they have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in American music. The song “Baby I miss You” is straight-ahead Southern boogie, whereas “Southern Comfort” is the essence of Southern soul. Most of the tracks embody country-fried blues-rock and driving, arena-ready southern rock, that will leave no listener disappointed. Paraphrasing the title of one of the album's songs, “I Need Rock and Roll.”

Fortunately, you don't need a bottle of Jack or even a trace of Southern lineage to appreciate the genius of “Ruckus".The lyrics are great, the trio of electric guitars is blessed with raw production & will have you cranking up the album for your friends. And, after a few spins of “Ruckus,” you might even find yourself digging out those old Allman Brothers’ LPs again.

Great CD
This is great music by a great band. There music is similar to a few bands but it is original. Music that once you hear it you will listen to it a few more times then. I feel this band should be preparing to go through some wonderful things in their near future. The music is written in true Southern Rock tradition. If you like Southern Rock I would highly recommend Buying this CD.

This is a great album I except a lot of people to buy it and play it and advertise them to your family and friends to buy as well !

Dan Monroe

Next Superstars !!
This is the best music I have heard in a long time. Music is great, lyrics are Awesome! This is some outstanding song writing. Buy this cd and you will be an instant fan of a great new band that in my opinion is going straight to top. They are better than most bands that are signed to major recording contracts right now.
Can't wait for the next cd! BUY THIS NOW!!!

I agree with everyone else. State Line Mob is Amazing.I bought Ruckus from their website & they actually sent me a signed copy personally autographed to me. They are down to earth the way they treat their fans & I am one of State Line Mob's BIggest fans! But I found this site & wanted to leave a review for them. I feel like i could write a bio myself about them. Just do yourself a Huge favor & buy Ruckus. Not only does every song on the cd ROCK but the cd is beautifully designed as well as the inside photos ect. Well worth the money. The least i can do is write this review & hopefully everyone that comes to this page will order a State Line Mob cd or 2 or 3. I gurantee your family & friends would appreciate their very own copy of Ruckus. And if you get hooked on State Line Mob like i am they have a bunch of merch on their website. I sport my Mob shirt everywhere i go. You can download the songs but your missing so much by not going ahead & buying the cd. Why phillip & Dana is not signed & winning grammys is beyond me. Enough said. BUY RUCKUS!!
