Southern Culture On The Skids got a well deserved nod by “Weird” Al Yankovic on his recent no.1 album, ‘Mandatory Fun.’ Al did a SCOTS-style parody, similar to his DEVO-esque “Dare to Be Stupid.” The song “Lame Claim To Fame,” and subsequent video, pay a pastiche homage to the long running trio. I first got to know Southern Culture On The Skids from the HALLOWEEN HOOTENANNY comp when they teamed up with Zacherley for a cover of Creedence’s “Sinister Purpose.” I have to say, I prefer the SCOTS+Z version. Zach’s vocals add some real old time mysticism to it. But, what do you think?
