B-sides and rarities from the Beatles-loving quartet that brought you “Sucked Out.”
Label: Arena Rock Recording Company / Redeye

Superdrag's “Sucked Out” was one of the better lone alterna-hits of the ’90s, but it failed to display the group's talent for graceful ’60s thievery. With a few ancient organs and flanging drum fills, this compilation of b-sides and rarities, ranging from 1997 to the start of their ongoing hiatus in 2003, makes up for that. In fact, opener “Here We Come” borrows so blatantly from the Beatles '”You Never Give Me Your Money” that… read more »

Well written songs

BaileyTom

I don't know what the other reviewers are talking about but this album is EXACTLY what it is meant to be...a collection of B-Sides and different takes. (I'm sure some of them aren't even fully-mixed studio takes). Obviously they weren't a good fit to put on the albums but they are by no means poorly written songs. This isn't the album to start with Superdrag but it's nice to have something new to download from these guys.

Say what what?

Superdrag was always underrated. Granted, I haven't heard this collection yet, but I suspect it'll be good. And, yes, this band was good.

I don't understand

Sorry but I don't understand how this can be a top download.... It's just weak, no passion, no feeling its just weak,

They Say All Music Guide

Some bands have more worthwhile songs than places to put them, and this seems to be the case with Knoxville, TN’s guitar pop powerhouse Superdrag. Given the steady stream of singles the band has cranked out during their lifespan, John Davis and his bandmates clearly generate more material than they can use up at the rate they record albums, and Changin’ Tires on the Road to Ruin is a collection of demo tapes and live recordings that offers alternate versions of five tunes from earlier Superdrag albums, and nine songs that have never made it onto a long-player before. Most of the tracks on Changin’ Tires were recorded on cassette, so the production lacks something in the way of gloss, but as a set of songs, this is as consistently enjoyable as anything Superdrag have put out since Regretfully Yours in 1996, and “Here We Come,” “She Says,” “I Am Incinerator” and “Relocate My Satellites” deliver the kind of high quality melodies and high octane hooks that made this act a favorite in the first place. And despite the no-frills recording, the band sounds tight and forceful when they turn up the amps in their demo studio; most of these performances recall the straightforward energy of a good live tape than anything else, and the final two tracks, recorded during a 2003 gig at Nashville’s Exit/In, offer further evidence of how good Superdrag can be when they hit their stride in front of an enthusiastic audience. Some listeners not already hip to Superdrag might be put off by the scratchy lo-fi sound of a few tracks, but fans will have much less trouble listening through the flawed audio (which is actually pretty good most of the time) and enjoying the great songs and estimable energy at the heart of these 14 tracks.
