"McPherson Struts"

"A McPherson Struts performance is akin to peeling out of a parking lot in an American car — back when American cars were cool, and tough — tires squealing, gears grinding and engines smoking." - The Anniston Star


"McPherson Struts"

“Rock bands with singing drummers take a lot of flak from some critics (amnesiacs who don't remember the Dave Clark Five), but McPherson could make a believer of the staunchest skeptic. He handles his dual role the same way Jerry Lee Lewis does double duty.” - Creative Loafing, Atlanta


"Top Fuel Boogie"

“The debut CD by McPherson Struts rips, kicking off with the crunchy tune, ‘A Way With Words.’ Buck, the singer, sure does have a way with words. The lyrics are sharp and funny. ‘Goin’ Blind,’ an ode to masturbators everywhere, is a slow grindin’ mean S.O.B. and ‘Mean Drunk’ has a high revving hillbilly beat with a punk edge. If you like heavy tunage, pick this one up pronto!” - S.D. Reader, San Diego


"McPherson Struts"

“McPherson Struts, led by a Southern twanged, whiskey-rasped front man extraordinaire, Buck McPherson, is a white-hot, white-trash extravaganza in the vein of bands like the Supersuckers or Nashville Pussy.” - Destroy All Monthly, Los Angeles


"Top Fuel Boogie"

“Stay gold Ponyboy, because this shit is greased up and ready to go. ‘Top Fuel Boogie,’ holding an obvious influence of music from the ’50s, sent me back to my parent’s prom. If old-fashioned rock-n-roll, fueled by a little bit of booze, isn’t your thing, stay home and argue about who gets to be the thimble in your game of Monopoly. I’m going to get drunk with McPherson Struts … God Bless America!” - Revolt in Style, Arizona, Nevada, California


"Top Fuel Boogie"

McPherson Struts: Top Fuel Boogie – “Make no mistake about it, what we’ve got here is 38 minutes of rockabilly-country-metal-punk-grunge-hotrod inflected bar band music at it’s finest, yes finest. It don’t come no finer! Torrid, nasty, hot, relentless bang, bang, bang with an occasional twang!” - SLAMM, San Diego

Bio

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 June 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).
