The Ditty Twisters
Vicodin Saturday Night (Herbert House Records)

By: Mark A. Lawrence the IV

Any band can remake the theme to the Spider-Man cartoon or pen a mournful ballad of the woes about being Superman, but my all out geek respect goes to any band that sings a love song for The Swamp Thing. The Ditty Twisters latest CD Vicodin Saturday Night is a collection of fun songs that with a country-twang makes you laugh. From the black humor of "Secret Crush" to the hillbilly twist of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way"; this is music you don't have to think about, it just makes you feel good. They remind me of the humorous nature of the Corn Sisters and the liveliness of B52, if their songs were shorter and their diets consisted of Loretta Lynn albums and boxed Mac'n'Cheese, and they lived in a twister fearing trailer park. Hell, how can you not laugh at a song about delivering corn dogs to hookers. Rating: A-
