Chickasaw Mudd Puppies: 8 Track Stomp

Mike Barnes, Select, April 1991

MICHAEL STIPE'S production involvement with Chickasaw Mudd Puppies has given them welcome exposure. Still, the duo from Athens, Georgia, would like to be remembered for more than giving him the platform for his debut on tuba! If that sounds odd, even more bizarre is that 75-year-old blues legend Willie Dixon co-produced the LP with Stipe, plays percussion and wrote a song especially for them.
