Legendary Shack Shakers in Mud video

The Legendary Shack Shakers have released a video for their track Mud, taken from upcoming album The Southern Surreal.

It’s launched via Alternative Tentacles Recordings on September 11, and marks their first studio outing in five years.

Frontman Colonel JD Wilkes says: “Mud is an anthem for good ole Whiskey Dick – the train that once served as the drunkard’s shuttle to the ‘wet’ counties of Kentucky.

“Characters abound along the way, from a clown named Spoons to a Dixie Witch with a mud yurt in a ditch. I always wanted to sneak the word ‘yurt’ into a song.”

The Shakers return to the UK in November, to mark their 20th anniversary:

Nov 10: Brighton The Haunt Nov 11: Saddleworth White Hart at Lydgate Nov 12: Glasgow Broadcast Nov 13: Belfast Voodoo Nov 14: Dublin TBA Nov 16: Bristol Colston Hall Lantern Nov 17: Newcastle Cluny Nov 18: London Garage

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
