Any band that pays homage to Tony Joe White is okay by me.

He was referring to CCR.  But you have a point (at least laterally) in that SCOTS is perhaps more authentic.

SCOTS are a blast in concert! And, Rick the guitarist is amazing. Highly recommended if you ever get a chance to see them.

Reminds me of many times going to small venues, having a laugh and a drink and dancing the night away to a great band playing classics we all know just for the hell of it and having loads of fun.

I'm not going to comment any further through.  How can I?  I live in Austin but it's a stretch to call Austin a southern city or even a Texas city anymore.  And like the majority of people here I'm not really a Texan.  As a joke when a true Texan ask where I'm from I ask them where's the worst place you could be from?  They usually say California and I say right, good guess, but I'm not originally from California either, so where's the second worst place to be from and they usually guess New York and they would be right again (although rural Upstate in my case).

 
Could be worse you really could be from TX.  {#Roflol}

you can fix piston slap with a hammer and a punch. Peen the skirt and reinstall (and if you have to add some paper under the bearings to tighten them up as well). Tis how the po folk does it.

Rick Miller is a very skilled guitar player, though it may not always be so apparent (to some) in a some of their music.  I guess when some listeners (not you) hear a 7th chord played with that arpeggio (a style which is very long-established in R&B), they assume it's a rip-off of John Fogerty.

These guys are the real deal and put on a great live show. They play a fantastic mix of country, punk, humor, and yes, southern culture. I hope they stay in the rotation.

Faulkner sees all of the good, and all of the bad, in a magical amalgam of Americana at its finest, and poorest. Great analogy man!

Don't know them...That's an interesting enough name that I'll have to check 'em out. Said the same thing about SCOTS btw. 

I was guessing that this was a Blasters reunion or variation.

Yes yes, more cowbell, thanks for sharing. Even I'm getting tired of that line and I have OCD-perseveration issues (according to my therapist, Dr. Howard "Spruce Goose" Hughes).
