top 100

The Olympic Ass-Kickin Team: National Champions (Double Naught) Terry Anderson is some kind of neglected genius: His songs have been recorded not only by his own bands (the Woods and Yayhoos) but also the Georgia Satellites (“Battleship Chains”), Warren Zevon, Etta James, Al Anderson and Jo Dee Messina--and why not? His songs always boast an ear-grabbing pop hook that fits snugly into a garage-rock boogie. Drummer/singer Anderson’s latest vehicle is the Olympic Ass-Kickin’ Team, and these songs about Willie Mays, the Indy 500 and getting the brush-off from girls are not only ass-kicking but also damned catchy--and often very funny.
