“Outlaw country devotees take note, this is the real deal! The fourth CD offering from this “acoustic” duo (Johnson, lead guitar and Fritz, rhythm guitar and vocals) from Ft. Worth is quite possibly their best yet. Considering the prolific and highly regarded back catalog, “best yet” is no easy feat. Check out youtube videos of the tracks “Drunk As Hell,” “Jim Beam and Me,” and “Wookie Pussy” for examples of previous greatness and fan devotion. The Wicked Roots is the second WHISKEYDICK CD produced by Kurtis D. Machler at Austin’s own Million Dollar Sound Recording Studio. The barebones instrumentation consisting of one rock-solid acoustic rhythm guitar, one acoustic but sometimes very electrified lead guitar and one powerfully HUGE voice is all that is necessary to get this robust, urban-country sound across. This record is an excellent representation of what these guys do to rooms nightly across the country and frequently in Austin for lucky patrons of Headhunt”

“A lean, vicious country-rock machine from Fort Worth, Texas.Whiskeydick are Fritz and Johnson, two tattooed nutters who got drunk on a case of Jim Beam one night, and decided that country music needed to go back to its outlaw roots.So, they left their previous metal bands behind, got into mixing up Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Black Label Society, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pantera, and went down the road to salvation, via Hell.The pair sing about drinking, smoking, raising cane, getting kick out of bars and thrown in jail. They do close to 200 shows per year, and have just released an album called Rebel Flags And Whiskey on their own label, appropriately called 1st Class White Trash.These guys are the sort who wrap their bikes around a lamp-post, and then get high on the exhaust fumes. ”
