THEY BEST SIDE PROJECT ANY OF THE GUYS HAVE EVER DONE!!!!! Dug sounds like he is having so much fun on every song - his vox are stronger than ever - no weird overwhelming bass tone. Any KX fan must run out and get this immediately!!!

Picked it up the day it was released. It's a great album (the cover is dumb, though). Doug definitely has done some great stuff outside of the band. His two "Dug" albums and the two Poundhound albums are excellent. I like how on this album they have the studio version of some songs, followed by a live free jam version. Very cool idea.
Ty Tabor's solo stuff is good, too, but pretty laid back. Supershine and Platypus and The Jelly Jam are right up there, too. Do you have Jerry Gaskill's Come Somewhere? I don't own that one; I'm wondering what it sounds like. Nor do I the Jughead and The Mob albums. I want them and the internet-only albums the band has released.

TheMob is total 80's hair metal, if you can believe that. Totally kickass! Jughead leans toward Platypus, and Gaskills album could have been written and performed by the Beatles. But, being KX is probably my second or third fav band ever, you'll never hear me say anything negative about anything they do or have done. Do you agree on my opinion of SSU being the best side project any of them have done?

Right on. Who's the chick, your wife? And is Doug just being goofy, or has he just inserted something into your booty hole?
As for Strum Sum Up, I don't know if it's the best yet. It is killer, but I think I still like Supershine the best. That's a great album! And if The Mob is frickin' hair metal I may have to declare that one the best right now! Haha.
You've got me itching to complete my collection now. Haha.

'Strum Some Up' is good, but hasn't quite hit me as hard as the 2 PH albums or even 'Emotional Animal'...I am giving it more listens though.
Yeah, Jerry's album is a little weird, like later Beatles...but cool.
All of Ty's stuff, solo/Platypus/Jelly Jam/Jughead is awesome!
The Mob kicks ass!
