Ants in Your Pants

Produced by Don Dixon, this CD features our dear friend Steve Ferguson, the original guitarist for NRBQ.

Long Live the Queen

Recorded live in 1996 as a demo for the Ants tour of Moscow, this CD adds Telecaster-master Robert Shafer to the Ants lineup. Tracks range from the feel-good soul of “I Can’t Stand It No Longer” and “I Want to Know” to the country-rock “If I Could” and the rockabilly “Daddy Y’ar.”

The Amazing Delores was a West Virginia original. A rock ’n’ soul screamer, she could turn a club upside down and inside out. This disc, originally released by Rounder subsidiary Upstart, is nothing but timeless. On songs like “Stop Messin’ With My Mind,” “Rats in My Trailer” and “Do the In and Out,” her lyrics are as out-there as her singing style. In a review of the CD, the late Cub Koda quipped: “Whatever you got in your collection, you ain’t got one of these.”
