Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim — the minds behind the hilariously warped public access-inspired Adult Swim series Check It Out! With Dr. Steve Brule (starring John C. Reilly as the title host) and Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! — also perform as the AM radio-leaning "Southern" jam band, Pusswhip Banggang. The band premiered in an infomercial segment on Awesome Show for its "best of" cassette, featuring songs like "Fudge Man" and "Kiss Me Once, Shame On You, Kiss Me Twice (Let's Party)." It's the kind of terribly non-self-aware hippie dad rock one might find in the corner of a fictional New Orleans bar, so it's fitting the "band" is exclusively performing in the South for its 2014 "Swamp Rock" tour (a total of three shows in Georgia, Alabama and Louisiana). Expect to hear other Awesome Show hits, like the unnecessary prog-rock anthem "Brownie Mountain" and the sloppy ballad "Poke On." Chicago record label Drag City (home of Joanna Newsom, Silver Jews and comedians Neil Hamburger and Fred Armisen) will release Pusswhip Banggang's Jambalaya 12-inch record on June 24 — recipe included.
