Shut Up and Drive

The Drive-By Truckers ain't just whistling Dixie in their van

By this point, Hood is cackling so loud and hard that he sounds like he's choking. "That should make 'em go, 'Oh, shit! God really isn't a Republican! What do I do now?' "

For that matter, what do the Drive-By Truckers -- after three career-defining records in a row -- do now? Slow down, Hood says. The band has at the ready an album's worth of material that didn't fit the conceptual structure of Southern Rock Opera, and there may not be a better time for a leftovers record. But followed by what?

"We'll probably have to sit down and make a list of things we don't want it to be," Hood says. "We've talked a lot about doing away with the individual-writing thing and just getting everybody together and building a record that way. That seems like the next step in the evolution."
