The Fendermen

Madison, Wisconsin’s Fendermen (guitarist-vocalists Jim Sundquist and Paul Humphries) hit the Top 10 in 1960 with their crazed, hiccupping, moonshine-soaked version of Jimmie Rodgers’s “Mule Skinner Blues.” Though the uproarious tune (first out on the local Cuca label and later re-cut for Minneapolis’s Soma Records) was largely seen as a nonsensical novelty at the time, it’s now regarded as a proto-punk classic, a pivotal recording that visibly bridges the gap between rockabilly and garage rock—and natural cover bait for trash masters the Cramps, who covered the Fendermen’s arrangement of “Mule Skinner Blues” in 1990.
