The Alabama Take Podcast – Episode 46 – Philip Shouse

In this episode of the podcast, I’m talking to Philip Shouse. If you were around North Alabama in the late ’90s then you probably remember Subterriffic Chug-A-Lug out of Decatur.


We talked about his time with that band and where he ended up for a few years after he moved to Nashville. He co-founded Thee Rock and Roll Residency in Nashville around 2014 that lasted for several years. Then he got the chance to go on tour with one of his heroes – Gene Simmons. What was supposed to be 5 gigs turned into a couple of years worth of touring. Hear all about, touring with Ace Frehley, and his company  – Mutt Merch – in this episode.

The podcast is also available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, etc…

  1. Dude!! Great show! I’d Never heard of this podcast before. Jeff Sharp posted it on the BookFace…..
    BUT….. Philip and I go waaaaaay back to the Sub-T, The Herzogs, from our Auburn Brit-pop band tongue-in-cheek named “Hello”. I was the photo taking guy back in the late 90’s and I used to have these pics of Phil I wished I kept. Of him doing his model-esque hair throw… silly shit. But I’m glad I lost those because he could easily be blackmailed for some of them.
    Phil and I told everybody we were gonna “make it” and drove across the country to L.A. to try and make it big. We left with like 8 or 9 dudes. One group was the amazing B-ham based band before they were “Through the Sparks.” We had an AMAZING Piano player, guitarist, and song writer. And he turned out to be a real piece of shit who never showed up and left us high and dry. We drove back across the country in Phils Honda two-door Accord and he said as we were leaving Arizona from a shitass holiday inn, “Man, I’m gonna make it one day. I hope we can do it together, but dude, I’m gonna do it.”

    I always knew my friend would be something special. And funnily enough, I text him the day before this podcast and told him that I was so proud that he had made all right decisions to be the musician he deserves to be. He totally deserves everything that happened with Gene, Ace, and Thee RnRR.

    I love that dude like a big brother and miss being able to have crazy conversations about how awesome music is and quoting Mr. Show…
