WEEN recorded this cover of Champagne Jam by the Atlanta Rhythm Section for Bob Odenkirk and David Cross’s defunct serial “Mr. Show” “It was to be used in their full length movie “Run Ronny Run” which was based on a skit about a redneck named Ronnie Dobbs from Mr. Show. After a lot of internal bickering with the studio the movie was eventually released straight to video.” This tune is about as redneck/white-trash as it gets, and WEEN’s cover is spot-on perfect. Being that David Cross is from Atlanta he instinctively knew the perfect hick party anthem to set the stage for his movie.
