The Karl Hendricks Trio is a rock band from Pittsburgh. Formed in 1991, the band released 6 albums and toured relentlessly between 1991 and 1998. The Jerks Win Again shows a maturation and development from the band’s early years which presented a fervently confessional side of Hendricks. Hendricks' lyrics have become more outward-looking and his guitar playing has become more expansive. The band's performance, however, remain just as ardent, and, well, loud.
