56 Killers - The Last Of The Outlaws 2016


The  56 Killers rock,hell any band that has members of The Caravans will.Since forming in 2011, the band has had a few lineup changes and for the last couple of years it has remained stable and pretty strong.There is a whack of pedigree here folks.Their surefire brand of neorockabilly/r&b is nothing short of hip shaking rock n roll done really well.You what proof just check out their debut album " The Last Of The Outlaws". This puppy confidently struts in with12 tracks that deliver a knock out punch of hard hitting billy/rock n roll. It's tough but not in your face and you gotta like that. Highlights include: " Oh Wot A Shame", "Bullfrog Blues", "Killer Baby Boogie" and a freakin' kool  cover of Dr. Feelgood's "Milk & Alcohol "

   Over all  "The Last Of The Outlaws" is one kool blast of rock n roll that guarantees plenty of  repeated listening.Hell even your kids and your dog will think you are kool when you play this,it's that good Highly recommended!! https://www.facebook.com/56Killers/ 
                   

The Rhythm Torpedoes - Hop In The Ride 2016


Hailing from Marburg, Germany  comes the pretty kool outfit The Rhythm Torpedoes, who have been knocking out "ass kickin' rock n roll"/rockabilly  since 2011.To most of us(including me) here in North America these cats pretty much went unnoticed,that is until last year when videos of the band started to appear.With that a small buzz started about them and continues to grow .This is one stout band that you gotta check out.The band's debut album  "Hop In The Ride" has just dropped and this puppy takes no prisoners.Barrelling in with 15 tracks (12 originals) of  wild and raw rockabilly/rock n roll that makes you stand up and take notice. We also get a little side of country to boot just to mix things up .This is totally in Wild Records territory but it is on the Boom Chicka Boom label.Highlights include:  "Harbor Chick", "De Bop","Hell Again","Booze,Booze,Booze" and "Hop In The Ride"
           
   The Rhythm Torpedoes  have delivered a very strong debut album with "Hop In The Ride". This is a killer ride that is a times urgent ,wild and a whack of fun that leaves you wanting more. Highly Recommended!!

A Tribute to Nigel Lewis - The Guv'nor V/A Diablo Records 2016




When it comes to tribute albums it's either hit or really a big miss.Hell a lot of them leave you thinking why bother.After all it all comes down to the artist in question, if the material covered is strong and the bands paying tribute are good.Saying that it's about time someone did a Nigel Lewis tribute.The  guy is a legend from The Meteors,The Escalators,The Johnson Family to The Tall Boys and The Zorchmen, he has been  and is still a major influence when it comes to psychobilly. All this leads me to the new release by Diablo Records ,"A Tribute to Nigel Lewis "The Guv'nor " and this is one sweet puppy .We get 12 tracks by 12 bands (and not all from the Diablo label) of psychobilly and rock n roll madness.There isn't a weak track here and in most cases the tracks are elevated and some come off as originals.Each band really does put their own spin on the proceedings and that makes this an interesting and enjoyable ride.Highlights include: The Marksmen- "Brand New Gun",The Magnetic - "Satellite Baby", The Zipheads doing a ska inspired  version of "Earwigs In My Brain" and The Guitar Slingers doing "Ride This Torpedo"
 
    
 From top to bottom this is one stout album,that covers all of Nigel Lewis's career  .There are some truly  classic songs here as well as some  lesser known tracks that surprisingly  bring it on.As far as tribute albums go ,it doesn't get much better than this.A deserving artist,great source material and a whack of kool top shelf bands make this a standout album and a must have.Highly recommended!!!
 1. The Highliners - My Daddy Is A Vampire
02. The Doppelgangers - Last House On The Left
03. The Marksmen - Brand New Gun
04. Doyley & The Deadbeats - Took A Long Time
05. The Magnetix - Satellite Baby
06. Spellbound - Rockabilly Psychosis
07. Moonshine Stalkers - Final Kick
08. Clockwork Psycho - Don't Fuck Around With Me
09. The Zipheads - Earwigs In My Brain

The Kings of Outer Space - Space Invaders 2016


The Kings of Outer Space have officially re-landed  and as in the past they have brought with them a pretty damn kool bag of goodies.It's been 3 years  since they released their last effort, the stellar "How To Fly A Rocket", a slice of modern rockabilly/rocknroll that was just straight out kool.With the release of "Space Invaders" The The Kings of Outer Space are back and better than ever.Coming in with 12 tracks (including 2 covers and 2 live tracks) that are sure fired winners.We get the usual "Cosmic Psycho Rockabilly" with a splash of ska and garage.Right from the start this puppy is strong and doesn't let up.You have to be impressed with the freshness and diversity of the album.Highlights include: "Girl On The Moon" ,"Space Invaders" ,"Remainder Men", "Zombie Walk" and "Cosmic Boy"
 
    The Kings of Outer Space may be a "modern rockabilly" band but they are also more than that.This is a band that's not afraid to stray off course and that makes them a stronger outfit.These kats are damn good and "Space Invaders"bares that out. This puppy pays out big and is one of the years best! Highly recommended !!!
