Over the years Eddy & The Backfires have earned a rep as one of Europe's top rockabilly bands.Thier brand of rockabilly is considered pretty authentic as well as hard driving and exciting.One just has to check out any of their 3 albums to realize that.Despite a few line up changes this is a band that always ups their game.The current line up has been together since 2015 and is arguably their strongest That said the outfits last album "Cat Killer"was released back in 2006.So it's been a hell of a long time coming for new materiel.Well the wait is over and boy these cats aren't holding any thing back. Their new and 4th album "Dead Man Stare" is a real cracker that will have you up and shakin'. This puppy burns up the joint with 15 tracks of pure wild ,hard hitting rockabilly. It grabs you ,pulls you in and doesn't let go.With the exception of a couple tracks this is a pedal to the metal ride and you gotta like that.Highlights include: "V8 Gang" , "Highway Killer", "Shoot My Baby", "The Cleaner" and "
Go Down That Road"
Simply put " Dead Man Stare" is one of best albums this year.This is stout rockabilly that scores a direct hit.It also gives you a big bang for your buck and leaves you wanting more. Highly recommended!! https://www.facebook.com/eddyandthebackfires/
Since blasting out of Redditch, England in the spring of 2015 The Dead Shots have managed to get a rep as an exciting and kool rockabilly/rock n roll outfit.Hell word of mouth on these cats has been all positive.The band's self-titled debut album backs up the buzz about them and more.This puppy blazes in with 7 originals and 3 covers of pretty stout modern rockabilly/ rock n roll that will have you up and at it.They also throw shades of the blues into the mix and that gives the ride a little more thrust.Highlights include"Boppin Gal", "Mean Eyed Women", "One Of These Days" and "Lovin' Man"
Emerging out of the industrial wastelands of Ruhrpott (in late 2013) comes Psycho Farm Aka (PFK) an interesting and stout rockin' psychobilly outfit.These cats play old school psychobilly and aren't afraid to mix things up.Their debut album "Something Psychotic is proof of that.Instead of rushing out their debut affair, they took the time and delivered a killer disc with a refreshing flare.We get 13 tracks of kool old school psychobilly that border on neo- rockabilly at times.Add into the mix a little whack of the blues and the results will cure your ills.Sure we get some of the horror angle here but no two tracks sound alike and that makes for a better album.Highlights include: "Psychofarmaka",The Sin", "Warpath", Cut Across Shorty" and "U.F.O."
