Psycho Farm Aka - Something Psychotic 2017


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."
 
       Overall "Something Psychotic" is one impressive debut album that packs a punch and is a blast of rockin' fun.But beware this puppy will grow on you .Highly recommended.

Raccoons - All Draped Up 2016


Tasmania is not a place one would associate with teddyboy rock n roll.However it's the home of the Raccoons  a long standing and underrated teddyboy inspired rockabilly band.These cats have been  kickin' around  down under for more than a few years now. They  managed  too catch the ear of Raucous Records with their "tough wiry sound" and in  2014 they released the ep "Slowburn". In late 2016 the band unleashed their debut album "All Draped Up". Slowly but surely it has gained traction and rightfully so.This puppy nails it  and comes in with 12 originals of teddyboy/rockabilly action that push the fold.From mid tempo burners to all out rockers  this is one confident and kool  ride.Highlights include: "Sirens And Chrome", "Backhander", "Snarlin' Darlings" and "On Your Bike"
     What's really kool about " All Draped Up " is that it's more than a straight teddyboy /rockabilly album and as a result it is a hard driving and refreshing jolt. It's all good and you should give this a spin. Recommended!!!

Sandy & The Wild Wombats - Devoted To Rock 'n' Roll 2017



Back in 2015 Sandy and The Wild Wombats firmly establish themselves with the release of their debut album "The Girl Can't Help It". Sure it was all covers but it was loaded with some freakin' sweet interpretations.It also helps that this is a stout outfit that knows how to deliver.This is rockabilly that has been described as dirty, wild, has an edge and is fronted by some smokin' hot vocals.Now the band's follow up album " Devoted To Rock'n'Roll"  is here and man have they upped the anti.This puppy comes snarling in with 12 originals that with the exception of 1 ballad, really rock out . It's 50's rockabilly/ rock n roll that pushes into neo-rockabilly with shades of blues and country thrown' in too boot.There is also a hidden track that's a honky tonk number.Highlights include : "I Gotta Move", "Cure Your Ill", "Rockabilly  Man, and "Hey Hey Hey".
       Overall "Devoted To Rock 'n' Roll" is one impressive disc that is top shelf. It's fun, aggressive and packs a punch. If Sandy & The Wild Wombats weren't on your radar before they should be now .This is a damn good album by a band  that's on a mission. Highly Recommended!

Satan's Pilgrims - Siniestro 2017


Few surf band's have had the impact that Satan's Pilgrims have.This Portland outfit has and is hugely influential in the surf scene .So it is big news when they release a new record especially since it's been over 8 years since their last release of new music.That last outing  of new material  was 2009"s " Psychsploitation",which is considered to be a landmark surf album.Now in 2017 they have stepped out of the shadows with "Siniestro" and this puppy is freakin' sweet. This time out they get back to the basics: traditional surf with the right amount of aggression. We get 15 original  tracks here that at times show restrain and still pack a punch.As in the past ,their 3 guitar attack  gives the band a full crisp,surf sound that will color you impressed.Highlights include: "The Juggernaut", "Uphill Scramble","Short Sand Surf" and "Siniestro"
      
               Getting right to the point here : "Siniestro" is a flat out stout and kool album.Not only is this a stellar surf  album it's also one of the years best in any genre and you can take that to the bank.Highly recommended !!!!

The Highliners - Action Man 2017




The Highliners have been at it off and on now for almost 33 years .In that time they achieved some major success and have developed a loyal and constantly growing fan base. With a few  line up changes and other hiccups they have always been a pretty good rock n roll/psychobilly band  .Hell just look at the current line up ,it's stacked with some serious pedigree : original member Luke Morgan, long time member Ginger Meadham  and new comers Andy Kandil and Lilit Clockwork .The Highliners have always been  stacked  but the key to band's success is that they are and remain a fun band at heart with a great sense of humor .The term "funobilly"probably started with them.Their latest release "Action Man " bares that out in spades.This puppy is a blast of fresh air that clocks in at under 25 minutes of kool action.As usual it's a great mix of rock n roll, psychobilly, and punk.We get 10 tracks here, some of which are on the band's 2014 live recording "The Diablo Sessions" and 2013's "Gravedigger Stomp" ep( both on Diablo Records). Highlights include: "Baby Is A Psycho", "Minicab Minicab","Frank The Quiff" and "Cheapsuit Boogie"
 
  
    Overall " Action Man " this is just what one would expect from The Highliners and that's a good thing.This is a  pretty sweet  refreshingly fun ride that packs punch.Your gonna want to grab this puppy.Highly recommended !!

The Devils Deuce - Supercharged 2017


For been a new band The Devils Deuce(from Cornwall,England) have made a whack of noise in just a short time.Late last year they released the damn smart ep "Passion Pit" that got more than a few people excited .This rockabilly /neorockabilly outfit likes to open up the throttle and kicks butt They also mean business and don't like wasting time.As a result they have just dropped their debut album "Supercharged" and it's pretty sweet.This puppy rushes in with 15 kool tracks(2 from the ep) of "high octane rockabilly"/neorockabilly that rock out and will have you up and moving.This really gives you a big bang for your buck and is loaded with fun killer tracks.Highlights include: "Cool Cat Died","Live For The Weekend","Run" and "Wiped Out"

    From start to finish "Supercharged" hits the mark and delivers a refreshing blast rockabilly that leaves you wanting more.It's a stout album all the way around and one you'll be glad you picked up.Hell your better half will really think your kool when you lay this on them.Highly recommended!!

Klax - Last Zyborg 2017


It's been around 5 years now since the Texan Psycho's Klax released their fine debut album "Recycle-Billy". A more than solid slab of old school inspired psychobilly that put them on the map.Over the past few years they have kept pretty busy and have managed to garner a strong following.Now Klax is back with their sophomore album " Last Zyborg" and this time out the game has changed in a big and ballsy way.Instead of staying the course they have slammed on the breaks and veered into  meaner,darker and more aggressive psychobilly. Add into the mix cyber punk and some shades of thrash and the result is one powerful and impressive album.But here's the real kicker : this is a sci-fi themed concept album about  lazy humans,androids and cyborgs in a bleak,corrupt future.You got to give it to Klax not just for trying this but also for pulling it off. The story is told in 10 chapters that move at a kinetic pace and hold your attention from start to finish. Also pretty much each track(chapter) can stand on it's own and that makes the album even stronger.
 
      Klax have really put themselves out there with "Last Zyborg" and the result is pretty damn kool .One can argue that  in someways this is a groundbreaking album for psychobilly.Some will debut that but no matter how you cut it this is a killer album with a story to tell. Highly Recommended!

The Sirocco Brothers - Come On In 2017


Not much is known about The Sirocco Bros. but one thing for sure is that they are simply a killer band(duo) that's all about the music.Many folks have wasted a lot time trying to figure out who these cats but let's face it,the fact that they very mysterious is kinda refreshing in this age of information over load.That said their dark brew of rockabilly,blues and roots is at times stunning, always haunting and stays with you.It's almost guaranteed that if you give them a listen, you'll be hooked. With a whack of stellar singles ,a couple of ep's and yes 2 albums ("Sirocco" and "Shake") under their belts they have become and rightfully so a big deal to many.The band's(duo) latest offering " Come On In" only cements their growing reputation.This puppy is a loaded gun of 16  powerful tracks that stay the course.So you know we get the usual dark, unique, authentic  mix of rockabilly,rock n roll  and blues.Also once again we get their latest singles and some new songs here. There really isn't a weak track to be found Highlights include: "Dead Bandidos","Bop", "The Drifter" (with Cousin Morgan)with , "Alcatraz" and "Hoo Doo"(with Alice Jayne).

         The Sirocco Bros. have delivered another winner with "Come On In"and it's easily one of the best releases of 2017.This is very stout and impressive outing that is a must have.Highly recomended !!!!

Ghoultown - Ghost Of The Southern Son 2017


Funny thing about Ghoultown is that some of the nicest people I know really dig them and a lot of people you think wouldn't even know who they are also like them.But then again it should come as a surprise since their tales of western madness, mayhem and horror pretty much blur and destroy genre lines in a big way.Hell ask 10 folks what  the Ghoultown sound is and you'll probably get 10 diffident responses.From gothabilly, outlaw country to southern rock ,psychobilly,metal and more. These cats are very  unique and also damn good.The band' last album of new material, "Life After Sundown" was way back in 2008.After that there was a single(2008), an ep(2009) and a rarity album(2012) .Fans of the band have been itching  for their return and now they have in a big way. That said the band's new album "Ghost Of The Southern Son" (their 5th studio album) is one very impressive outing that brings it on.We get 13  tracks that for the most part are  hard rockin', way kool spaghetti western mayhem with that trumpet. There is no rust here and  Ghoultown are in fine form here.With the exception of one ballad , this puppy  moves and groves along pretty good.  Highlights include: " Ghost Of The Southern Son" ," Blood,Bullets and Whiskey", "I Am The Night" and the sweet and killer "Cuchillo".
   
One has to be impressed by "Ghost Of The Southern Son",it's a  damn  stout comeback album and also one of their best.This puppy grabs you by the scuff of your neck and then stares you down.Recommended!!!
