Cadillac Angels - Playin' With Firedotdotdotdot
artworkThe new Cadillac Angels CD finds the band in fine form, and Mickey Rae in stunning blond hair. This is just about the best modern rockabilly band out there. While only one instro graces the disc, it still finds plenty of time in my player. Like Link and Elvis and Carl all rolled into the finest trio around. Excellent vocals, menacing tone, infectious rhythms... what more do you need?

Outlaw Beatnik dotdotdotdot
Rockabilly (Instrumental)

Thundering Link Wray-ish intro with damped plucking verses and heavy danger. El distorto guitaro supported ably by bassundo fabuloso and drumbo deluxe. In surf you need a strong melody. In rockabilly, a mean riff and well timed playing makes it all happen. "Outlaw Beatnik" is perfectly evil.
