Track by Track Review
Cool vibrato laden bison bop with ample twang. The melody line is minimal, like "Moon Dawg" or "Raw Hide," but the bridge and break are totally cool.
Sounds like the Bobby Fuller number, rhythmic and thundering, but not melodic. Powerful delivery and energetic as well.
Rockabilly instromania, B-side ecstasy and shredding glissandoes, coupled with dissonant destructo collisions. A real raver!
Chiyo and the Crescents ancient obscuro rechanneled into a more rockabilly version than Los Straitjackets do. Cool performance there, Eddie!
Hens teeth to you all! Raw live energetic barnyard tom foolery!
