The Raymen - Desert Drivedotdotdotdot
artworkThe Raymen can be loosely grouped with bands like Turkey Bones and the Wild Dogs and La Muerte, but exist closer to psychobilly than those bands. Aggressive and disturbed roots gone nuts. This 1986 LP includes an ultra tuff cover of "Pipeline."

Pipeline dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Fast and ultra intense, "Pipeline" opens with a single long sustained warbly note before crashing into a psychobilly driven madness. Very heavy, and likely inspired by Johnny Thunders' version, this is perhaps the most intense of all similar versions. I say similar, but there's really nothing quite like this. To call it aggressive is an understatement.
