The Alligators - Rock, Bop, Jump! 2017



For years now,the Russian rockabilly scene  has been loaded with a whack of pretty good bands. Most of the bands get overlooked as it's hard to find out about them,especially over here in North America. One of those outfits, The Alligators has been making some big waves with their sweet and wild  "authentic rockabilly". They managed to catch the ear of Alan Wilson (Western Star Records)  and the result is their  stellar debut album," Rock, Bop, Jump!". This puppy confidently struts in with 16 tracks of kool rockabilly that will get you up and  moving.We get a good balance of originals and covers here that deliver more than a satisfying bang for your buck. For the most part this is all uptempo rockabilly and there isn't a weak track to be found.They also throw in a little hillbilly and some rock n roll flare into the mix .Highlights include: Goin' Strong", " All About You". ""Rock Bop Jump!","Sputnik" and "Bear Boogie Pub"
   
  Overall " Rock, Bop, Jump!"  is a top shelf effort  and a rockabilly album you should grab up From start to finish, this is a stout and enjoyable ride . Highly recommended !

The Wreck - Sailors Grave 2017



Just when you think it's safe to set sail,along comes The Wreck .A group of psycho pirates that aim to take over the seven seas .With a whack of mayhem and pedigree they fired off a very kool warning shot earlier this year with the"Nosferatu"single.Now there back with a barrage and looking to take no prisoners .The band's debut album "Sailors Grave" has just washed ashore and this puppy is a straight up winner.Clocking in with 12 rockin' tracks of old school psychobilly that will light a fire under your ass.This is fun and brisk  psychobilly that has a little twist of new wave. It's also a damn refreshing and powerful ride that will have you coming back for more.Highlights include: "Space Outlaw:, "Morphine" The Day The Earth Stood Still", "Attack Of The Giant Bumblebee" and the sweet "Axe To Beat".
     
     There was a some major anticipation for "Sailors Grave" and it's safe to say that The Wreck  have delivered big time here .This is one pirate's treasure you want to snag up.Highly recommended!!!

The Terrorsaurs - Swamp Beat 2017



 There are a lot of bands that claim to be primitive and raw rock n roll but few really are.The Terrorsaurs are that and more.Even since they crawled out of the primordial swamp back in 2009, these swamp rats have cough up 3 albums of savage and dangerous instrumental rock n roll.Just to amp things up they also throw in some garage and surf.The band's latest and 4th offering is the powerful "Swamp Beat" and this puppy really grabs the bull by the horns .We get 12 tracks of instrumental rock n roll  that hit damn hard and fast. Hell this is short ,sweet and to the point.It clocks in at  under 25 minutes, so you know they ain't  dickin' around here.At times it's menacing and trashy but it's all freaking kool. No bells and whistles here as this is  straight up and stripped down rock n roll that kills it.It's also their hardest and best album to date. Highlights include: "Gatnapped, "Freight Train", "Swamp Beat", "Boss Crawler" and "Snake Belly".
         
   With  "Swamp Beat" The Terrorsaurs have scored a direct hit .Lay this on the kool kid in your neighborhood, they will either hate you or think your the kool one. Highly recommended!!

The House Of Haunt - Habeas Corpses 2017



Over the last few years Toronto's psychos,House Of Haunt have earned a rep as a fun and very entertaining  live act.They also have upped their game with each release.This past year saw the band lose their keyboard player.Not standing still they went out and got themselves a guitar slinger. As a result, the band has a more beefier and rockin' attack. Their latest offering "Habeas Corpses"  backs that up.Clocking in with an opening statement followed by 8 tracks of psychobilly, then a closing sentencing (there is also 5 bonus live tracks too boot).Four of the tracks are older but have been rerecorded here and the other 4 are new . There is still some keyboard action but it no longer drives their sound.With the addition of the second guitar the band comes off tougher and better.  Overall it's a stout outing that has the band sounding better than ever. Highlights include:"Congo Cannibals", "Undead Man Walking", "The Hanged Man" and the kool  poppy inspired "Rum From The Black Lagoon".
   The House of Haunt are in transition on " Habeas Corpse.It's well balanced with the new tracks  highlighting the album.These cats  are open for business and they just got a little meaner. Recommended!
