The Raygun Cowboys - The Cowboy Code 2017


There are a few bands that pretty much everyone agrees are damn good and The Raygun Cowboys are one of them.These Edmonton cats are straight up top shelf as well as exciting, unique and a total blast of fresh air.Hell they can make a dead man move.If you have been lucky enough to see them live,you know what I'm saying. With every new album they seem to up their game and with their 6th and latest album " The Cowboy Code " they knock it out of the park.This time out they blow up the house with 11 tracks that will color you impressed.We get the get their signature sound : rockabilly driven by a killer horn section with a serving of punk and rock n roll. From the opening track to the final one this is a high energy and stout outing.Highlights include: " It's Coming Down", Let The Road Decide", the cover of SNFU's "Painful Reminder" and the freakin' kool "Robocop"

      With "The Cowboy Code " The Rayguns Cowboys have never sounded better yet they still sound hungry and as a result this is their best album yet( and that' saying something). This puppy is a must have.Highy recommended !!!!

Steve and The Ghosts Trio - Drunken Robot 2016


There are a lot of rockabilly bands releasing new albums these days and even for diehard fans it's impossible to keep on top of all the new music.As a result some real gems go under the wire, case in point: Steve and The Ghosts Trio  from France.These cats have been around for 5 years and have some pedigree.Their debut "Drunken Robot" came out a few months ago and kinda went unnoticed over here in North America. That's a shame because this is one pretty sweet slab of rockabilly.We get 8 strong originals and 8 kool covers here that will color you impressed.This is straight up rockabilly that times mixes it up with some neo rockbilly flare.From start to finish this puppy is one rocking and refreshing  outing. Only once do they ease up and that's for the slow burning "Last Night I Creid",(with banjo). Highlights include: "Drunken Robot", "You Blow My Top","The Rapist" and a kool cover of Wynn Stewart's "Come On"

      You  can't go wrong with "Drunken Robot",it is flat out good, really nails it and you gotta like that.Highly recommended !

Hellabama Honky Tonks - Barbershop of Death 2017


For 10 years now the German outfit Hellabama Honky Tonks have been dishing out some mighty fine  and fun rockabilly/ rock n roll. With 3 albums of  top shelf  "high octane hillbilly rock n roll"  under their belt, this is band that knows how to lay it down . It's also been around 5 years since there last release "Bang Boom Jubilee". So their latest offering "Barbershop of Death" has been along time coming.On this outing we get 13 tracks that again deliver the goods.This puppy hits the ground fast and  rocks out pretty good. From rockabilly to straight up rock n roll with some blues,a little country and shades of swing thrown in to spice things up.It's all good and has a sense of humor through out.All which makes for some fine listening.Highlights include: "When My Baby Gets Drunk","Leoslip Sally", "Hurricane Twist" and "Mean Woman"
   With "Barbershop of Death" the Hellabama Honky Tonks have struck again with another stout,fun and top shelf effort.Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for the album.Recommended!!!

Evil Elvis - Undead Or Alive 2017


 Evil Elvis is back and ready to spread more mayhem than ever. It's been around 6 years now since the impressive "Tattoo'd Fuckwit" surfaced and in that time, he and his band of renegades have gotten leaner and meaner.That said the new Evil Elvis album " Undead Or Alive "is now out and this puppy is another winner.For the most part we get 10 tracks of psychobilly that collide with revved up rock n roll and pack a punch.It's also a great follow up for "Tattoo'd Fuckwit" as  it's a little less heavy on the gas and more diverse, resulting in a stronger and better album. Highlights include: "My Evil","My Psycho Love", "Backseat Love" and "Too Fast For You"
        Evil Elvis and his band are in fine form here,hell this is one band that can more than hold their own.If you aren't familiar with Evil Elvis you should give "Undead Or Alive" a spin.Chances are your gonna like it .Recommended.

Los Tiki Phantoms - Aventuras En Celuloide 2017









  For over 12 years now Los Tiki Phantoms have been serving up some damn fine surf. In that time they have released 4 albums and 1 ep and have a world wide fan base that just keeps growing.Well there back with another killer album " Aventuras En Celuloide" .This time out we get 15 tracks inspired by the movies that leave you wanting more.With this outfit you just know what your getting, kool surf music that ranges from traditional to kinda poppy to garage.It's also always pretty sweet.On this outing they also throw in some spaghetti and some horns too boot . Highlights include: "El Baron Rojo", "Buencha","Kung Fu Tiki " ,"Winchester" and "Locos Sombre Ruedas"

 Once again Los Tiki Phantoms have delivered an excellent album with "Aventuras En Celuloide". This is a band that stays the course for the most part and still manages to come off refreshing and fun .You just can't go wrong with these cats.Highly recommended!
