Self produced demo
Trail To Hell - That's Right - Under Vultures - Lonely Nights
Hailing from Germany this trio plays a mixture of wild rockabilly and what is now called old school psychobilly which tends to be rare this days with bands that are playing either “authentic” rockabilly or modern psychobilly with nothing in between. They aren’t really newcomers as they started in the 80’s, had an album on Tombstone Record in 1989 (Outlaw) and supported acts like The Guana Batz, The Stray Cats, The Keytones and The Frantic Flintstones. On hiatus for a few years the band is back and is ready to rock your house. The slap bass led mid-tempo “Trail To Hell” has a fine cowboy ballad feel. The singer’s voice on this one reminds me a bit of the dutch bands The Tigermen and their song “Gone, Gone, Gone” for those who remember them. “That’s Right” is maybe more classical, a fast rocker with a psycho edge but nonetheless very pleasant. Under Vultures is a new version of a song from their Outlaw lp, and has that fine 80’s neo-rockabilly in the chorus I like so much with backing vocals and stop-starts with slap bass solos. This too short demo ends with “Loneley Nights” a slow tempo with a bluesy feel. The overall production work is very well done and the songs are all written by the band. Now, let’s hope they’ll soon have a full length, with added as bonus their now deleted first album.
