Long tall Texans
Should I Stay Or Should I Go(1988)
Two track 7´´ single from Razor Records. Side 1 is their well-known cover versions of the Clash classic, backed by their early fan favorite Indians. Track list: Should I Stay Or Should I Go--Indians.
The first longplayer of the British Psychobilly trio. Most of the songs got some 50´s Rockabilly background like their cover versions of My Babe and Long Tall Texan. But Mark Carew´s slapping versatilities compensate a lack of tempo. Other highlights are Get Up And Go, Mad About You , Poison and Rockin´Crazy.
Los Me Boleros (1987)
Though better known for their live acts, the Texans proved with this 7-track Mini album that they can transport the power from their gigs into the studio too. Loaded with pure energy and catchy tunes, this album brings you tons of fun. Highlights: Gotta Go, Indians, Texas Beat and Off My Mind.
Five Beans In The Wheel(1989)
This is a real classic live album. There´s no real chance to get a Texans gig on vinyl, but this one comes real close. It includes all their early classics and gives you the feeling of the meaning of a Texans gig back in the good old eighties. Highlights: Don´t I Know It, Bloody, Indians, Right First Time and Should I Stay Or Should I Go.
This is the third longplayer of the LTT, originally released in 1989 on Razor Records. It features some of their classics and is without doubt loaded with the Long Tall Texans´ unique mixture of Neobilly & fun. It also includes a new version of their 1988 single release Get Back, Wetback. Other highlights are Don´t I Know It, Cairo and Bloody.
Singing To The Moon(1991)
"Singing To The Moon" was the last album that featured Mark Denman. The sound is a unique mix of Rockabilly, Psychobilly and Ska. Though this one isn´t quite as spectacular as some of the other released albums, it´s still a good investement for your collection. Highlights: Singing To The Moon, Suicide At The Seaside and Klub Foot Shuffle.
This album features the unreleased Northwood EP & bonus tracks. All of the eleven tracks are demo songs from the years 1985/1986, including two different versions of Ballroom Blitz. This album is essential for all Long Tall Texans fans at least and gives you an inside look to their Rockabilly roots. Highlights: Indians, Texas Beat, Rockin´Crazy and Get Up & Go.
The Adventures Of The Long Tall Texans(2005)
More than ten years after their last regular release, the new adventures of the Long Tall Texans are available. Solid rocking album with a typical Texans blend of different musical styles. Among my favorite songs is a new recorded version of I´ve Seen Her ,which was original issued on the Rockin It Up compilation. Other highlights are Dayz Of Having Fun, Get Your Feet Outta My Shoes and It Really Doesn´t Bother Me.
