Pharaohs

Blue Egypt(1986)

"Blue Egypt" is the first Pharaohs´ album, originally released on Nervous records back in1986. Though it sounds some kind of chaotic from time to time, it´s a brilliant reflection of the mid-80´s Psychobilly music. Based on their strong Rockabilly roots, the Pharaohs knew how to add a lot of other subjects into their music. Highlights: Tomb Of The Dead, Radar Love, Dead To The World and Killed Love.

Hammer & Sickle Blues(1988)

This 12 track album is another borderline mix between uptempo Neorockabilly and Psychobilly. It contains Pharaohs songs from  the years 1983-1988. The tempo of the songs differs from the slow, cuddling 57 Chevy to the super fast Psycho Numbskull. Other highlights are the cover versions of Baby Let´s Play House and Don´t Get Me Wrong plus the new recorded version of Dead To The World.

London 1988(2000)

Great rockin´ album from the UK-billies around front man Glenn Daeche. The album was distributed by Crazy Love and includes 13 tracks. The lineup- including Mark Pennington (b) and Ritchie Taylor (d)- produced a melodic, catchy sound making you disbelieve that the Pharaohs haven´t released an album for twelve years. Among the best songs are a new recorded version of the dance floor classic Turkey Dance and some cool cover versions like Iggy Pop´s The Passenger or Roy Orbison´s Domino. Other highlights are Vincent Van Go Go and Worth Waitin´For.
