The Raid(1984)

This is a pure collector´s item, originally distributed on 12´´ vinyl by Nervous Records. This is some sort of vanguard and progressive Psychobilly, a furious and unique blend of Rockabilly, Psycho, New Wave  and Eighties Pop music. Tracklist: The Raid-- Silver Bullet-- High Noon-- Eighties Girl.

 

Turningpoint(1985)

Outstanding album from one of the genre´s most underrated outfits. The five piece band around lead vocalist Lee Gocher blended straight, fast Rockabilly music, some Eighties New Wave/Pop with progressive lyrics for an experimental, very special sort of Psychobilly. The re-release on CD includes three more tracks-- the A-side of The Raid plus Scratch Chicken Scratch, that originally appeared on Hell´s Bent On Rockin´--. Highlights: The Man From Yesterday, The Good-The Bad And The Ugly, Night Out With The Boys, Hot Rod Blues and Swords Of A Thousand Men.
