Put this on loud and hold tight! Could Bob and the boys follow Sleazabilly? Well the answer is a resounding yes. These guys take the original 50's energy of raw rockabilly and inject it with some 21st century 'sleaze'. During the course of the album there are clear references to Buddy Holly, Johnny Burnette and other original greats. But it's their own brand of rockin that sets this album alight. Petrolhead is a brilliant hotrodding track with a huge sound, I defy you not to turn up it up loud in the car and wind the windows down. Bikini Bull Ridin' Baby is a humorous sleazy track and Daddy's Got a Gun brings the 50's teenage angst of James Dean 'bang' up to date. The suprise track though is Wolf Call, a cover of an Elvis soundtrack number from Girl Happy, Bob's rendition is brilliant, it was always a favorite at the Hemsby Elvis week and I wonder if this is where Bob got the idea to cover it from? A must have album, I saw the guys play the set of the weekend at the recent Rockabilly Rave, here's to more sleazey albums soon, till then I'll just let this play again.
