There are dozens of bands playing the Neo-Rockabilly style of music, but
many ends up sounding like Psychobilly or even hardcore punkabilly. Well, Las Pistolas are different. The group actually plays really red hot modern sounding rockabilly music, and listening to their debut album I realized how I like that 'classic' neo-rockabilly sound.
The album consist of 6 songs, so it's a mini album and is a wonderful introduction to this British 'billies.
The first song 'Pros & Cons' is probably the 'heaviest' on sound, but the excellent Gretch guitar playing of Benny The Rooster keeps it real and clear of fuzz. Other 5 songs are similar in sound, but have their own distict melodies and catchy choruses. All three instruments on the disc play their important role without overpowering one another. The punchy double bass carries the mood of the songs, the guitar masterfully shapes the band's sound and drums glue it
all toghether. Las Pistolas take a new twist on classic neo-rockabilly and make a fantastic job of it!
Las Pistolas 'The Legend Begins' CD is for greased-up rockers and neo-rockabilly fans.
