Domestic Bumblebees, The
Submitted by kitti (20 July 2008)
The Domestic Bumblebees... It was only some months ago that I first heard this name - interesting, unusual, easy to remember, impossible to forget... finally it has nothing to do with cats, rockers, hot rods, rockin', boppin' and different kind of billies. Well, as soon as I saw they must play in De Kroeg...
Keytones, The
Submitted by kitti (23 December 2008)
Do you believe in perfection? Do you believe that nowadays you can find a perfect band? To be honest, I didnítÖ until I saw The Keytones live in Caddyís Diner (Holland). The plan was to go out and fool around with my friends (you know - drink some beer or few, have a chat, maybe...
Mystery Train
Submitted by kitti (15 June 2010)
The Mystery Train was officially born 30 years ago (in 1980), even though the guys started playing together three years before that. As it usually happens, the members were changing, but the bass player (Ari Hanninen) stayed in the band all the time. Singles and EPís were realeased during bandís musical life and finally...

Cat Pack
Submitted by rockabilly_girl (01 February 2007)
Magnificent first full-length album from the rockin' rollin' rhythm & blues orchestra known as the cat pack! Masterful arrangements and superb musical performances, with excellent featured vocalists belting out a mix of jump jiving rock 'n' roll, swing and jump blues classics and originals.

Put your dancing shoes on, the new 'Texabilly Rockets' album is here! This latest release from the Portugese quartet is made up from 19 tracks, mostly self penned, but also including such classics like 'All I Can Do Is Cry', 'Stack-A-Records' and Riverside Trio's 'Hold Me, Love Me, Squeeze Me' which they perform brilliantly. Mainly...
Various Artists
Submitted by rockinbones (04 May 2007)
What can I say, this is a real Ronseal of an album - it does EXACTLY what it says on the tin! Just look at the track listing, it doesn't NEED a review. Some wise person has gathered together all those vinyl compilations that got youngsters like me into the music in the late seventies and...

J.p. Mcdermott And Western Bop
Submitted by gatorrock (05 September 2007)
A fantastic debut album that proves what the Washington D.C.-area honky-tonk crowd already knows -- J.P. is for real. McDermott can really sing and the band really rocks. It's easy to tell a lot of hard work and love for the music went into this. J.P.'s acoustic guitar drives the train and Bob Newscaster's lead guitar...
Johnny Burnette & The Rock'n'roll Trio
Submitted by kitti (05 March 2009)
There is nothing to discuss about the music of Johnny Burnette and his RockíníRoll Trio, because everybody heard them thousands of times and knows that it is what we call a real rockíníroll. I want just to mention why exactly this one cd is so special. First of all this El Toro Records release contains 29...
Excellos, The
Submitted by rockinev (29 May 2009)
Well as promised elsewhere on the site here is the review of the debut album from The Execellos that I bought from the guys at Hemsby Rock n Roll Weekend. This Rocks, make no mistake about it, this is hard, dirty and rockin, they literally stormed Hemsby late on the Saturday afternoon. What suprises me...
Pat Capocci
Submitted by catzy (18 August 2013)
Australians are coming strong this year. Pat Capocci is one of the best and hard working guitarists at the scene. His brand new Call Of The Wild CD has got 14 killer tracks, all of them originals!!! They vary from pure wild rockabilly to stylish western swing with finger picking guitar. In some songs Pat's guitar...
Jack Rabbit Slim
Submitted by rockabilly_girl (24 April 2007)
Second album of Wild Wild Rockabilly from Jack Rabbit Slim. The first album was and is still selling like hot cakes, now the same story is being repeated by their latest release. In this album the band include a variety of styles, but sometimes is seams that the cats are trying to please everybody....

Submitted by rockabilly_girl (30 September 2007)
20 smashing rockabilly tracks make this brilliant compilation. The CD starts with The Woodchoppers' "45 Men in A Telephone Booth", an uptempo semi doo wop number, which just reflects the feeling of all compilation. This is followed by Rockin' Carbonara's version of Johnny Burnette's classic 'Rockabilly Boogie'. After this boppin' tune, girls can enjoy...

Submitted by rockabilly_girl (14 October 2008)
This British rockabilly combo has been playing hot music for 10 years already and have become favourites on the club scene, and "Wild & Pretty" is their only their 4th album in this time.
