Many a mile has been travelled searching for the finest bands on the scene and after a lot of diggin weve come up with an exclusive mixture that is nothing but HOT hot enough in fact to make this silver platter burn right through the sleeve so watch out everybody!
Some of the bands featured here are firm favorites on the rockin circuit while others are still on their way up to stardom. If you like your musical dish served the strictly authentic way just dig names like Eddy & The Backfires, Mark Kelf & The Valley Boys, HotnCold, Mars Attacks, Roy Kay Trio, Dusty Gray, Jesse Al Tuscan & The Lumberjacks or Russ Be Bop & The Roadrunners. And for those of you who want the goods delivered with a distinctly modern touch, weve got Raik & the Chainballs, The Caravans, Chrome Daddies, Rancho Deluxe or Ray Thompson & The Invisible Rays to get you in the groove. Then again some bands such as 45 RPM, Cordwood Draggers or Rhythm Train lean heavily towards hillbilly rhythms while others such as Johnny Kansas & The Capers go for the teen beat sound or even late 50s sounds as featured by The Count IV. And then there are those who just blast out their all-out rockin sounds: Pete & The Atomics, Mark Lee Allan & The Driver Brothers, The Planet Boppers and The Rizlaz well, what more need we say?. To top it off, bands like The Houserockers or The Voodoo Shakers throw in a hefty dose of roughhouse rockin blues. All these bands, whether they hail from France, Australia, Wales, Japan, Austria, Scotland, Switzerland, Germany, England or the United States, have one thing in common: a real love for rhythms weird and bizarre and for hypnotic guitar riffs in short, ROCKABILLY !!!!!
