Pinup of the week: Miss Bibi

Posted by Dee-Ann On July - 30 - 2018ADD COMMENTS 270 views

Photographer: James Berry

My uniqueness as a mom, wife and teacher just in a few words shows my sweet and sassy side like a 1950’s red Chevy with red and white interior riding along in South Florida. So being a girl from the hot city of Miami of beautiful bright colors and historic locations. Finding the pinup community in South Florida gave me the chance to express my old soul for vintage and natural beauty. I have been in the pinup community for about five years and learning everyday about myself and embracing the uniqueness of the 50’s. I didn’t decide one day “hey I want to start to dress like a girl from the 50’s”. As a child my mother always told me I had an old soul and love dressing like Audrey Hepburn and Carmen Miranda (just two of the many woman I admire), but I embraced the style behind the beauty of these women into my own unique style and sass. Being a pinup mom has not changed the way I parent because my boys are free spirited, enjoy life, old music and fast cars just like their momma. Being a mom, a wife, teacher and pinup is the best gift I have received and it all comes together like the sweet topping on a delicious peach cobbler eating on a warm sunny day.

Slapback Johnny – Hit me up (Album review)

Posted by Dee-Ann On July - 27 - 2018ADD COMMENTS 565 views

Slapback Johnny’s debut album Hit me up is out now! They have been hitting the stages since 2012, and now we can enjoy them in our very homes, cars or even at work. They have succeeded to grab their high speed energetic rockabilly together and press it into this album.

13 original songs written by Richard (drums) and Rex (Guitars), sung by Peter (double bass). Added horns by Tim Blonk, Lodewijk Reijs and A. Schouten. Piano and Hammond by R. Van Gasteren. Released by Rhythm bomb records. The cd sleeve, with a big hog head on the center, is designed by kustom.be.

It opens with a machine gun fire, oh no wait, it’s Richard’s drum roll starting the first song “Bombshell” an homage to the women so beautiful and sexy, they make heads turn once they enter the room. Peter’s raw voice and Rex’s guitar sound and -riffs gives us all the basic rockabilly ingredients we need.

As a New Orleanian, I have adopted a vintage, retro, rockabilly style that is right at home in a city that loves traditional jazz music, swing dancing, blues, and rock’n’roll.

I have been dancing with a group called the Nola Chorus Girls for five years, and we perform at local venues, festivals, and our many, many parades for all occasions. We wear original vintage-inspired costumes and dance to jazz and swing standards as performed by wonderful local musicians. I started hula hooping five years ago, as well, and while I’m not the most skilled, I am a pretty good hoop dancer with a few tricks up my sleeve (or around my waist, I guess!)

My name is Sarah Jane. I am a healthcare professional specializing in Gerontology and, currently, going for my Master’s at USC. I hope to one day become a vital part of the elder community and produce change and hope for our aging population. I’m a single mother of a 2-yr old rockstar named Dax and love all extreme outdoor activities. Hiking, running, backpacking, camping, white-water rafting, ziplining…you name it! When I’m not going getting my blood rushing, I love to sit down and read a good book and cook a good meal with some reggaeton, country, blues or rockabilly on blast.

Pinup has always been a soft spot for me and I find everything about it beautiful and creative.Every woman has the right to feel mysterious, sexy, seductive and classy.

Barrence Whitfield – Soul Flowers of Titan review

Posted by Dee-Ann On June - 18 - 2018ADD COMMENTS 256 views

The second new album Soul Flowers of Titan from Boston’s Barrence Whitfield and the Savages is out on Bloodshot records. It was inspired by the cosmic outlook of Sun Ra and elaborates on the Cincinnati-based King Records and Federal Records sounds of the 1950s-’60s.
 

I’ve seen Barrence live a few times in the 90’s and also more recently a few years ago. He is so energetic, never a dull moment on stage with Barrence. In his voice you hear a touch of Screaming Jay Hawkins.

The album opens with a “flat tire” rhythm “Slowly Losing My Mind” supported by a sixties-ish Hammond sound and naughty trumpet solo.

Al Dual – Blue’s Back in Town (album review)

Posted by Dee-Ann On June - 11 - 2018ADD COMMENTS 594 views

Al Dual, a good looking Spanish guitarist, has been awarded the Ameripolitan Music Awards Memphis 2018, and he and his band has just been included in the prestigious rockabilly Hall Of Fame. He played with numerous artists such as Charlie Hightone (Spain), Chris Casello (USA), Ashley Kingman, Eddie Nichols, Paul Pigat (Canada), Lisa Pankratz, Mike Sánchez (UK), Sue Moreno (NL), Chan Romero & many more.

Al’s latest release in vinyl is called Blue’s Back in Town and is recorded in Sun Records Studio.

If you’d tell me Blue’s Back In Town was a 1956 record, I think I would believe it.  They really succeeded in creating that authentic sound. Remember the song “All I can do is cry” (1956) from Wayne Walker? It would fit perfectly next to the four original songs of Al Dual.

I must admit, I’m a Slapback Johnny fan. Whenever they’re around I must see those Dutch guys when I’m able. Their  energy is contagious and their songs refreshing. You’d think it must be an oldie rockabilly song, but it’s their own original. When I heard their music will be available in my own home/ car/ device because they decided to record their work, I was excited. So even before the release of their album I was very curious, I had to ask them all about it.

Hey guys, your new album, what’s it called?

Our debut album is called “Hit Me Up” and will be released internationally on Rhythm Bomb Records next month!

Pinup of the week: Miss Christine

Posted by Dee-Ann On October - 23 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 1,366 views
My name is Christine Leanne Wood.  I just turned 36 in August. I have recently discovered the world of pinups and rockabilly. I have fallen head over heals for this lifestyle. I am a Property Manager in commercial real estate during the week.  When I am not working I seek thrilling adventures. I love motorcycle rides, fast rods, art, road trips, dancing and anything vintage/old hollywood. My main squeeze is music.  I am learning to play my Fender Strat and write song lyrics.  
I took the advice of a friend and did my first pin up shoot.  This was to be a project to build my confidence and bring healing after a traumatic event in my life.  In July of 2016 I suffered a brutal attack.  I sustained multiple injuries and was held hostage for 6 hours.  I almost lost my life that day. It has taken alot of healing but I have found strength in the process. Everyday I am grateful to be alive and for every moment. My plan is to find my purpose, to live my life to the fullest and never be afraid to take chances. Life is beautiful and I will embrace it.

Hi!

My name is Maggie Leroux. You might know me as the stage kitten of the International Burlesque Circus, the Amsterdam Burlesque Awards, the Burlesque Kingdom or many other great burlesque events in The Netherlands.

In 2013 I attended my very first burlesque show and from that moment on I knew this was the world I wanted to be part of. Intrigued by this seductive and mysterious world I started dance lessons at Flora Gattina’s Amsterdam School of Burlesque. It felt like I found my home.

CD Review The Wheelgrinders – Torque Flite Baby

Posted by Miriam On October - 10 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 1,051 views

Rockabilly trio The Wheelgrinders, Vancouver Canada, already introduced a few weeks ago on Rockabilly Online, has released their debut CD “Torque-Flite Baby”.
And what a debut!

The CD was recorded at Bryan Adams’ The Warehouse studio in Vancouver as well as at the legendary Sun Studios in Memphis, TN. The album title “Torque-Flite Baby” is written about their 1957 Dodge Coronet car which has Torque-Flite transmission.
The CD is filled with 12 songs; four songs are written by Greg (guitar and lead vocals), like Hangry Baby, Betty Lou’s got a new tattoo, Space Rabbits Go! and the title track Torque-Flite Baby.
But you can also find some fifties originals in a up tempo version, like Hip Hip Baby, Uranium Rock, Jungle Rock, Tag along and Good night Irene.
By hearing the songs, you wouldn’t say that this band only played together for 2 years; there is an incredible energy and enthusiasm. Rockabilly at its best!

Caroline (upright bass) and Stuart (drums) take care of the necessary rhythm as if they had never done anything else. Greg has an authentic voice to complete a real fifties sound.
For the Rockabilly fans in Canada, make sure you see them in action. When their gig is just as catching as their CD, it is definitely worth it. And for the Rockabilly-lovers overseas, hope they’ll visit your country someday….

The Rechords – New Vinyl Release

Posted by Miriam On October - 6 - 2017ADD COMMENTS 1,292 views

Melbourne trio The Rechords started their career in 2009, building quite a strong local and evergrowing overseas following, performing in the realm of over 450+ shows.
The guys from Australia have a full sound for acoustic guitar, electric guitar and upright bass, but it’s the 2 and 3 part harmonies and varied lead vocals that give this band it’s individuality and punch.
With their self-written songs, they have a unique style, closely related to Americana, with an influence of old timey Hillbilly, Bluegrass, alternative country and traditional Rockabilly.
They’ve played pubs as well as festivals all over Australia, but even the USA and Europe.
Their discography includes 2 full albums; “Bottom of the Barrel” released in 2012 and “Live Rechording” released in 2015.

Over the last 8 months they’ve hit the studio and that has resulted in 10 amazing tracks. Each 2 to 3 months a double A-side Vinyl record will be released along with a digital download.
The first release is the limited edition of the 7 inch vinyl with the singles “Mockingbird” and “Seeing things”.
