Exciting news, reviews and interviews on rockabilly online

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 31 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 123 views

20140829_163913It’s been a long time since we reviewed albums, due to the big amount of albums offered and lack of enough reviewers , time and energy. But after a summer holiday well spent we are back on our feet again. I was going through 400 emails from all around the world! I answered 200 (the other half was spam) so now we got some great interviews coming up, fantastic pinup pictures of photographers and ofcourse album reviews.

To name a few: Four Star Combo, The Rockats, Kyle Esplin, Marco Di Maggio, The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns and ….. Reverend Horton Heat!
Did I mention Brian Setzer? Brian’s new album is coming up too!

To the artists who request a review, we only accept the physical albums, no downloads please, because our reviewers want to review the whole production. And be patient, we really do get a lot of emails and albums daily.

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers interview

Picture by Joshua Black Wilkins

JD Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers started out as just the Dirt Daubers, an old-timey trio from Kentucky. However, we “went electric” over a year ago and started playing more blues and rockabilly. There’s a lot of old Chess era R&B in what we do too.

I have loved blues music since I was in my mid teens. I love the music of Muddy Waters, Magic Sam and Little Walter. I later discovered rockabilly guys like Charlie Feathers and Dex Romweber. Mojo Nixon, Jim Heath and other edgy modern guys made the music real to me. I draw inspiration from my home town, which is in the South and not far from where the blues and rockabilly were both born. I also still have a passion for Kentucky mountain music. Remember, you can’t have rockabilly without the “hillbilly” component.

Jo: Passion for rockabilly

Posted by Dee-Ann On August - 25 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 186 views

New PictureIf you ever happened to visit Camperdown, you might notice a stylish young woman who seems to be walking the streets of a different era. That’s Jo Williams…she loves everything vintage and wears it every day.

It doesn’t stop there though. Jo not only walks the walk, she dances the dance and has even competed in a rockabilly pin-up competition.

For a rock ‘n’ rollin’ trip back to the 50s, and to find out what makes this country girl so passionate about a time gone by, watch this four-minute film.

The WyattChristmas Trio – I’ve got rhythm: CD review

Posted by Miriam On July - 23 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 402 views

WyattCD

The WyattChristmas Trio from Germany; I’ve already interviewed them in 2010.
But since then, a lot has happened.
The frontman of the band, Andy WyattChristmas (Wyatt like Wyatt Earp) is still leading the band, since he started the trio in 2008.
They’ve released their first album in 2010 called “Well, it’s allright”.
But since then two members have left the band and they’re replaced by Lee Diefenbach (drums & vocals) and Ralf Exter (bass & vocals).
With this line up they’ve released recently the second album, called “I’ve got rhythm”. And for sure, the name is perfectly chosen!

You can describe their sound as a mixture of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Blues and swing. A vintage sound like the early fifties, very danceable music.
Most of the songs (90%) are self-written songs and the harmony vocals run like a thread through the whole album.

Well im vixxxen Lucy Lynn…a true southern blonde bombshell…we like our drinks and men both strong…only 24 years old but I have a old soul…I was born in the wrong era.
Its so liberating and such a sexual thrill to get all dressed up like Marilyn, anna Nicole or Bettie. they are my inspirations. I read once that Marilyn walked like there was a string attached to her head so she just floated. Ive been practising this…harder than you think hahaha. my hobbies are anything to do with hair and makeup or vintage clothing and jewelry. Car shows and concerts also rock! I love to dance and mingle with people. I can talk to anyone Im def not shy at all…. I recently got involved into the modeling part and I’m hooked! There is no high like being in front of the camera. I totally turn into the vixxxen.

Rockabilly is taking over the Rotterdam (again)

Photo by Terral Bouman

All of my 22 years here on earth I’ve lived in Rotterdam. I grew up with wild rockin’ stories about jivin’ in Jailhouse Place, and late nights at The Flaming Star. But those places are no more :( So I traveled all over the country for party’s, thinking that rockabilly in Rotterdam is gone. Until the last few months!

It started with a event called “De Rotte Tiet”. In english, translates to ” the rotten titty”. But let me explain! The name came from a parody of The Titty Twister, from From Dusk Till Dawn! Born from the brains of Jesse van der Heijden and Dennis Klootwijk, the plan is to organize a party, where you can just be yourself. Guys can be just classy lads, girls can be pretty ladies! Not like the disco,hipster and hiphopin’ folk on the regular places. The evening is filled with dirty Rock’n’Roll and Rockabilly, boppin’ tracks! Hans Worst is there to still you’re hunger with sauce, right from the grill. You can have you’re picture taken! And it goes on till late! I know, because I spinned the wax there! I danced like crazy when I didn’t spin. But the best part, I saw the older generation rockers and the newer generation in one place! So I highly recommend to go there! And I Look forward to the next edition!

Pinup of the week: Madeleine Mayhem

Posted by Miriam On June - 9 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 781 views

MadeleineMadeleine Mayhem is the kind of lady the un-dead would roam the earth for, and rightly so.
With her infectious smile and haunting demeanour this 5”4 cocktail of ink, orange hair and sky high killer heels is the perfect excuse to ‘dig yourself up’ over.

To start at the very beginning (which according to Julie Andrews) is a very good place to start Miss Mayhem’s tale put simply would go a little like this:
Once upon a something a little girl was born into a world of sewing machines and rock ‘n’ roll. Time passed, almost 20 years in-fact and that little girl was asked to model a dress in a fashion parade at a Tattoo Expo. I don’t think that designer knew exactly what they were about to unleash on the world. That fateful day teamed with her existing love of horror and a nickname from a very Reckless friend and Miss Madeleine Mayhem was alive…. It’s ALIVE!!!

Alongside running her clothing label Dead End Dames, being a pin-up girl seems like second nature to Mayhem and from then till now and forever it will remain one of her true loves. Inspired by strong willed ladies like Tempest Storm and her all time favourite dame Vampira, Madeleine Mayhem has become a force to be reckoned with while still remaining down to earth enough to sit here with yours truly and have a Captain Morgans, dry and lime while discussing beauty secrets, tattooists (check out Richie Blackheart and Graf) and why you should never trust a guy who asks if this smells like chloroform to you?

Pinup of the week: Nikki Lynn

Posted by Miriam On May - 12 - 2014ADD COMMENTS 748 views

Nicole3

My name is Nikki Lynn. Born and raised near Vancouver, Canada. I grew up a bit of a country girl, riding horses my whole life. Never afraid to get a little dirt under my nails but always passionate for the glam of retro hair/makeup/fashion. I have loved being in front of the camera since I was a little girl and have done many hair modeling and pin up style photo shoots through the years. I have had a strong affinity for all things vintage from a young age. I love cooking, baking and gardening. I also can’t deny my love for a little shake on the dance floor!

_MG_7527“Home” is a concept that is both solid and nebulous. To many, home is the city where you currently reside, the plot of land you call your own, or simply the bed where you lay your head.   These concepts of home are all true.  But then there is “home” as a place of origin.  The space that helped shape who you are.  In the United States, this often brings to mind lots of Norman Rockwell imagery of simple, small town life and all of its nostalgic charms.  As the setting of this story is my hometown of Graham, Texas; located in Young County, not far from the infamous Possum Kingdom Lake.  And as we made our trek from Austin, my home for the last five years, those feelings of nostalgia started to trickle in and by the time we drove through Mineral Wells, were simply overflowing.  For the first time in my adult life, my past and my present were locking horns in a fury of anxiety and excitement.

chair1I first became aware of the “Cars and Stars” event through Facebook.  Local Rockabilly/Alt-Country act, the Octanes played the show in 2013 and the pictures of my old town square drew me in like an old hound dog to a soup bone.  If you had told my teenaged-self that there was going to be a festival with Rock ‘n’ Roll bands, hot rods, and pin-up models in my humble and conservative hometown my younger self would have no doubt scoffed in disbelief at the notion.  But there it was, clear as day and it set my brain on fire.  I had to see this for myself. Then lightning struck and I knew.  Danger*Cakes, my wife, Jamie’s band needed to get in on this festival.  Nothing would make me happier than to see them play at the town square where I had spent so much of my childhood.  I had to make this happen.

Fast forward almost a year later to April 11th.  Jamie, the band, and myself were all packing up late Friday night for a four hour drive through the Texas hill country.  My mood was electric and the night was just chilly enough to have that atmospheric quality.  By the time we finally rolled into Graham around 1AM,  the town seemed empty, reminding me of the many misspent nights roaming the town streets with my friends, often ending up at the local cemetery, if we felt brave enough.  Although this night my gang of friends and I simply ended up at the local Holiday Inn, a relatively new addition to the town.

Pinup of the week: Dana Ange

Dana

Hi my name is Dana and I am a rockabilly chic through and through. I live in Virginia and grew up in the city of Norfolk.I am a hairstylist with a passion for rockabilly. When I was growing up, times were very though for my family but we always had two things love and my daddy listening to Elvis .I was not like most girls.Infact,I grew up in a garage helping my daddy build, chopp the tops, and playing in bondo. Yes it’s true, I played with bondo instead of playto.

Rockabilly is a way of life for me and is who I am. Its a feeling of loving and respecting all things vintage and classic. I often said I was born in the wrong era.I wouldn’t change anything about the way I grew up because it is who I am today .I really know what it feels like to have an old soul. Thats just it……It’s in your blood and soul. So for all you rockabillys out there, never change because we are what you call a classic.
