Voodoo Swing released their first album We’re Usin’ Code Names! in 1993 on Nervous Records. Their second album Well, Okay Then! was released on Netherlands’ Rockhouse Records label. Now they are attached to the Electric Lotus Label, starting with their 2011 album Keep on Rollin’and this years’ Fast Cars, Guitars, Tattoos & Scars.
The title song Fast Cars, Guitars, Tattoos & Scars, is the Voodoo Swing sound you expect, when you listened to their previous albums. But then your attention gets caught by the banjo in the country song When death comes a callin’. And so each song can be a bluegrass, honky-tonk suprise, with rockabilly inbetween. This is a record with a variaty of sounds from pedal steel, piano, saxophones (from bass to alto), fiddle, banjo. They added the talents of guest musicians: Pat Roberts (& The Heymakers), the multi-instrumentalist powerhouse Shea Marshall, as well as country friend Tony Martinez.
