Blurry Pictures and Hazy Thoughts on the Second day of the 2012 Psychobilly Luau

The second of the three nights of the 2012 Psychobilly Luau took place at the Bell House, a hall tucked off in an warehouse cranny in Brooklyn; plenty of parking for the drivers and close enough to the 4th-Ave stop on the F/G for straphangers. For the eastern psycho, July 2012 held such promise with …

Thirty years ago, three lads from the isle of England put together a band called The Meteors and from there, some say, the genre of psychobilly was born. Punk rock and rockabilly mixing together, with elements of horror mixed in with classic roots rock country. Thirty years as a band is pretty impressive, even more …

Memphis Morticians

We talked about Memphis Morticians back when Von Erickson’s work was featured in a Tuesday uEtsy (which I’m told are on vacation for October as we do the daily countdown.) Being that it’s Psychobilly Wednesday, what better band to feature than the Memphis Morticians? I saw them place down in Stanford a few years ago …

King Sickabilly/Sasquatch and the Sick-a-billys

I’m selective in my rockabilly/psychobilly choices. The genre shares an unfortunate quality with modern country, where different people sound alike. Modern country has always appeared to be made up of five session bands and a rotating cavalcade of singers, producing different songs with different vocals but ultimately, sounding the same. It’s dull. There’s no real …
