Gary Setzer and Barry Ryan "Rockabilly Express"

Gary Setzer and Barry Ryan
"Rockabilly Express" (Raucous)

Fortunately, everything one would hope for from this formidable-talents pairing -- neo-rockabilly as fleet and trenchant as it is ever-cognizant of melody. Diverse American roots idioms rub shoulders in fraternal congress. Old is fast-forwarded into today by distorto-stomp. Smashes clean through surrounding pop-foppery.

Recommended "Las Vegas Blues," "Hot Train To Hell," "Barry's Breakdown," "Hot Head, Cold Feet"
