The Brains – Drunk not Dead

Posted by Rocky On October - 18 - 2012

Let me start by saying I knew the brains from their song “Screaming”. I loved the sound of the bass (of course), and the nice shot video clip( although the uncensored clip was a little dark!). You can call it a little darker side of psychobilly. The Brains are from Montreal, Canada. I got the package send to me, containing a CD and a nice poster. So I was pretty curious how this CD would sound. A summary of a few of the songs:

The intro, named Horseman, starts with rain and a drum solo. From there it immediately continues into the next song, four beast ride. Of course the song is talking about the four horseman of the apocalypse. The cd was off to a great start, I was curious for the rest.

“Take what I want” takes it a little less rough, it still sounds good! Proof that psychobilly doesn’t always have to be fast bass and lyrics you can’t hear. For the psycho’s that do love that in psychobilly, don’t worry, they are speeding up again with the next songs! “We are the Brains”, “Six Rounds, ”Oh Murder”, “Premonitions” and “High on Speed” definitely make your head bang, or wreck through the room! And I’m not even done with the track list. “Gato Calavera” and “Pourquoi Me Laisser” are in Spanish and French, I think, so I can’t really tell you much about those song, but they sound good, especially the last of the two. The cd ends with “I’m your nightmare” and “In League”. I must say I liked the guitar/bass combination in “I’m your nightmare”! And last, but not least, “In League”. A good end of a good CD!

Demented Are Go – Welcome Back To Insanity Hall

Posted by Rocky On October - 16 - 2012

Demented Are Go, one of the first psychobilly bands, are back! Where you ask? Right back to Insanity Hall!

The Welsh psychobilly band, formed around 1982, are back in 2012 for their new album full with sick psychobilly and dirty rock and roll. When I was asked to review this album, I said that I already had it pre-ordered in march, so i already listened to it. Of course I ordered the vinyl, available in black, purple and nuclear green. Since its more their style i ordered the nuclear green one! And i also got a CD and a limited edition LP sleeve with the band on it! A short summary of some of the songs:

The intro takes you to insanity hall, and till the end your gonna stay there! Track 2, named the same as the album title, tells you your not getting out! A warm welcome to insanity hall.
