I don't know what it is about pompadours and rockabilly girls but ever since I heard the deep twang of my first Gretsch guitar, this little boy from the suburbs has wanted to grow some gnarly chops and rebuild classic cars for a living. Instead I work a 9 to 5 job and drive a 2007 Toyota Corolla but at least I have the the music and like these, the occasional video to keep that dream a live. Who knows, maybe at 65 I'll grow those chops and start my own punk rock'a'billy band.
So if you have a inner rockabilly child too sit back and enjoy this weeks Double Feature and if you need a little more to tide you over check out Blank TV. They have a ton of videos to check out.
Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons - "Trouble with the Devil"
A terrific video from a great band out of the UK.
This femme fronted punk'a'billy band out of the UK have an awesome sound and a mesmerizing look. I hope they can gain the needed momentum to make it across the pond and bless our shores with their presence.
American Pinup - "Strange Creatures"
Who gives a damn about Jersey Shore this is what they should be showing on MTV. This East coast band, formally named Big Sister, has gained some speed this last year. Though they haven't quiet made it all the way up to the Northwest, when they do, they can be assured that they will find places to play and an eager crowd to listen. Make sure to check out their debut album Strange Creatures on Altercation Records.
