They call themselves the Amazing Crowns these days (are they no longer Royal?), and they’ve only had three albums (2 studio, one live) since forming in 1993, but I love love love this sound. Let’s go!!!
Packing 14 songs into 35 minutes, this is a short, sharp shock of rockabilly rock-out bliss! Think Reverend Horton Heat, Cramps, Jon Spencer…
With a list like that, you know that I love this CD. I bought it back in ’97 or ’98 when I heard the amazing Do The Devil on a CMJ New Music sampler CD. Shiverin’ In The Corner also became a favourite, though every song here is a ton of fun. Try dancing to King Of The Joint/Wreckin’ Machine combo… hahahaha woo!
I was in the throes of the swing revival back then (I’ve never really left it) but these guys still fit right in… Just get up and DANCE!!
Freakin’ fantastic. Highly recommended.
