Aaron and the Beaux Ties

Vinylux V0012 [2021]
El Matador / I Walked All Night

Aaron is Aaron LeBeau, son of Wendy and Lance LeBeau (Flea Bops). The less that you can say is that Rock’n’Roll runs in this family’s blood. The Beaux Ties are, of course, Wendy on bass and Lance on drums.
Side one is a mean garage instrumental and is an original tune, not to be confused with the Paladins tune of the same name. One can hear the influence of the great Link Wray with the appropriate Latin feel.
The B-side is a cover of the Embers’ I Walked All Night. It was penned by Hargus “Pig” Robbins, also known as Mel Robbins of Save It fame. Wendy sings it perfectly with detachment and lascivious arrogance.
It’s raw and primitive Rockabilly with a strong garage feel. Just when I thought that this song would have been perfect for The Cramps, I remembered that they had covered it on Big Beat From Badsville. Aaron and the Beaux Ties’ version is excellent and has nothing to envy to any other version.
I hope to hear more from that young fellow soon.
