Loneshots (the) – self-titled ep

Loneshots

Sweet 50’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Promociones ‎– SFEP 001 [1995]
Don’t Take It Away – Stop, Look ‘n’ Listen – You’re Not The Best – Rockshot
After the split of Los Tornados, Anabel Moreno founded The Loneshots with some of the best rockabilly musicians on the Madrid scene, namely Diego Araoz on guitar, Carlos Lopez on double bass and Javier Sarmentero on drums. The Loneshots were the first Spanish band to play the Hemsby weekender. In 1995 they released this four-track Ep, their sole musical testimony on wax.
Three songs are originals, and the cover, Stop, Look ‘n’Listen, comes from the repertoire of Patsy Cline. Annabel is a terrific singer, and the band has an excellent traditional Rockabilly sound with jazzy and swingin’ tones that is mainly present on “Rockshot,” the instrumental that closes the ep.
After the band broke up, Miss Moreno went on to form Anabel and the Rock-a-bells while Diego Araoz and Javier Sarmentero played in the Milestones that released one album on El Toro.
