A very interesting compilation released by Maybe Crazy from Germany.
The first track is an unissued song by Mad Sin (Blind Spot) featuring the classic trio line-up. This is a pure shot of adrenalin and slap bass straight into your brain.
The next four tracks are by the Scallywags. Criminal Boiz and Ship Of Fools are penned by the band and are quite good. Classic mid 80’s psychobilly with a light country flair on the guitar for the latter. The two covers sound more like the band having fun during a rehearsal than a proper studio recording, and I suppose they were not recorded with the idea to be released (the vocals being rough and approximate.)
The Voodoo Dolls were one (if not the first) Swedish psychobilly band. Those two songs come from their debut album, a good mix of garage (a cover of Hasil Adkins), and Psychobilly.
The first mini album of POX (Psychobilly Orchestra X) “It’s So Dark” completes the set. It’s a bit young and rough, but very personnal. Two songs, the more ‘traditional’ dare I say, feature a double bass while they use an electric bass for the more garage influenced stuff (Link Wray’s Rawhide.)
Crazy, Crazy, Crazy features classic psychobilly and even some historic releases which is a reason good enough to get it. Furthermore, it comes in colored vinyl with a superb gatefold sleeve featuring a very nice drawing by the same artist who did the Scannerz’ cover .
