Black Lagoon No. 3 – Eddie’s Return
Rumble Records – BL003
Deuces Wild: Completely Sweet – Klingonz: Something Else – Resless: 20 Flight Rock – The Sharks: Tired’n’Sleepy
Rare four-track single released as a bonus with the German Psychobilly Fanzine “Demon Love No. 4.” It gathers four Eddie Cochran covers played by four well-known names on the psychobilly-rockabilly scene.
The Deuces Wild song comes from their second album and is a solid piece of neo-rockabilly with an excellent guitar solo. Cochran’s catalog is vast, and it’s good to find a band that goes beyond the ultra classic numbers. This is not the case with the Klingonz and their version of one of Cochran’s most well-known songs: Something Else. Well, I’ve never been a fan of the punkish brand of Psychobilly played by the Klingonz, and this cover did nothing to change my mind.
Taken from the lp “the early years,” Restless’ Twenty Flight Rock is raw, exciting and everything you come to expect by this legendary trio.
The Sharks close the program with an early live track taken from “First and Last live” that shows the Rockabilly roots of the band.
