I know this aint a rodding question but it seems to be assosiated with rodding....I want to know from others that are into rockabilly what bands, CDs do you recommend I get. Either Aussie or overseas....I will give what me and my wife seem to like.
Aussie bands:-
...Chrome Daddies ( a leaning toward country ) their CD called "Who's Your Daddies" is great.
Flamin Locos..Great harmonies and catchy stuff from this youg band.
The Creeper..a good Sydney band, The originals are good but the covers fall a bit short mainly cause the lead guitarist can't handle the licks.
Slappin The Cats... A Victorian band that doesn't venture much into NSW. They are pure Rockabilly with no frills....I would like to see them live up here.
The Satelites....An Adelaide band I believe....Very polished but I prefer the male bass player's vocals in preference to the girl up front ..she gets a bit piercing on the ears.

Overseas Bands
Anything Brian Setzer does ( with exception to his latest creation , I don't get it )
Lee Rocker..ex Stray Cats bass player..all good stuff

I don't like phsycobilly?..can't dance to it....well not at my age anyhow. So does anyone else recommend any more?

I've got some mates in a Perth band called "Rusty and the Dragstrip Trio". Pretty trad rockabilly with echoes of early Sun Studios Elvis. You can get their CD from Robot International, in fact, you can probably find most stuff on their website.

I'm sure you've also heard of "Rockbottom James and the Detonators" out of Melbourne. They're pretty bluesy, but not that boring shit that all the bikers (and Carps) are into. They've just released their 4th CD, but I'm not sure where you can get it from apart from the gigs.

I don't think they're playing at the moment, but the "Whiteliners" are one of my favourite Sydney bands. Pretty hillbilly/country feel to their stuff, but that's all rockabilly is, hepped up hillbilly.

Yeah....the DJ at Ashfield played some of Rusty and The Drag Strip Trio last Saturday night...I like what I heard...The Whiteliners don't get around a lot. We still haven't heard them...or Rockbottom James...I'll see what I can dig up. Robot are the source for a lot of stuff...I have been waiting 2 months for one CD that I ordered through them...I think I'll go via Amazon for all imports from now on.
It was good to catch up with you today for lunch...hope things work out for you.

what about The Vibrolaters (sp?) ?

Saw them at Wignalls winery...believe it or not at their Blues Show, some blues but Jo-Jo Zep & the Falcoms were headliners.

Anyway, the Vibrolators were polished, sharp & for my mind a damn fine band!

Dunno if they have CDs but might get one if they have one & wouldn't hesitate to see them again!

I think I would put em in PSYCHO!!!......
You really need to see em live, preferably a coupla rows back if you don't like fake blood ( that was the case last time in Melbourne anyway )
Definetely catch these guys when they are in town.

Just thought of another borderline psycho - rockabilly
The Psyclones (Syd) played at the picnic and the Psycho fest that was on.

Just to add to this...I ordered some CDs from Robot and one was the one Boris recommended..Rusty and the Drag Strip Trio from Perth.....Very good indeed. It was supposidly recorded live in the studio, but I don't really think so....its just too damn good....very well produced, good tunes, good guitar , vocals, bass and drums. Highly recommended for any rockabilly fan....we need to get them over here.
The second one that arrived was ordered back in December last year and surprisingly arrived 2 days after I cancelled the order. I was going to whinge but I thought I'd play it first..It is by a US band called the Belmont Playboys and the CDs called Hot rod Heart. If you like Stray Cats ( who doesn't !) then I think this will appeal to you...The guitarist is no slouch but not in the same league as Brian Setzer...but who is....still, he is probably one of the better ones getting around...Most rockabilly bands seem to fall short in the guitarist stakes but have good everything else. I'll give my stamp of approval on these guys as well...( not that means anything )

Stevie Ray Vaugh did a couple of side projects, one with Duane Eddy and another with Lonnie Mack. There's a lot of Blues/Rockabilly/Swing in both of those recordings.

Seems a lot of the guitar Gods dabble into it.....Get hold of a CD by Jeff Beck called Crazy Legs...It's his tribute to English rockabilly...very good stuff.
