Psychobilly is a genre that I've gradually discovered the last year, and didn't really get hooked before last winter\spring.
Anywho, me and a few mates went to Copenhagen, Denmark to see Cock Sparrer, and Frenzy was supporting. Still to this day one of the cooler live-bands I've seen, and I dare say I've seen most "big\established" Punk and Metal bands around, at least the majority.
I bought the "Nitro Boy" CD but didn't give it a spin until this Summer and got immediately hooked to it ,still spinning it regurarely.
Got a hold of a couple of other older Frenzy CD's which is quite decent and got a few really great songs, but I think they're more uneven that the aforementioned "Nitro Boy", which has a more Psycho\Punk sound to it, compared to the more, (dare I say it...) more New Wave oriented 80's stuff. Harsh, I know, but I still like'em.
Anywho, their new album In The Blood arrived yesterday, and I've given it 5-6 spins, and I think it's a great album! The opening track "Time Machine" is my favourite right now.
In the tradition of "Nitro Boy", it continues the mix of Psychobilly, Neo-Rockabilly and Punk, with a very varied sound (positively varied, mind you).
Can't wait to see them again at Rebellion next year, and hopefully get a hold of the albums I haven't got yet.
Any thoughts on the new album, and\or the band in general?
I've noticed it's quite a "controversial" act within the scene, undeserved I say, but hey, I'm just a newb

Excellent first album......down hill ever since......Didnt mind there new cd on first 2 or 3 listens but had it on the way down to Bedlam and i had to switch it off...it was really starting to grate on me.......But thats just my opinion, there are a lot of bands in the scene that i have a lot more time for and alot more respect for to boot...........But each to there own!!!!!
