1.- I'm the wolfman
2.- Stranglehold
3.- I hate you
4.- Personal Jesus
5.- Secrets
6.- I'll never love again
7.- All black & hairy
8.- Frozen
9.- Right to death
10.- Moonshine juke-joint
11.- Underworld
12.- Hillbilly stomp.

First off, do you like traditional / old school Psychobilly?, the kinda stuff that was the norm before a lot of bands went metal with an upright.....you do?, then this one's for you.

What you get are 12 well played,well produced (thanks Mr Wilson) tracks of Psychobilly mayhem 9 of which are originals, 2 of the covers are spot on but track 4.....YOU BASTARDS,WHY DID YOU DO THAT TO ME? Twisted Evil Laughing ...I hate that song!.
My personal faves? - 'Stranglehold' - 'I hate you' - 'Secrets' - 'All black & hairy' - 'Right to death' (complete with Krewmen riffs!) - 'Underworld' in fact apart from that song that can't be mentioned this is a shit hot release Very Happy Cool .

So,yet another good release from a band that hail from the steel town & who all have the same surname.......Oxley.......2 of whom are Psychobilly veterans (old gits) of many bands & 1 young pup on drums!.

If you get the chance to go see them, do it...or you'll kick yerself for missing out on a good gig & a good laugh.

It's a mixture of styles & influences that WILL get your feet tappin' if you're at home or if you're catching them live & you'll be tempted to go out with your fists a swingin' Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing .


btw...this is the 2nd time I've written this today,just as I was about to press the submit button our bastard ferret launched himself off the sofa & landed on the keyboard Shocked Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad ....he's back in his cage now....twat.

Yep, Billy and Paul played guitar and bass respectively in the Radiacs and do the same in the Hillbillys. Steve, the drummer, is Paul's son

Gotta agree with you on this - it's a must have!

It's certainly got that 'old skool' vibe - Personal Jesus never made it to my iPod (why is the f00ker so popular).

My fave track is Hillbilly Stomp (it's a shame it's tagged onto a hidden sample at the end Sad )

Seen these live a couple of time and they went down a storm on both occasions,

I love that you mentioned that they have a sound thats not metal with an upright. I totally get that music changes and grows and can be messed around with, but I really dont like the direction Pyschobilly music is heading in. Im a fan of metal but Im more of a fan of good original psychobilly. I dont like them mixed together. The Epileptic Hillbilliys are an amazing band.

I'm pretty sure the radics just finished a tour a few months ago. I'm not sure as to if it was the original members. Clarification?
