Rock the Casbah and Give em Enough Rope, Hitsville Beckons to The Hyperjax With release of ?The Bottom Line? album in Febuary 2007
19 December 2006 - Press Dispensary - Calling all rude boys, rockers, and
rebels. Slick back your quiffs and dust down your Gretch guitars, as UK
punkabilly Myspace? phenomenon and master of the mosh pit, Hyperjax
(http://www.thehyperjax.net), releases its album ?The Bottom Line? on
Raucous Records, in Febuary 07.
The no-nonsense northerners provide the perfect antidote to the inescapable
mundanity of seasonal pop slush. The CD?s 12 original tracks will have fans
tearing down tinsel and moshing over the mistletoe in celebration of the
band?s gutsy rock?n?roll that takes its sound beyond the generic psychobilly
Howard Raucous, of Raucous Records, says: ?The Hyperjax lads are
in-your-face punkabilly favourites with an international following. They
trash the rock 'n' roll boundaries, constantly breaking new ground and offer
a two-finger salute to the bourgeois boy-band banality of mainstream music.?
He continues: ?Hyperjax takes over where The Clash left off. This second
album, The Bottom Line, gives fans out-and-out music with muscle; full
throttle rock that?ll make their ears bleed backed by heartfelt political
savvy that shows the brains behind the brawn.?
The Bottom Line reflects the band?s left of centre sentiments, with its
title song dedicated to those made redundant by the closure of MG Rover?s
factory in 2005, and other tracks attacking the meaningless violence of the
?Adidas army? and the glamorisation of serial killers in the US.
