    The Rattlers
    Never Say Die CD

    Very popular during the mid-1980s British Rockabilly boom, British band The Rattlers released a string of albums and singles.
    Never Say Die is their third album and is one of their best with lots of great original material and a couple of well-chosen cover songs.

    Review by Fred Turgis - Jumpin' from 6 to 6

    The Rattlers formed in 1984. The band released various albums, singles and EPs before splitting a couple of years later. Nick Peck (slap bass) joined Paul Roman (Quakes) in Paul Roman and the Prowlers for a short time but soon reformed the Rattlers, with Doug Sheperd on guitar and Doug McCarthy on drums. A deal was concluded with Nervous Records and they recorded "Never Say Die" with Pete Gage in 1989. This album is really excellent and though the previous one were good it's by far a more accomplished work. The core of the album is made of a majority of self penned neo-rockabilly numbers very well written with tight arrangement and a special care on the vocal harmonies. Peck is a more than competent singer too. A couple of songs border on psychobilly like the title track (superb) and Forbidden Love. At the exact opposite October Moon and Leavin' You Behind find the band in a jazzy-rockabilly style similar to the Nitros.
