    Twangin' Across The Universe CD

    Twangin' Across The Universe is the first album from the Russian rockabilly trio The Telescopes.
    Already popular in their native country, they got a great response at the 2012 Screamin' Rockabilly Festival in Spain.
    Their sound is authentic 1950s style rockabilly with lots of original material.

    The Telescopes are a Russian rockabilly trio and "Twangin'..." is their debut album.  All songs but one (Remington Ride) are originals penned by the band's singer/guitarist Andrey Bitulev. 
    Bitulev is clearly what you would call a Guitar Geek, which probably explains the presence of the four instrumentals.
    One can hear in his guitar styles shades of Grady Martin and Deke Dickerson (Green Alley Bop), Eddie Angel and Duane Eddy (Twangin' Across the Universe), Pete Anderson (No Reason To Cry) and Danny Gatton (Remington Ride).  There's also some Hillbilly Bop with nice Travis pickin' like on Every Girl I Knew or Sunday Promenade.
    Some tunes have a more modern edge like Good News Bad News a neo-rockabilly number or You're Not Lucky a melodic Psychobilly song. There's also a hint of electric blues and two songs with a '60s feel in the style of the Floyd Dakil combo. This good debut album ends with the quiet Snow Lullaby, a soft instrumental with brushes and steel guitar.
    Fred "Virgil" Turgis (Jumping From 6 to 6)
