Look Like Hell CD
Look Like Hell is Canadian Psychobilly legends The Dead Cats 7th CD release.
Packed with infectious revved-up hillbilly meets nasty Link Wray style Rock 'n' Roll, it's a brand of Psychobilly that the band calls "Hellbilly".
The Deadcats' line-up features the stinging dual lead guitars of Chopper and Gorehound, standup drummer Kermit Von Munster (ex-Big John Bates), and lead growler Mick Tupelo who also slaps the doghouse bass. With great low-brow cover artwork by King Merinuk.
Review by SIMON NOTT:
Multi-faceted musicians of the highest order dish it up.
I loved reviewing this because you never know whats coming next. This mob can take virtually any of the styles that are loosely enveloped in the Rock 'n' Roll genre and excel in playing it. You have the lot here, Rockabilly, Surf, 60s Instrumental, Psychobilly, Hillbilly and a mixture of most of it slammed into the blender. There is always a danger that you can stretch yourself too far and be a jack of all trades and a master of none but this band are an exception to that rule for sure. Great stuff.
