All Draped Up CD
The Raccoons are a rockabilly band from Tasmania with a tough, wiry sound influenced by the British Teddy Boy Rock 'n' Roll style - this makes them an interesting alternative to the many rockabilly bands inspired by the original American style.
Originally formed in 1987, The Raccoons finally cemented their current line up in 2012.
The band, which plays mostly original materials they recorded their EP Slowburn during the winter months of 2014.
Established British label Raucous Records was suitably impressed by this EP, and signed up the band for their debut album All Draped Up.
Review by Chema Valbuena (Rock Therapy Radio Show)
This is the the last work of the Tasmanian quartet, The Raccoons.
Their image and sound takes us to the essence of the Rockabilly revival, to the best of British Rockabilly.
Here are twelve of their own songs where The Raccoons roll out their greasy and uncompromising rock & roll to create diverse and varied sounds.
Without leaving the spirit of wild and provocative rockin’ these divine, purists of rock & roll will please the ears.
The Raccoons - pure rockin’ attitude, a must-see lesson for future rockers!
