Vince Ray & The Boneshakers
The Sound Effect of Sex and Horror CD
The Rock 'n' Roll world is already familiar with Vince Ray via his record covers, T-shirts, tattoo designs and posters, but Ray has also been twangin' on his Gretsch guitars for as long as he's been producing his acclaimed graphic art.
Prior to this CD, Ray has recorded two albums with his band The Vincent Razorbacks and two fronting Vince Ray and the Boneshakers, with both outfits touring Europe. When not gigging, he's had art shows in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and London, and has provided artwork for countless top-names bands in every style of underground Rock 'n' Roll.
Vince Ray has his own way of combining his musical influences, playing a style likened to "Eddie Cochran colliding with Motorhead."
The Boneshakers line-up is a classic rockabilly trio with guitar, double bass and drums. With the power of Motorhead, Rockabilly Rhythms ala The Reverend Horton Heat, and dark sleazy lyrics that would suit The Cramps, the group's live appearances are a visual feast of hand-painted instruments, giant backdrops and an abundance of tattoos. Ray's songs are the sonic equivalent of his artwork - foxy femme fatales, hell-bent hot rods and ghoulish grave-robbing greasers.
