Back to some classic Psychobilly on today’s menu....
Trouble is the first album by The Surf Rats, released by Lost Moment Records in 1988. The original line up consisted of brothers Gaz (guitar and vocals) and Stan (double bass) with Carty on drums. Their sound changed with the decline of the Psychobilly scene in the 1990s and they toured under different names with a line up change in late 2008, still these guys had a massive impact on the Psychobilly scene.
Early on in my music making days, I was listening to and being heavily influenced by Metallica and soon after being slapped in the face by Nirvana,.....a friend gave me a mix tape with track Just Looking on it..... soon after I bought this album and I felt I was initiated into Tokyo’s Psychobilly scene!!
Buying this album I would say is akin to getting your first tattoo.... you’ve taken the initial step, you are in deep, there’s no turning back now!!!!!!!!
