PostSubject: Rockabiilly Riot All Original   Tue May 20, 2014 2:02 am

New all original rockabilly CD coming out in August this is press release from site on internet:



Brian Setzer has been one of the greatest revivalists of classic Rockabilly music over the last thirty years. His work with the Stray Cats, as a solo artist and, even at time, with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, has kept the style from the early days of rock in the ears of the modern day music fans.

While Setzer has concentrated as of late on splitting his time between covers and original material, he has decided to go all new with his upcoming album Rockabilly Riot: All Original.

Setzer is joined on the new set by Mark Winchester (bass), Kevin McKendree (piano) and Noah Levy (drums) of which he said "I think the only way you can make a better rockabilly record is if you get Elvis to sing…because Mark Winchester Kevin McKendree and Noah Levy are the best in their craft. Nobody plays a better slap bass than Mark. Kevin McKendree calls himself a “rockabilly piano player,” I’ve never heard anybody say that. And Noah just has a very swampy groovy feel, which makes the whole thing sound kinda loose."

The album was produced by Peter Collins who he has worked with on a number of his best known albums in the past. Setzer said of working, once again, with Collins "It’s funny how English people seem to have a more sensibility about what rockabilly music is, even though it was invented in the south. They seem to know what it should sound like. Peter Collins is experienced and an accomplished producer, he’s done a lot of records, but he loves rockabilly music and he knows what it should sound like."

Setzer went on to say "I think this album sounds to me a little bit like the first Stray Cats record…its rockabilly songs. It’s not just blues songs in the rockabilly style. People like to call it ‘neo-billy’ I suppose, which is some invented word that somebody came up with, but if that’s the word they want to use, I’d like to go with that because it sounds to me like it’s very modern and fresh sounding rockabilly."

Track List:

•Let’s Shake (first single from the album)
•Rockabilly Blues
•Vinyl Records
•Lemme Slide
•Nothing Is A Sure Thing
•What’s Her Name
•Calamity Jane
•The Girl With The Blues In Her Eyes
•Stiletto Cool
•I Should Have Had A V8
•Blue Lights Big City
•Cock-a-Doodle Don’t

When Setzer posted on his FB site a few pictures from the recording, there was a song book with 14 songs.

I hope that at least in Japan they get them as bonus tracks!

Release date:  August 12th!  I can't wait!

I'm hoping all 14 tunes surface as well.  We did get teased a bit in a similar fashion from a track listing back when the Rockabilly Riot: Volume One sessions were going on.  I believe "My Baby Left Me" was listed.  I love that song, and really wanted Brian to include it on the record, but of course, it's not a Sun recording.  I don't even know if it was ever recorded.  But it was on a printed piece of paper with the other Riot songs posted on the old Setzer site back in February or March 2005, while the recording sessions were happening.  I hope the other tunes from the new album exist and surface somewhere.

Guitar World has a small article that looks like it was culled largely from the press release (or vice versa).  However, there is a small Q & A section which has this quote from Brian:  "I think this album is pretty similar to two albums I’ve cut in the past. It sounds to me a little be like Ignition: Part 2 and also like the first Stray Cats record."

Sold.  I'll take it in cd, vinyl, and whatever import version gets me extra music.

"How do you describe rockabilly?

Rockabilly music should be up there in regards with blues music. It should be playing in arenas. And, I think, it’s better than the blues because it has a style to it, it has accomplished musicians playing it and it’s totally American. So I think it’s very underrated music that should be more in the forefront of our culture. "

The cover is like a work of art, and the viewer is left to guess at the significance (or lackthereof) of the elements within:

With this album, King Brian Setzer (paying homage to his predecessor, Eddie Cochran) perches precariously, presiding over a rusted out iron junkyard of rockabilly in a forest of other musical genres.

Or maybe it goes no deeper than "it looked cool."

Well-spotted, Andi! I'm not sure, but that quite possibly could be the Eddie Cochran photograph that started it all for Brian. Brian has mentioned in the past that a picture he saw on an Eddie Cochran anthology LP in the late 70s attracted him immediately to purchasing the album. He has said more than once how the photo grabbed his attention and inspired him, possibly even before hearing a note. Brian has credited the photo for pointing him in the direction of that first Gretsch.

It's so cool that Brian's sporting the Cochran outfit on the album cover. I'm even more excited to get my hands on it. I am definitely tracking down the vinyl so I can have that photo in glorious LP splendor!

Hi to all Brian's fans.
It's a big time, a great joy moment when we are here talking about the "coming soon" record.
Thanks for the precisions you give about the sleeve (what a tribute to Eddie, thanks Andi !), the tracks list and the interview.
Thanks to Jon, I've heard Nothing Is A Sure Thing on youtube, between two covers of... Eddie Cochran of course (Nervous Breakdown & Somethin'Else)

83 days (if I am counting well) to wait  bounce bounce bounce 

I hope this kind of delicious moment will bring back here a lot of fans...

http://eil.com/images/main/Eddie+Cochran+-+The+Eddie+Cochran+Singles+Album+%2B+7%22+Single+%26+Poster+-+LP+RECORD-511707.jpg

I'm almost certain this is the pic that inspired him - see 'Cool Cats - Rock'n'Roll Style ' DVD from the eighties - he describes it and holds his hands to show how EC was holding his guitar in the pic.

Sorry I don't know how to post the actual pic - just the link appearing!

This was quite an old UK release - I bought it before I had heard of Stray Cats - and I'd seen them in London before they ever had a record deal etc - has been re-released a few times in same cover with extras like free poster etc.

Looking at the 1971 copyright date on the Cochran photo, is it possible that the argyle-pants photo was contained within the album artwork, possibly in the form of an included poster?  Even if it wasn't, just the story of Eddie being Brian's "main man," and the power of a photograph being every bit as influential as the music speaks volumes to how important the album artwork is on this new LP.

Gosh it's been so long since I've been here. Good to see some familiar names! Where's Tommy?

I know everybody's aching to hear the latest punk polka, err Setzer. This UK Amazon site has previews, and it sounds AWESOME!

He's right. Rockabilly music is severely under appreciated. People think rockabilly and and old guy with a straw hat and overalls immediately pops in their head. It's the "abilly" thing that scares people just as Paul Roman of The Quakes said. "Billy" music isn't cool to young kids because they think of that image. The reality is, they've never even heard it. Think about it, it's one of the few if not, only sub-cultures that exist today and still be have it be fashionable. Rolled up jeans and pomps still can look cool today. Do people still wear leisure suits and bell bottoms? Anyone bringing back disco music?
