Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Graveyard Shindig is a collection of nine evil original songs. The Creepniks play a combination of surf, rockabilly and spaghetti western. If you take these genres, throw in a shrunken head, mix them in a blender and do a voodoo ritual you'll get something along the lines of the Creepniks' "Graveyard Shindig." Four of the nine songs are surf/spaghetti western instrumentals. The other five songs include the degenerate crooning of the Creepniks’ lead singer Johnny Lockjaw. This album was used by MTV in 2004 throughout the entire season of the Real World San Diego and has also been featured in a handful of independent films.

This is a great disc if you get bored by the usual psycho and surf sound out there. Granted the vox are bit too Cramps-esque at times, but the lyrics are neat-0, like comic book versions of H.P. Lovecraft. I liked the original versions of some of the tracks, when I first discovered Creepniks on CD Baby. The vox were lower so they felt like they took a backseat to the music, and it felt more appropriate. But still, Shadow Over Elkhart and Zombie Stomp, also El Gringo Loco and How Do You Sleep?----all are kickass tunes that justify this purchase.

This collection of ghoulish tunes straight from Cassandra Peterson's cleavage owes a lot to Sergio Leone and Link Wray. The singer sounds like someone's put a clamp on his stones.

It's a novelty act.

What did MTV see in this? I give it 3 Stars I guess. 2 would be more like it. Should you buy it? Probably not.

It wasn't all that long ago that I was exposed to The Creepniks and their unique blend of wild west, surf-a-billy, and rock n' roll madness. Take The Red Elvises, The Route 66 Killers, and The Meteors, plow them down with a '57 Chevy, bury their mangled corpses in unmarked graves in the desert wastelands of left America, have a witch doctor perform a ritual to bring them back to life as flesh-crazed, guitar-weilding zombies of the night, and you have The Creepniks. Occasionally, Johnny, the singer, sounds a bit like the King---our favorite Memphis stiff, Elvis Presley!---with a slit throat and lungs punctured by shards of ribcage. That is, he has a deep, wavery, hip voice that, although cool and agreeable in a lot of ways, possesses a talent somewhat disproportionate to his fingers (which, let's be honest, play the hell out of a six-string). Speaking of playing the hell out of a six-string, the lead guitarist, Seth, puts down some amazing notework over Johnny's twangy rhythms. Jack provides the low-end on the thick strings of his bass, while Pablo rocks the drum kit like it's nobody's buisiness. These four Texans are what the music world too often lacks---diversity, experimentation, originality, and open-mindedness. Sadly, I think the Creepniks have since gone their separate ways. We can only hope for a reunion. And if not a reunion, I then hope that each finds his way into a new and equally great endeavor. The graveyards of America just won't be the same unless their sound continues in some way.

Check out Graveyard Shindig on Gravewax Records, though. I would dare say that you'll be glad you did.
