when i was a dj i found this odd cd and listened to it and was both delighted and horrified but what i heard. it was rockabilly fit for a texas chainsaw massacre movie. but the record proved to have staying power with catchy and mournful songs. i went out and ordered the cd later i was impressed that much. it stayed in my cd player for a week.

This is not Brain Setzer Orchestra. It's not Cherry Poppin' Daddies. Those are the Good Sons of modern rockabilly. Hankenstein is the little brother that picked the wings off insects.
I picked up my copy in a bargain bin, and have loved it since. It has an rockabilly/old school country feel to it but with a modern slasher film twist to it. Trust me, you'll be humming the chorus to Poor Lil Racoon for days to come: poor lil' raccoon, i think he's had it / now he's a nursery for ten thousand lil' maggots. It's catchier than it sounds.
The only problem with it is that it is a niche CD, and you'll fid yourself taking it out to play for people rather than listening to it in your car. But hey, if you've read this far, go ahead and give it a while.

Well, this one was kinda confusing. The release date on this disc was June '99, which made me think it was the follow-up disc to Angry Johnny and the Killbillies' *excellent* 1998 debut, "What's so Funny?" However, when I brought it home and tossed it in the CD player, I was immediately struck by how thin the sound was. The band also didn't sound nearly as together as in WSF. I was rather disappointed - it seemed like one of my favorite bands of '98 had just taken a big step back. Then, on closer inspection of the disc, I noticed it was copyright 1996. Aha, the picture is made clearer. My assumption is that this is a collection of the band's early tracks (maybe released independently or on vinyl awhile back) rereleased by Tar Hut this year. Well, this made the somewhat poorer performances a little more tolerable and understandable, and listening to the disc again with that in mind, I was able to enjoy it more. It's an interesting look into the past of Angry Johnny and the Killbillies, and shows, if nothing else, how far they've come and how much better they've gotten ;) The sound on this disc isn't quite as tight, well-orchestrated or as high-energy as the tracks on "What's so Funny?" but there are a few diamonds in the rough, so to speak. Songs like, "Life, Love, Death and the Meter Man" and "Mr. Undertaker" shined, and I quite enjoyed "Chainsaw Charlie" and "Brand New Girl" too. As owners of their other disc will surmise, while the quality may be a little lower, the subject matter is still pretty much the same ;) Good, murderous hillbilly rock 'n roll. If you don't own "What's so Funny?", my recommendation would be that you buy that one first - it's a far superior album. If you like what you hear on that one, pick this disc up later on, but don't expect the world from it.
