"Do The Devil" and "1965 GTO" should be listened to with caution while manning a vehicle. These songs seem to cause bloodthirsty-speed-demon driving and serious hip shaking. Common sense tells you not to stomp the gas pedal while in "Drive," but these cats make it so damn hard to sit still and take it.
We all know that a plethera of half-crap bands came out of the whole swing/rockabilly revival and it was suddenly "cool" to be a hepcat with greasy kid stuff in your hair. Half of these bands were manufactured by labels to make money and had no soul. The thing that stands out about The Amazing Royal Crowns is that they LOVED what they did. They felt it in their bones. The music came out of them, moved through them, moved through us. They sacrificed their health, their time and their money to go out on the road and play their kick ass music for nothing more than the enjoyment they got out of it. All done with style. They did not do it for the money. They did it because they loved it. It was a shame to see greed from self-made rivals, Royal Crown Review, destroy such talent and fevered passion...
The Amazing Royal Crowns.....Rest In Grease
The energy is all there, especially on "Do the Devil", "1965 GTO" and "Swimming in Drinks". The songs do rock hard, but they also have great musical hooks and awesome rhythm section backing up the guitars and vocals. It is rare to find a CD these days that does not have filler songs or some tracks that are just "ok". This is one of those rare few.
If you are looking for some great punk-a-billy or just something that rocks but does not sound like just all the other new-punk groups, check out this CD. You will not be sorry.
Other than this problem, the music is great rocka-punka-pyscho-billy fare.

Although better live, the Crowns put out a tight, fast, and energetic CD. There are hints of the Cramps, Reverend Horton Heat, and Elvis rolled up into one. Read morePublished on December 1, 1998
