Editorial Reviews

After a 12 year hiatus, The Stray Cats toured Europe this summer to overflow audiences and amazing acclaim. Now, Surfdog Records will release 'Rumble in Brixton' on CD and DVD, featuring a rollicking live set from London's Brixton Academy. Both releases also contain "The Mystery Train Kept A Rollin'," their first original studio track since 1992. The Brixton set highlights down-and-dirty versions of signature hits such as "Rock This Town," "(She's) Sexy & 17," "Rumble in Brighton," "Runaway Boys," and "Stray Cat Strut."

The much anticipated reunion of the Stray Cats.
Mike Reed
These guys were born to play live and I for one will make it a personal quest to see them play one more time.
K. S. Briggs
Sleepwalk is my personal favorite, with some of the hottest guitar licks you will ever hear.

I have been waiting for this since the night it was recorded - I havent been disappointed. It arrived on Wednesday and I haven't listened to anything else since then.

Stray Cats were truly glorious that night - from the opening shots of "Rumble In Brighton" (with the obvious but still too good an oppurtunity to be missed final chorus of "Rumble In Brixton") thru a few well selected covers & a number of Stray Cat's originals - Its just a MUST have.

If you compare the songs here to the original recordings (Brighton, Radio, Strut, Rock This Town, Runaway Boys etc etc) the sound on the night - and subsequently this disc - is really raw and ballsy.

I personally was never potty on "Something's Wrong With My Radio" - but on the night I thought it was fantastic, and listening again to this CD hasnt done a thing to change my mind.

"Please Dont Touch" (probably most famous for the version by Motorhead & Girlschool) was another standout point. But the standout points are everywhere. Couple of other great Covers "Good Rocking Tonight" - "20 Flight Rock" are well worth a mention.

The playing is exceptional - guitar bass & drums only, and yet at times they were making more racket than Iron Maiden (and thats remotely intended as an insult to either band). Lee Rocker was better than ever, Slim Jim standing on the Bass and pounding at the snare as if his life depended on it (yet still cooler than ice) & Mr Setzer, well!

This disc also contains a solitary single new recording which is great, but there's no doubt you are just tempted to go back and randomly select any of the live tracks). Its a double disc, without the 1 studio it would have fit onto a single disc.

It was a brilliant night - and this double disc captures it perfectly. No Stray Cats fan will be disappointed.

An incredible return of STRAY CATS, recorded in the summer of 2004 in London on their July European tour to celebrate their 25th anniversary, and the 50th anniversary of rock-n-roll.

This show brings you right back to the heyday of classic STRAY CAT shows, and after all these year these guys really sound great together. The 2 cd set is filled with all the great STRAY CAT songs you've come to love: Rock This Town, Stray Cat Strut, Rumble in Brighton, (She's) Sexy + 17, Runaway Boys, I Won't Stand In Your Way, etc. Plus, some great old time covers like Sleepwalk, My Baby Left Me, Good Rocking Tonight, Twenty Flight Rock, etc. They've Included a brand new studio track: Mystery Train Kept A Rolling, a great throwback song about the Sun Records legends, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, & Roy Orbison. Hopefully, a US tour will be next!

The Stray Cats got back together to tour for their 25th Anniversary and Thank God they did.

This album is full of great music and hot guitar licks from the very first song to the very last.

The Highlights are, Rumble in Brixton, which sets the pace.

Their classic, Stray Cat Strut is another great entry.

Sleepwalk is my personal favorite, with some of the hottest guitar licks you will ever hear.

Over the course of the album he does several early Elvis songs including, My Baby Left Me, That's Alright Mama, Good Rockin Tonight.

You also hear his classic, Rock this town, Sexy and 17, and the Eddie Cochoran classic, 20 Flight Rock.

Fishnet Stockings and Runaway Boys also appear on this CD.

Brian Setzer has become the Jimi Hendrix of Rockabilly.

Setzer has established himself as one of the finest guitarists on the planet. It is really nice to hear Rockabilly with a guitar player of this magnitude, treating us to sizzling hot licks.......If you dont buy this you are missing out.

This album blew me away. I hadn't heard any Stray Cats for some time, but I sure remember the exitment this New York trio generates when they play live. This live double album was recorded in 2004 at London's Brixton Academy and is somewhat a comeback/reunion effort after 25 years in the business with a hiatus in between. This trio is just awesome, the unbelievable guitar playing of Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker's impeccable timing and the ultimate stand up man on bass Slim Jim Phantom make this comeback album a testament to their choice of musical genre I.e 'rockabilly'. These guys were born to play live and I for one will make it a personal quest to see them play one more time. I would like to sum up with some hip or eloquent phrase but really there is no need, the proof is in the pudding.

Finally! The much anticipated reunion of the Stray Cats. This 2-CD, 24 track was recorded at their shindig on November 9, 2004 in Brixton, UK. I, myself got to catch the Stray Cats this summer, one day after the free Ozzfest bash and I'll be honest. Had a better time at the Stray Cats. This title is sure to get your toes tapping as you fully take in the frantic opening title cut "Rumble In Brixton", "Ubangi Stomp", the memorable "Stray Cats Strut", "Sleepwalk", "18 Miles To Memphis", "Rock This Town" {still like watching the Mtv video}, "Good Rockin' Tonight" and "She's Sexy And Seventeen". Long live rockabilly! Simply a M-U-S-T have.
