Psychobilly
 
Is it punk? Is it rockabilly?

No, it's psychobilly, or if you will, rockabilly voodoo.

And on the whole, it was shit. But somebody must have had a favourite 'psychobilly' band, surely.

There are many others, but Cramps is the right answer.

Now I know why you want those creepers.

Pookie 08.02.2007 06:36 PM

There are many others. But they all sounded the same anyway, apart from The Cramps.

'psychobilly' reminds me of a reeeeally bad local band called 'zenbilly.' either way, rockabilly and shoes with flames on them both need to cease and quit.

Pookie 08.02.2007 06:38 PM

These are my second choice, if I can'y get the white creepers.

words cannot express...

Pookie 08.02.2007 06:50 PM

I know what you mean. Pretty special, huh?

val-holla-ing 08.02.2007 06:52 PM

as special as the kids who were waving at me from a van while i was on my way to work yesterday.

actually, i'd take them over the shoes any day.

How could you not like those? I like the creepers better, but still, not bad tat'all. Everybody has their own style, Pookie is going for the psychobilly look. Personally, I like the poor but kinda hip immigrant looks ala Wille in "Stranger Than Paradise." I just have to shed a few pounds to get the look just right :)

Savage Clone 08.02.2007 07:09 PM

I'll bet dollars to donuts Pookie has some amazing sideburns.

Pookie 08.02.2007 07:13 PM

I used to, but I've reduced them significantly ovin the last couple of years.

I'm sure there's a picture on the Post A Picture of Yourself thread. I'll have a quick look.

Toilet & Bowels 08.02.2007 07:17 PM

english people can't really be rockabilly though

Psychobilly was dreadful. The Cramps were never Psychobilly, they were just Rock n Roll really. Psychobilly was knee length shorts, hawaiian shirts, converse hi-tops and o.t.t quiffs. The Cramps were none of those things.

Special as in special schools and the short bus?

The Cramps used the term psychobilly to describe their music. That was before those other dreadful groups appeared, mind.

They called themselves loads of things, but generally settled on either rnr or rockabilly.

Either way, they sounded fuck all like the Guana Batz, thank god.

Anyone who DOESN'T like The Cramps is in dire need of psychiatric help.

I used to like The Meteors too, and I still get the occasional yearning to hear them again. I've always managed to resist so far though, as I know I'll almost certainly be disappointed.
