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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
