The Lunatics "Come Nude!! Bring Beer!!!

(Crazy Love Records 2014)

Come Nude!! Bring Beer!!!
Gehirn Zum Wein
Iche Habe Die Frauen
Going Down In Flames
I'll Lead You
It Isn't Right
Things Like That
Bierlokal Am Baggersee
Seven Days Of Silence
Echte M├Ądchen

The third album from Germany's Lunatics has a nice clean punchy psychobilly (bordering on neo rockabilly) sound. Instead of the usual horror fare they have that "feel good" thing going on with uplifting melodies that bring a smile to your face in a way that's reminiscent of the Long Tall Texans. To my ears the aforementioned Texans seem to be an influence on the band but I'm hearing traces of Lota Red and The Peacocks in the mix too. There are also some excellent vocal harmonies on here. It's not "psychobilly by numbers" so to speak. It's obvious the boys bring their separate influences in to the mix. What you get then is a variety pack of psychobilly, neo rockabilly, rock'n'roll and punk all stirred together in a cauldron using a slap bass. It's all low calorie and good for you too so don't be afraid to gorge on it!
