Germany seems to be thee mecca for all things Neo Rockabilly and Psychobilly. There are bands in abundance. Taking up the neo gauntlet are Dresden's Raiderz. Recorded by Flatty of Killjoy Records fame and brought to your greedy hands and ears by the band themselves, it's a 100% self-made affair. They remind me of The Rapids in places. I love The Rapids. They have a neo rockabilly crossed with western kind of sound but with that rawness that almost makes them psychobilly, but not quite. For what is essentially a demo CD, or a sampler would maybe be a better description, it's obvious the boys have some fresh ideas as is evident by their intelligent lyrics and not that endless dross about Cadillacs (rockabilly) or having sex with corpses (psychobilly). They get the thumbs up for that alone. I'd like to hear what the boys would come up with in the studio for their first official release. But as an introduction to their sound, this has certainly piqued my interest. You can contact the band directly to get your claws on this little gem through their Facebook or
