Cow Skull - Chrome Daddies
Rhythm Bomb Records RBR 7003

"Slappin' double bass, slippery lap steel and a couple of other monkeys thrown in just to make them look good! The Chrome Daddies have just updated Western Swing for your listening pleasure (hang in there and eagerly anticipate the next album for living proof). Shake down and limber up for Australia's hottest new swing on strings. Crash Craddock, Moon Mullican and Webb Pierce have been brought into the 21st century. The Chrome Daddies will entice you off your seat with an electrifying mix of rockabilly, western swing, roots & bluesabilly & good ol' new country. If you can't dance, smile or nurse a breaking heart to this music (perhaps all simultaneously) you're probably dead and seeking medical advice is a serious option. The Chrome Daddies are veterans of Queensland's Wintersun Festival, Festival of Beers and Woodford Folk Festival (boy do they love a festival, especially one celebrating beer). They are also all over Australia at the coolest venues and dance clubs. This band has no fear of sound level meters and have attracted a devoted following right across this little rockin' blue planet." -- Official band press release --

Australia's first class rockabilly band with their latest release, called Cow Skull - a fine mixture of all kinds of rock 'n' roll styles, including some cool rhythm & blues.
