|Diagnosis Dee-Licious, The StarDevils
Kat-Tone Records NO. 001
The StarDevils ignite their fire-driven rockabilly and hillbilly bop with a traditional sound and a dangerous talent for blowing away your billy-bop blues. These four Kentucky Kats have a fever for the bone breaking billy thats sure to set your feet a-tappin and your tongues a-waggin'! Taking their cues from the pioneers of those rock boppin' beats, they have an uncanny ability to play and perform the sounds of yesterday with their own style.
Used to packing the joints in their hometown, the StarDevils marveled crowds at the 2004 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, the 2002 and 2003 Indy Rockabilly Rebel Weekender and the 2nd annual Detroit Motor City Spin-Out, in their three fiery years as bouncin' bop kings. They also played with rockabilly legends such as Rusty York and Orange Ray Hubbard. In 2002 they received a CAMMY award (The Cincinnati Enquirer's Cincinnati Area Music Awards) winners of best country/rockabilly band.
In fact, the album "Diagnosis Dee-Licious" is already a couple of years old, the StarDevils sent me a copy to check out their music and I must say I was pretty impressed. Most of the songs on the album are selfpenned by front man Lance Kaufman and his partner in crime David Rhodes Brown. Uptempo authentic no-nonsense rockabilly with a bite, the way most rockabilly fans like it best. A greasy slapping bass and hot guitar licks, mixed in with a little country steel, these cats are bound to rock away all your blues.
