Live & Jive Legends

Another ear-splitter from Heptown Records. This time, a compilation of bands that have graced the Live & Jive stage over the Swedish international music festival's 20-year history. Big mix of rockabilly (Go-Getters, Eddie & the Flatheads), psychobilly (Batmobile), surf (The Barbwires), and punk (The Accidents), plus most stuff in between that sits comfortably in such three-chord, twanged-out, high-octane company. My dad would smash the speakers with a claw hammer, which is reason enough to play it. If you're wondering, the first volume came out five years back, it's a slow-burn thing. MP
