New album: The Side Burns || Freakout 509

Rockabilly from Hong Kong, why not? Please meet The Side Burns: Ziad ‘Rumplestiltskin’ Samman (guitar / vocals), Philip ‘Wolfy Gimble’ Emond (drums / deyboards / vocals), and Paul ‘Mr. Pink’ Thompson (bass / vocals). They play an entertaining mix of country punk and greasy rock ‘n’ roll, reminiscent of The Clash. Their second album Freakout 509 is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through Astral Traveller Records. The ten songs are surprisingly varied: Ode To My Lungs and Liver for example is almost a Rancid-esque song to jump on, while Tequila Blue is a sweet cocktail song with horns. Meant to play loud as you tear down a lonesome dusty road.
