Here’s an Tasmanian four-piece that values the American dream and British Teddy Boy music, and releases their music through an Austrian label. We’re talking rockabilly veterans Raccoons – Dave “Rocky” Hughes (vocals), Phil Grinham (guitar), Sandy Campbell (bass), and Grant “Wocko” Watkins (drums) – and their new album Panic, which features 16 original fast-paced tracks to dance to. The skilled musicians bring the sound of classic rockabilly into the modern age, guaranteeing happy smiles and enthusiastic toe-tapping. Put on your dancing shoes, pour yourself a cocktail, and press play.
Panic is out now digitally and on CD via Plan 9 Trash Records.
