SETZER, GARY & RYAN, BARRY
ROCKABILLY EXPRESS (RAUCOUS RECORDS)
In a Rockabilly trio fronted by Brian Setzer, brother Gary played a stripped-down, stand-up drum kit - a piece of Rockabilly history which continued when the Tomcats evolved into the Stray Cats, and Brian headed off to London and international stardom with Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom.
Meanwhile Gary Setzer continued rockin', over the years playing in The Rebel Rockers and King Cadillac, and the Setzer Brothers also cut a live album together in Japan.
Years of remaining true to his love of Rockabilly have paid off on this latest album on which he teams up with legendary Rockabilly guitarist Barry Ryan of The Rockats, one of the most successful American bands of the Rockabilly Revival.
The Rockats were signed by Island Records, and moved to RCA in 1984, releasing a classic Rockabilly album in Make That Move with the accompanying video becoming an MTV hit.
Gary Setzer and Barry Ryan is the perfect Rockabilly combination, and their debut album Rockabilly Express surpasses all their previous work.
This Rockabilly Express rocks hard and is not for the feint hearted.
