BOSTON'S WILDEST GARAGE STOMPER, ROCKABILLY SENSATIONS! Loaded with 33 Tracks!! Exclusive liner notes by Deke Dickerson.

"People don't realize it wasn't that long ago that there was no internet, no social media, back in the 1990s it was just a completely different game out there for live music.

In our little rockabilly world we began to hear about a band from Boston, young dudes and a female guitar player, and eventually we got our chance to see (and hang out with) The Raging Teens! We were pals from the first time we met them.

And of course, we've stayed pals with Kevin, the wise-cracking lead singer now calling himself Jittery Jack, and Miss Amy Griffin, the powerhouse lead guitarist that really set these "guys" apart from all the other bands back then.

Miss Amy could really play, she was awesome! As time went on, we got to know them better, and in particular the relationship between Kevin and Amy was pretty damn funny-I'm remembering Kevin having to bring a dress to each Raging Teens show because "Amy hates wearing dresses." Amy got a tattoo of a giant steak on her leg, and I once asked her if it had any deep meaning.

She gave me a confused look and quickly answered, "Well, yeah, I LIKE STEAK!" Fair enough! I got to record the Raging Teens second album at my home recording studio in California, it's been a long time ago now, but I still remember all four of them camped out in my living room in sleeping bags, cracking jokes and cutting up.

And that has basically what it's been like all these years, knowing the Raging Teens and then Jittery Jack and Miss Amy-it's just been one big, fun, goofy slumber party.

I love these people and so do a lot of other folks. If you're new to the party, jump in, there's room for you too! Enjoy this retrospective of The Raging Teens, Boston's greatest rockabilly band!" Deke Dickerson, Northridge, CA; April 29, 2021 .
