The opening salvo of debut album 'Rebel With A Curse' is aptly baptized 'Rattle Brain'. The tone is set by the double bass rattle and howls from grimy vocal pipes, fit to deliver the vinegar over two-way guitar action. Sparks fly in twelve tuneful tracks, such as A Rockabilly Stole My Bike. Even more striking are reverberant twists on spaghetti westerns in a one-horse town where mariachi mooncalfs blow off steam for amphetamine. In the dead silence after the grand finale, one realizes why the rebel is cursed: this mutant rock & roll is far too addictive.
