RARE PSYCHOBILLY FROM THE VAULTS : Volume 1
First volume of Rare Psychobilly From The Vaults delves into the history of Alan Wilson's X-Ray Studios.
Wilson was already a well-known figure on the Psychobilly scene having been a founder member of The Sharks, as well as publishing long running fanzine "Deathrow".
His enthusiasm for music production began as a hobby, but he was soon attracting top name scene bands, as well as unknown bands wanting to make an impact.
This 24 track collection features mostly unreleased recordings from Alan's days running his X-Ray studio. The Sharks and The Frantic Flintstones are the headline bands featured here, but there is plenty of obscure material from long gone bands which Psychobilly fans of the '80s and '90s will remember, most notably Breakout and The Men From Uncle.
This collection of Rare Psychobilly From The Vaults will be sought after by those who were there at the time, as well as second-wave Psychobillies looking to discover long lost gems from the original Psychobilly movement.
Alan Wilson has gone one to become an in demand full-time music producer running the famed Western Star studio. As well as bringing you some great Psychobilly blasts from the past, this collection is also an insight into his early career behind the desk.
