Would you like to talk about Rock 'n' Rollabilly?
The cars are cool. Rock 'n' Roll is king. And Faster Pussycat Kill Kill are the baddest, whiskey swilling Rock 'n' Rollabillies in the 'hood. They have been gaining converts around the country on their numerous escapades and will be back for a reckoning on their third tour of duty in November 2010!
Madman Reuben 'Teddyboy' Collins - as famous for his onstage antics as for the music itself - fronts this pack of underground-chic ultra-cool juvenile delinquents, backed up by go-go girl rhythm section, Chloe 'Bang Bang' Langley - Vocals and Drums and Hannah 'Kid kitten' Collins - Bass.
Is it very serious or silly? With music about serious experiences such as one night
stands, high skool runaways and V8 motors, these cats are '50s and '60s inspired,
with influences such as The Sonics, The Kinks, Wanda Jackson, and Brian Setzer.
But instead of recreating such music, Faster Pussycat fuse it with their modern
formulated Rock 'n' Roll... Hence the birth of Surfabilly Rock 'n' Roll.
Faster Pussycat Kill Kill are Rock 'n' Roll Surfabilly with Pop sensibilities.
Since forming in 2008, Faster Pussycat Kill Kill have released 'Get A Little Closer', a seven track EP which won them national acclaim and Kiwi FM's Indie Album of the Week.
They have been busy over the last month tracking a new album, 'Kissy Pow', in the
beautiful back country of Golden Bay. It will be released later this year in New Zealand and Australia. Two singles are also in the pipeline with videos made by filmy super-greats Rob Dawson and Michael Sunderland.
