Label: Flying Saucer
rockabilly / surf / punk from Vancouver BC
The DEADCATS -coined 'Psychobilly' by the press are Canada's premier entry into the world of psychobilly-voodoobilly alongside such bands as the Cramps, Reverend Horton Heat, and the Meteors. The band has been prowling up and down the West Coast in their present form since 1994 (although the 'original' Deadcats' started in Vancouver back in 1984).
Press Quotes for The Deadcats:
"Great beer-soaked rockabilly fuzz!
...tasty, skillfully-played rockabilly, psychobilly, and honky-tonk country, this music is great...the legions of greasers will surely approve of this!"
- FLIPSIDE magazine (California)
"2nd release from this Canadian rocka /psycho /punka /surfabilly combo. And, like the first one, they are right on track. 2 loud rockin' guitars, drums, great vocals, and a washtub bass (!!) make this bands sound very cool and unique. They are covering the Cramps, Sonics and Vince Taylor here for example, and a whole bunch of hard rockin' originals too. This band can definitely rock!!!"
