|Band||MOONSHINE REUNION||Album||Sex, truck & rock'n roll||Format||CD||Label||Drunkabilly Records||Year||2006||Genre||Rockabilly with Country-Hillbilly influences|
The band taps into half a century of roots music, like the glory days of Sun Records to more recent Americana brilliance of Dave Gonzales and the tender twist of Chris Isaak. Just an old Gretsch guitar won’t cut it for Moonshine Reunion. These excellent players master a wide range of vintage gear to enrich their authentic tone. The moonshine in their moniker is not all about nocturnal light from above, first up is hard home made liquor. That means broken earts are outnumbered by broken bottles. They let the blues slide in lonesome rhymes, but before long the twang swings back to trucking country and rockabilly barnburners.
Like a dear friend that’s gone Hankin’ and returns with new stories to tell, ‘Sex, Trucks ‘n’ Rock & Roll’ honours a fine tradition by delivering outstanding contemporary originals.
Indeed, the kind of record with a lifespan longer than your own. Pure music, pass it on!
