Crystal & Runnin’ Wild’s second album, recorded in MONO, released on Rhythm Bomb Records, is a turning point for this Brussels based band, that takes them off the beaten path, away from the restrictions of traditional Rockabilly. In 13 songs, ”The Midnight Creature” explores all sounds between 60’s Garage and Desperate Rockabilly. Their compositions take you to a universe, colored with dark humor, where B-movie monsters make pin-up girls cry in sheer horror. And there’s no such thing as a happy end. Without restrictions on the delay nor the decibels, their sound is aggressive and electric, their songs fast and effective. (Except for line dancers of course) A creepy touch to primitive Rock’n’Roll, to much delight of the fans of The Cramps, Link Wray and other Sonics.
Mabey the most powerfull mix of Americana, Blues and Roadhouse Rockabilly you could find on this side of the big pond. The Band around the native American Robert Ryan fires up a true Roots music firework where ever they go.A mix of mostly originals with a few covers thrown in, great melodys and allotta rhythm combined with a highly energetic live show is what you get here.
