Mike Penny & his Moonshiners – Rock Me Daddy-O

Mike Penny & his Moonshiners are back with their third album by Rhythm Bomb Records and reconnect with “Texas Boogie”. Musically richer and more sophisticated, they continue to follow the path that their idols have established at the end of the forties up to the beginning of the 1950s: with “Rock Me Daddy-O”, the Country & Western elements move in the background and are replaced by Jumping Jive, Boogie and Rhythm’n Blues (greetings from Bill Haley). This makes “Rock Me Daddy-O” the most danceable album from the five Hillbillies and should not be missing at any party.

New to the line-up is Mark Margrave on drums. With Ray’s addition of tenor sax, the new sound is even more savage! Fourteen all original tracks will get you shakin’ and keep you there!

Dusty Dave & The Heart Attacks – One Beer Left

After releasing their debut single on Rhythm Bomb Records in 2014, The Heart Attacks are finally back with a full length album, featuring an even more brute sound and a new singer called Dusty Dave. Dave totally lives up to his name and graces the 14 songs with his distinctive, smokey voice, sometimes reminiscent of the mississippi delta, sometimes reminiscent of chicago. He is getting support by Lucky Steve on guitar, Dynamite White on Blues Harp, Rockin’ Bende on Drums and Ray Black on Bass, who is also in charge as the producer of this record. „One Beer Left“ is a longplayer which ranges stilistically from extensive, spherical blues boppers to groovy early 60’s R&B to dirty Rockin’ Blues. A musical challenge which is pretty hard to accomplish but invites the audience to an interesting trip through the world of the blues. In contrast to other blues bands, who cover classical material in a perfect way, Dusty Dave & The Heart Attacks prove that they are darn good at one central thing: putting their hearts and souls into their music.

Egidio “Juke” Ingala & The Jacknives – Switcharoo

In every city, town and hamlet in the world, there are a few people who are just a little different. From a little fishing village in southern Brazil to a factory town in the Ukraine there is someone, maybe even three or four like-minded individuals, who speak an esoteric, universal language. From Stockholm to Los Angeles, from Chicago to Milan and Bologna here are people, not many mind you, who communicate in this unwritten dialect. It is the language of the blues. Just for sake of clarification, I’m not talking about “blues-rock” that ugly, coarse, rather juvenile, bastardized way of communicating, but…real blues.
